I enjoyed this spotlight quite a bit. It's been a long time since I've seen the movie and was unaware of the real Patch Adams. He really does make you want to be a better person.

I have followed Patch Adams for over 20 years and find him a great human being. Great Spotlight!

is a social activist, citizen diplomat, professional clown, performer, and author. He founded the Gesundheit! Institute in 1972. Every year he organizes a group of volunteers from around the world to travel to various countries where they dress and perform as clowns, bringing hope and joy to orphans, patients, and others in need. His life inspired the film Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams. Adams promotes a different health care model (i.e. one not funded by insurance policies) in collaboration with the Gesundheit! Institute.

His path crossed Issa's because of John Lent, an American writer and cartoon and comic art critic, who has published articles about Issa and Patch. Because of their connection, Issa and Patch are working on a project to combine art and clown's play, which will be provide humor and healing for people in hospitals and clinics in Cameroon.
