Have you been patronised in a truly 'special' way lately? Do you see the lighter side of having a disability? Or love just having a laugh? Yes? Then get yourself along to this year's Sydney Comedy Festival where we're returning with our Just a Bit...Funny night! Sunday May 3rd!


“There are all these disability clichés about facing challenges, being inspirational and overcoming adversity. Then there is life. The reality of my life is that every conversation I choose to engage in is carefully thought through, and an effort. Every time I go out in public, I have to brace myself to be talked to like I’m not really as intelligent as I am. These examples are only really a snippet of what living in my body is like. I am not inspirational. I’m just trying to live my life the best way I know how, that is, with a good sense of humour, well, a great sense of humour, if you ask me.”
