Join us for an evening of laughter at Temple Emanuel with inclusion comedian Pamela Schuller!
As a teen, Schuller had the worst-diagnosed case of Tourette syndrome in the country, a touch of obsessive-compulsive disorder and a whole lot of pent-up anger. She spent years depressed and wishing her differences away. Over time, she started looking at her life differently and turned her obstacles and challenges into the very fuel that propels her.
Now an internationally known disability and mental health advocate and professional standup comedian, Schuller’s stories of growing up in a body she had no control over are engaging, powerful, a little bit heart-wrenching and unapologetically funny.
Schuller has spoken and performed in seven countries, in every state in the U.S. and for more than 95,000 kids, teens and professionals. She holds a BA in psychology and youth outreach through the arts and an MA in child advocacy and policy, with post-masters’ certificates in executive coaching and leadership in the digital age.
She has grown that skill set into a repertoire that teaches kids and teens to be proud of who they are, communities to be deeply inclusive and corporate teams to be innovative and learn to make smart, bold moves. She can be seen on BuzzFeed, Doctor Mike videos and NBC, and she has worked on inclusion and accessibility with Disney, Google, WellsFargo and United Airlines, to name just a few.
Schuller doesn’t just “tolerate” what makes her different; she embraces it, loves it and finds the funny in it, all while challenging her audiences to do the same.
