Please join Kerem Shalom of Concord as we kick off Jewish Disability Month with “What Makes Me Tic: Comedy & Storytelling with a Message” with Pamela Rae Schuller.
The evening will begin with a dessert and cocktail reception at 7 p.m., followed by the performance, with ASL interpreter, at 8 p.m..
Pamela is an internationally known disability and mental health advocate and professional stand-up comedian known for her use of storytelling and comedy to inspire communities to a new understanding of inclusion.
You may know her from BuzzFeed, Doctor Mike Videos, and NBC, or as one of the under 36 who is changing the face of the Jewish community. Pamela’s stories of growing up in a body she had no control over are engaging, powerful, a little bit heart-wrenching, and unapologetically funny.
Pamela 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, as well as post-Masters certificates in executive coaching and Leadership in the Digital Age.
She has grown that skillset 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.
Pamela 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.
The event takes place in-person, with special thanks to the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project. For those whose circumstances do not allow for participating in-person, we hope you will join us for this special evening of inclusion and understanding via Zoom.
Registration is required for both in-person and online tickets. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
