Comedian Rick Shapiro Talks About Doing Comedy With Parkinsons

In April 2012, comedian Rick Shapiro was very sick, and didn't know why. He was completely immobilized for about two months. He had spent ninety days in a hospital, sixty days in a nursing home, two weeks in a rehabilitation facility, and was continually misdiagnosed throughout the process. Rick and his wife went through a frustrating ordeal, with some doctors not returning their calls for months, others suggesting that Rick's problems stemmed from an identity crisis. One doctor even told Rick-- under his breath-- maybe you should take up basketball. A year later, for the first time, a doctor told them that she felt Shapiro needed a doctor who knew more than she did, and referred Rick and Tracy to the Mayo clinic.
