Winner of the 2023 "Best Feature" at the Conquering Disabilities with Film International Film Festival


In his world premiere, one-man show “Clowns Like Me,” Sarasota actor and storyteller Scott Ehrenpreis tells his humorous yet profound story of living with mental illness. “Clowns Like Me” reveals the fascinating, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting true story of Scott’s personal journey as he struggles against OCD, bipolar disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, social anxiety and depression. Ultimately, Scott discovers that being on stage gives him the power, even for just a couple hours, to step into the light and leave the shadows of his mental health struggles behind. Audiences are in for a show that will make them laugh, cry and leave thinking differently about the stigmas tied to mental health.

Grow Your Vision

Storytelling is how we move from where we where we are now... and where we’re going. Storytelling is how we heal, how we validate, how we inform, how we connect, and how we make sense of the senselessness of the world. Stories don’t have to focus merely on trauma and suffering. By telling stories of healing and evolution, we redeem our suffering. When stories are told by those who suffer about how their lives have evolved and changed, the hopeless find their hope. The lonely find camaraderie. And the lost find their way home.
