I noticed recently that there are now two or three young, male comedians with cerebral palsy doing the rounds. Lost Voice GuyLee Ridley is one, and there is a chap called Ted Shiress I have an eye on, who is very up-and-coming. Both men occupy a similar niche of ''man with cp describing things from his perspective'', so it seems to me that this style of comedy is very much opening up. There are one or two more guys out there, doing similar things, such as Jack Carroll, who was on tv last night, rolator and all. It's great to see, to be honest: disabled people coming up, telling there side of the story. In a way it isn't dissimilar to what I try to do on my blog, only they do it with a lot more humour, skill and wit. It's exactly what we need these days, with disabled people becoming increasingly marginalised. Perhaps the best thing about this phenomenon is that these comedians are not combative: humour makes what they have to say more accessible, which means it is more likely to be engaged with.
