About Us


Cracked Up Tee Hee Shirts was created by husband and wife team, Bill and Kate Rodgers. Mental health is central to their lives as Kate is bipolar and Bill is her carer.

 Launched in 2013 Cracked Up Tee Hee Shirts immediately received praise and a great deal of interest. Bill is kept busy filling orders, while Kate works hard to promote the business to those interested in mental well being. The concept is a winner – stamping out mental health stigma through humour. Bill and Kate believe it is not only time to change – it is time to laugh.

Bill is an actor with 30 years experience and has appeared in many television programs such as Shameless, Coronation Street, Heartbeat, Emmerdale and he was nominated Villain of the Year for his long running part in BBC TV's Doctors.

Kate is an award winning comedienne and playwright. She is a business journalist, author and media presenter. ITV have made a documentary outlining Kate’s mental illness and her recovery. It is aptly called Laughter is the Best Medicine. Her best selling book is called Pearls of Bizdom

Bill and Kate have another business called HumourUs. They offer speeches and seminars to the corporate world. Here they promote stress management and employee well being. And Bill teaches presentation skills. Clients include HSBC Bank Plc, Lloyds TSB, Natwest, RBS, IBM, GSK, AstraZeneca, Diagio, Kings Fund, CS2 Lawyers, Education Leeds. Equally comfortable in the private and public sectors; Bill and Kate have worked with 70 housing associations, 24 local and county councils, over 100 NHS departments and charities such as Mind, Rethink and Macmillan.

Kate also works with groups that are interested in humour as a life skill.
