The Comedians with Disabilities Act

Wednesday, March 13 at 4 p.m.

Performed in Sherman Hall

General Admission

Tickets: $25


The Comedians with Disabilities Act is a fabulous collection of comedians who have disabilities, both seen and unseen, and bring forth the humor they find in their experiences. The show is the brainchild of comedian Michael O’Connell, who started the group in 2010, and was later joined by Steve Danner and Nina G, not long after. In 2016, O’Connell sadly passed away - but the show he created lives on, spotlighting a variety of Disabled and outrageously funny comedians. With Michael Beers, Nina G, and Mean Dave. (includes adult content, 18+ unless accompanied by adult).
