Event Description

Laughter is Sacred Space – State College, PA

Laughter is Sacred Space is on tour and coming to State College, PA during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at Faith United Church of Christ, 300 E College Ave, State College, PA 16801. Admission is free! Sponsored by 3rd Way Collective and Learning to Live: What's Your Story?

In this gritty and dramatic talk, Ted Swartz 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.
