At his first job as a TV host, Seamus Evans disclosed his Tourette Syndrome. That revelation almost ended his career.

Fortunately Seamus didn’t lose his job. In fact, he spent the next 13 years in his dream career, entertaining his fellow Australians as a TV and radio personality. Now he is an ambassador for Tourette Syndrome Association Australia and a keynote speaker who shares his story to inspire and encourage kids and adults with Tourette’s.

In this episode, Seamus talks about his experience growing up with Tourette’s, how he taught himself to transform his tics (both on and off the air), how his sense of humor helps him in social situations, and why he encourages everyone to embrace their flaws – because in Seamus’ words, “normal is boring.”
