He can't hear the laughter
Howie Seago an actor, director, producer and theater instructor despite being deaf will share comedic insights on hearing peoples perspectives of deafness and perform deaf-=related humor and stories this Friday at Highline Community College.
The show, presented by the colleges American Sign Language (ASL) Club , is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the Student Union (Building 8) on the colleges main campus in Des Moines.
My stand-up schtick is not intended for all family members, Seago said, laughing. The sensitive and easily offended attend at their own risk.
For those who can hear, the show is spoken language-interpreted.
We want to help bridge the gap between the hearing and deaf communities by sharing the humor, culture and language of the deaf, said Roman Wright, HCCs ASL instructor and ASL club adviser.
Seagos film and TV credits include Beyond Silence, Oscar-nominated in 1998 for Best Foreign Film, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Hunter and The Equalizer. On the stage, has performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., off-Broadway and in international tours.
