Abnormally Funny People

Abnormally Funny People are a team of comedians, mostly with disabilities although we often have a token non-disabled comedian too. We perform stand up comedy shows in London, at the Edinburgh Fringe and around the UK and sometimes internationally.

We are primarily about making people laugh. Sometimes there’s a message but that’s a bonus not the primary aim.

Wrap-around work

We can provide training on disability as a supplement to the stand up comedy or instead off it. We often have a Q&A session and an opening educational bit in our shows for corporates or universities. We runs comedy development days where individuals can try out material and we help them develop as comedians.
