20s & 30s Comedy Show with a Message: Building Inclusive Communities

Sat, Feb 18, 2023 • 8:00 PM10:00 PM




In honor of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month we are proud to partner with B’nai Jeshurun to host comedian and activist Pamela Rae Schuller. She doesn’t just “tolerate” what makes her different; she embraces it, loves it, and finds the funny in it…while challenging her audiences to do the same. We’ll start with havdalah and drinks, followed by a set from Pamela on disability and inclusion.

Pamela Rae Schuller has performed in six countries, almost every state in the US, and for more than 100,000 kids, teens, and adults. She holds a BA in Psychology and Youth Outreach Through the Arts, an MA in Child Advocacy and Policy, where she focused her studies on creating comedy and improvisational theater programs as a tool for youth with disabilities to improve self-advocacy skills and a certificate in Executive Coaching focused on leadership in the digital age from MIT. 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. From squeaky clean to working blue, she gets audiences of every age comfortable and laughing through storytelling and humor.

B’nai Jeshurun is committed to making this event accessible. Please email Margaret Piraino or call her at 646-525-4387 to request accommodations. Advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility needs. The event will be held on the first floor of our Community House. There are no stairs to enter the building or to reach the event room. Restrooms are located down the hall from the event room and also do not require stairs.

This event is co-sponsored by: The Grad Network, Congregation Rodeph Sholom, Ramah, JTS, and Darkhei Noam Young Professionals.
