Abnormally Funny People

A different line up of comedians performs this show each night; all involved are disabled, apart from one “token” non-disabled performer – the group are keen to demonstrate their inclusivity – and the show includes individual stand-up routines and short improvisation games. All of the performers have wit, charm and an irreverent attitude toward their disabilities. They speak openly about themselves, bringing the audience into a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere from the beginning. Lost Voice Guy dealing with autocorrect on his iPad is especially hilarious, and Caroline Parker’s sign language performance of a ‘Wuthering Heights’ is gloriously eccentric. This is an excellent night of entertainment, and should be enjoyed by people of all abilities.

Stand in the Square, until 30 Aug.
