Eyal Eltawil

Eyal Eltawil is an Israeli actor, screen writer, stand-up comedian, TEDx speaker and author who should not be alive today, but he is.

At the age of 31, Eyal woke up with severe gut pains that were diagnosed as stage 4 terminal cancer, Ewing Sarcoma. Even after intensive treatments, doctors told Eyal he had 5% chances of recovery.

“When I received the devastating news from the doctors I had to decide whether to fall into deep depression or try and find a creative solution. Despite the fears I decided to laugh as much as I could through any experience I might go through during that time. Today I can definitely say that humor saved my life.”
