Mimi Hayes is an American comedian and author of "I'll Be OK, It's Just a Hole in My Head." Hayes wrote her first memoir while recovering from a brain injury at the age of twenty-two. Her honest take on trauma and love followed her to the stage as a stand-up comedian where she has performed on stages such as TEDx, Denver Comedy Works, Broadway Comedy Club, The Moth, Stand Up NY, Dangerfield's, PDA Space, and The Upright Citizen’s Brigade. She has also opened for Jim Gaffigan and Ari Eljárn and made her headlining debut at The Junkyard Hamilton this year. Her one-woman storytelling shows "I'll Be OK" and “20-Nothing” have toured at the Edinburgh and Denver Fringe Festivals with rave reviews. Mimi’s TED Talk “Laughter is NOT the best medicine” has reached international audiences and her unique collection of viral TikToks has garnered her millions of views. She has been featured by National Public Radio, The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation, Fox31 Denver, Mogul, HelloGiggles, and The San Francisco Giants. She is currently working on a documentary, her second book "20-Nothing," and running her own business as a writing coach.   

I so appreciated Mimi's honesty and vulnerability as she courageously shared her story. Her performance was a comedy and also contained some very relevant themes for life. Listening to her loving dialogue with her younger self was so moving and a powerful example of how to experience healing by extending grace to ourselves. I am grateful I was able to see this performance!
Second year I've seen Mimi at fringe. The last show was great. This one was even funnier
This was SOOOOO good! A thrilling rollercoaster of the emotions through your 20s! Wish I had a message like this when I was in my 20s! A must see for Fringe
