William Reisacher, MD, an associate professor in the department of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, has always enjoyed making people laugh. “I also like being up on a stage in front of an audience, so stand-up comedy was the perfect way to combine those two activities,” he said.
Dr. Reisacher finds immense importance in his interests outside of the office to help relieve stress and feed the creative part of his mind. In addition to activities such as running and songwriting, he has been performing stand-up comedy for the past 10 years.
