A comedian who has transformed his disability into a career is bringing his act to MTSU.
Samuel J. Comroe, a fourth-place finalist on the 2018 season of the NBC reality television series “America’s Got Talent,” will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, in the university’s Student Union Ballroom.
Comroe was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome at age 6. His comedy material is based on his experiences dealing with the neurological disorder, which is characterized by involuntary movements and vocal utterances.
A Los Angeles native, Comroe was the winner of Ricky Gervais’ “Just Sayin’ App” comedy competition in 2012 and the 2013 San Francisco Comedy Competition. He has appeared on “Conan” on TBS, “Real Husbands of Hollywood with Kevin Hart” on BET and All Def Digital’s “Comedy Originals.” Comroe performs at more than 100 clubs and colleges each year.
MTSU’s Disability and Access Center is presenting Comroe’s performance with the Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs, MTSU Counseling and Testing Services, the MTSU Student Programming and Activities Office and Student Programming and Raider Entertainment.
