Discover how laughter can change the way people view others as Cultural Odyssey’s co-artistic director Rhodessa Jones interviews Touretteshero artistic director Jessica Thom at “Laughter as a Catalyst for Change.” As a person living with Tourettes syndrome, Thom’s works addresses the subject, and she’s found that humor can be a powerful tool in fighting prejudice and changing mainstream society’s perspective on, and acceptance of, people with disabilities and overcome their fear of “the other.”
