Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo Annual Meeting
Tuesday, August 8
Congregation B’nai Israel, 6525 Sylvania Avenue
Free event – dinner included
Comedian Pamela Rae Schuller is relentlessly funny. Her observations on disability, mental illness, dating, family, and past misadventures have led to brutally honest confessions about what it is like being 4-foot-6 (and a half) and having “a whole lot of Tourette Syndrome.” As a teen, Pamela had the worst-diagnosed case of Tourette's in the country, a touch of obsessive compulsive disorder, and a whole lot of pent-up anger. She spent years depressed, suicidal, 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 stand-up comedian, 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.
