This video from A Bit of Fry and Laurie is the best bit I’ve seen of someone in full-blown mania. Fry does have bipolar disorder. Here he uses it to comic effect.

Days before he died of cardiomyopathy in September of 1995, actor Jeremy Brett wrote and recorded an appeal for The Manic Depression Fellowship charity (which has since been renamed Bipolar UK). It was aired on the BBC right before he died.  This was his last public recording. Since no one thought it would be his last recording, a good copy of it no longer exists. But some fans managed to do a home recording and one has finally gone up on YouTube.
