Let’s face it. Healthcare isn’t affordable. I guess that’s where Therapy Gecko comes in. 

“Hey, my name is Lyle. Two years ago I was sitting in my mom’s basement when I found the Reddit Public Access Network and created a show called Therapy Gecko where people call in to talk with an unlicensed lizard therapist about anything.”

That quote is taken from a Reddit thread written four years ago, in which everyone’s favorite unlicensed therapist talked about his journey—one that took him from being a comedian living in his mom’s basement to a MAN/LIZARD with millions of followers. Now, he’s bringing his particular brand of podcast/advice column/performance art to The Crocodile.

Since exploding onto the web, he’s traveled to numerous countries on a sold-out world tour. He’s had celebrities like Lil Yachty and Doja Cat on his show. And let’s face it, talking to a stranger about your problems is probably cathartic, even if he is wearing GREEN FACEPAINT. Yes, you can be invited on stage to share what’s vexing you, whether that’s a problem in your polycule or if you need to set some boundaries with a homie who hasn’t had your back.
