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.
Duration: Varies - minimum 20 minutes and maximum 2 hours.
Description: We are a team of comedians who produce stand-up comedy shows in London, at the Edinburgh Fringe and around the UK and sometimes internationally.
People on road: Depends on the work. A typical hour of stand up would be 3 to 4 comedians, a producer and any personal assistants so potentially between 4 and 7 people.
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.
★★★★ The Scotsman’s Kate Copstick
“A uniquely hilarious experience.”
“The entire room rocks with laughter.”
★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘It’s clear the producers know how to pick good acts.’
★★★★ Three Weeks
‘All of the performers have wit, charm and an irreverent attitude toward their disabilities.’
‘This is an excellent night of entertainment, and should be enjoyed by people of all abilities.’
‘There is a risk that PC critics will make patronising allowances in shows like this, but all the acts were good and some exceptional.’
