Lynette Louise

A New Spin on Autism: Answers! – Aspergers, Autism, Comedy and College do they Mix?

Jake Rush was diagnosed with Asperger’s at eleven years of age. He is presently a twenty-two year old senior at the University of Southern California where he is majoring in Acting in the School of Dramatic Arts and a Comedy Minor from the School of Cinematic Arts.

Jake’s preesent passion and future plans though revolve around Stand-up comedy. He has performed at many clubs with his favorite being The Comedy Store.

Lynette Louise, our show host, also found Stand-up a useful career path and social teaching ground. Together Jake and Lynette examine the challenges of Asperger’s, the feelings surrounding disgnosis and the strangeness of loosing a diagnosis simply because it no longer exists.

Jake shares a few jokes, some memories and some advice.  Jake’s main sharing is that tough love is the love that moves mountains.
