A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO DEMENTIA….A Stand Up Comedian’s Race
Against Time by Sharon Lacey
About The Book:
Life doesn't always go the way you plan it. With
Alzheimer's Disease striking members of her immediate family, Sharon Lacey
feared she'd be next. She figured she'd better do everything
she'd always wanted to do before it was too late.
Although she was close to retirement age and still loved her job as a middle
school teacher, Sharon decided to challenge her brain by taking her life in a
new direction: Stand up comedy.
This book takes you on one woman's journey from her first scary open mic,
to life on the road as a comic, to performing in a war zone in Iraq.
Her race against dementia ultimately leads her to Africa where she entertains
Ugandans in two of their tribal languages, and brings desperately needed
supplies to children and elderly in the villages.
Not only does she learn that life doesn't end at age 50, Sharon Lacey
discovers that laughter and love are universal languages.
