Deaf performer Patrick Fisher, also known as Mr. Shineyhead, will bring American Sign Language, theater and laughter to Central Michigan University 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28 in Anspach Hall room 162.

The show will be one of many events being held for Deaf Awareness Week, hosted by the American Sign Language Division of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

According to the official Mr. Shineyhead website, Fisher began his work as a deaf comedian in 2005 as “a way to provide services to those who want to learn more about theatre through deaf eyes.” He will perform popular skits such as “Deaf Dog in the Park” and “Top 20 Errors ASL Students make.”

Although this performance will be done in American Sign Language by the deaf comedian, there will be an interpreter present providing the voice of Mr. Shineyhead.

The show is open to the public, and admission is free.
