Disability and Comedy
This past August, I started working at a comedy club in the ticket booth. I met a lot of comedians that have a range of humor. For many of them, I am the first wheelchair user/ disabled person they have ever been around. Some of them use language talking about people with disabilities that I find offensive, but it seems to be different in the comedy world.
Have you ever been offended by someone’s comedy, whether about you or disability in general? Do you think a comedian doesn’t have to use derogatory terms to make people laugh? Have you ever thought of doing comedy, such as stand-up or an open mic? A lot of people use humor to cope with their diseases and ailments.
