Good Heroin is an intensely funny interview show from the mind of Dave Ross. It's an earnest discussion of mental health and a vibrant exploration of life and a dumb idiot comedian having fun being dumb. Dave talks to all kinds of people -- from musicians to comedians to psychologists to anyone -- about who they are and how they feel. They delve down to the root of their life or their anxieties or their victories or what ails them and then, together, they make fun of it.
