Inside Scoop: Hollywood Royalty Takes the Throne

Considering that Hollywood’s A-listers have walked countless red carpets and attended the most lavish events, it’s not surprising that most of them can throw a pretty fantastic party of their own.

But the blowout that Martin Short, Tom Hanks and Steve Martin throw lacks the common staples of a successful shindig. Aside from the absence of tasty appetizers and festive decorations, the most surprising part is the theme?- and the afterparty’s location.

Every two years, the men have a “colonoscopy party,” claiming that sharing the pre-procedure experience (and the toilet) makes the whole thing a bit more bearable. They manage to squeeze in plenty of fun in between trips to the bathroom, where they really let the good times roll?- the toilet paper roll, that is. And afterward, they ride together to the doctor’s office.

At Charleston GI, we believe that awareness is key. And as it turns out, raising awareness and prioritizing colon health can be a blast! But even if you don’t receive an invitation to a colonoscopy party, simply discussing the procedure (and its more unpleasant aspects) with a close friend or family member is often enough to ease patients’ fears.
