When Nick Ross was 27 years old, he was diagnosed with cancer. As soon as he was finished with chemotherapy, he started telling stories of his experiences. These stories were compiled into an anthology titled ‘Highly Evolved Human’ that ran at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York to critical acclaim.
Now, the stories have been turned into a video series by the same name–a way to connect people all over the world around the harrowing, but also hilarious and surprising stories of what young people with cancer experience. Using clever, honest, and satirical storytelling techniques and fun, over-the-top recreations, the Highly Evolved Human series sparks conversation around this somewhat ‘taboo’ topic.
