Deborah Brooks is an ASHA certified Speech-Language Pathologist and a Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disorders. She received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2010. In 2012 she received a Master’s of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology. For both undergrad and graduate school, she attended St. John’s University, in Queens. For the past 5 years, Deborah has been working as an SLP in a variety of settings, throughout Brooklyn.
The majority of the time she was attending college and grad school, Deborah worked as a waitress in a comedy club. So, she spent just as much time learning about comedy, as I did learning about speech and language disorders. In 2011 her interest in comedy expanded as she began promoting, producing, and performing on comedy shows.
Today she mostly in the high school and preschool settings which have several striking similarities to life in a comedy club.
