Reflections on stuttering and stand up comedy

1-tB0dA_v-GdbrzgVsbYAY9gI recently celebrated my seventh year of doing stand up comedy. Guess what?  I have some stuff to say!  Please take a look and maybe even comment!  Thanks!

“Stories about disabilities usually end with a moral, an inspirational tale of overcoming, something warm and fuzzy for the non-disabled reader. That is not how I view my story. I didn’t overcome my stutter; I simply allowed it to exist. People can think what they want about me, my comedy and, yes, my stuttering. Good or bad, their views give me something to hang my jokes on — jokes that represent me”
