To mark the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Norton Rose Fulbright and their disability network Shine, are delighted to host a comedy night with Abnormally Funny People, a group of gifted stand-up comedians strutting their funny stuff. They are all very funny people who use comedy to normalise the conversation around disability.

Simon Minty, Abnormally Funny People producer and disability and diversity consultant, will open with a short session about disability confidence.

He will be followed by two very talented acts (warning, these acts may occasionally use strong language some might find offensive).

  • Steve Day, a truly unique comedian; witty and engaging whilst dealing with the dilemmas of being a deaf man in a hearing world
  • Jess Thom, an artist and playworker who was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome in her twenties; with some encouragement from her friends, Jess decided to turn her tics into a source of imaginative creativity and the Touretteshero project was born.

We will close the evening with drinks, canapés and networking.

Limited spaces available, allocated on a first come first served basis.
