Event Description

Laughter is Sacred Space – La Junta, CO

Ted Swartz will present Laughter is Sacred Space in La Junta, CO on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 7:00 pm at the Ed Stafford Theater at Otero Junior College, 1802 Colorado Ave., La Junta, CO.  Admission is free and the event is open to the public.

In this gritty and dramatic talk, Ted walks you through his relationship with friend and business partner, Lee Eshleman, who took his own life in 2007. Ted explores the paradox of working with a comedic partner struggling with bipolar disorder, as well as the challenge of writing and performing stories about God while experiencing the absence of God after Lee’s death.

Using multi-media and his twenty years of storytelling experience, Laughter is Sacred Space is honest, funny and vulnerable, and reveals the unique journey of working as a comedic actor under the shadow of a mental illness, and offers hope and humor in a way that only Ted could deliver.
