Highlights of the BENEFIT
Congressman Jamie Raskin
Jamie Raskin is a well-known Congressman from our area who serves as the Ranking Member of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. He is a constitutional law professor and author of the book Unthinkable: Trauma, Truth and the Trials of American Democracy about his son’s suicide and his lead on the recent impeachment trial of the former president. He is a cancer survivor.
Congressman Raskin will be addressing the connection between ADHD, Mental Health, and Suicide.
LADY ADHD: Blaire Postman
“LADY ADHD” leaps from the perpetual-motion mind of comedian, quirky genius, and overall rather loud person, Blaire Postman. “Imagine if all the open tabs on your computer from a weekend of spiraling down Wikipedia rabbit holes were then woven into a cogent and brutally funny theory about the brain, art, aging, Americana and The Self.”
Part Stand Up, part Ted Talk, "LADY ADHD" is a solo show combining Blaire's signature flip chart stand-up comedy pieces (yes, flip charts) with running commentary about her life with long-undiagnosed ADHD, and lessons learned where the two intersect about how her brain, and the world, both work.
