About The Comedians
A blind man. A woman who stutters. A wheelchair user. A Little Person. While this may sound like a description of a support group, it is, in fact, the lineup for the "Comedians with Disabilities Act", a comedy troupe that the San Francisco Examiner called "the most unconventional comics to pop up in 2011." Made up entirely of performers with different disabilities, the troupe brings their "special" brand of humor to audiances throughout the Bay Area.
