Description

Tom is a stand-up comic with a checkered career. At one point everyone thought that his older sister would join him to make up a comedy duo, but Ellen was always more minded towards drawing and art in general.

But she remained the driving force behind Tom’s work and helped obtain and support his live gigs. Then one day she came to Tom with some cruel news: she had pancreatic cancer. Surgery was followed by hospitalisation.

Nothing to laugh at you’d imagine, but Tom and Ellen continue to bounce humor off each other with Tom running the gauntlet of the doctors’ ire to take Ellen out to see the trees and her favourite statue in the park, The Mad Maiden by Rik Wouters, inspired by dancer Isadora Duncan.

To her dying day Ellen thought the statue looked mad with joy!
