I'm a comedian that started doing stand up while deployed in Afghanistan and now I'm recording my debut album to help fight veteran suicide. Ask Me Anything!
My name is Pete Stegemeyer and I am an army veteran that started doing stand up comedy in Afghanistan. A lot of my comedy focuses on my time in the army, and with my journey to get treatment for my PTSD after I got out. I've had a lot of people come up to me after shows to tell me about the issues they're facing and how they can get help now that they know they have mental health challenges, so I'm hoping that making an album available everywhere might help more people and destigmatize asking for help.
I'm recording my debut album, "Pete-T.S.D." at Stand Up NY on November 10 at 7pm with an all veteran lineup and will be donating 100% of ticket sale proceeds and album sales to the HeadStrong Project, which helps veterans get lined up with free mental health providers.
Ask me anything!
Proof: Here's my proof!
