Pamela Schuller

Author, Comedian, Advocate, Pamela Comedy

Pamela Rae Schuller was once diagnosed with the most severe documented case of Tourette syndrome in the United States, coupled with a touch of obsessive compulsive disorder and a whole lot of anger. From the depths of depression and grappling with suicidal thoughts, she wished away her differences. Through a transformative shift, Pamela began reframing her life and harnessing her adversity as the driving force behind her journey. She now stands tall at four foot six (and a half) as a globally recognized disability and mental health advocate and professional stand-up comedian. Her engaging, funny, and powerful stories resonate with audiences worldwide. With the finesse of a professional stand-up comedian, Pamela seamlessly blends her narrative with the actionable tips and tools of a seasoned educator. Her tales of navigating a body beyond her control are not only captivating but also laced with unapologetic humor that resonates with audiences ranging from youth to corporate C-suites. Pamela has addressed international audiences and clients in every state in the U.S., reaching 100,000+ children, teens, and professionals. Equipped with degrees in psychology and advocacy through art, a master's in advocacy and policy, and certificates in executive coaching and DEI methods, she has translated her expertise into a repertoire that instills pride in young people, fosters profound inclusivity in communities, and inspires innovation in corporate teams, compelling them to make strategic and audacious moves to strengthen their team through inclusive efforts. Her reach extends beyond the stage and boardrooms, with appearances on Netflix, Curiositystream, Doctor Mike videos, and NBC, and she has consulted on inclusion best practices with industry giants like Disney, Google, GEICO, and Salesforce (to name a few). Pamela doesn’t just “tolerate” her uniqueness: she wholeheartedly embraces, loves, and finds humor in it. She exemplifies the transformative power of embracing our authentic selves and creating communities and organizations where people can do the same.
