Disability, it’s a joke, for some

Tim Ferguson and I had a funny chat, to be expected, as he is a professional comedian. (From his website cheekymonkeycomedy.com) Tim is a widely acclaimed comedian, writer and producer. He’s toured the world performing stand-up and musical comedy, co-writing dozens of live stage comedy shows and light entertainment programmes. What made this conversation meaningful for me was that we spoke heart to heart as two people with disabilities and how we use humour when we interact with the rest of the world. Tim has multiple sclerosis and I’ve had a physical disability since birth. A lot of the discussion was also focused on what is humour and does it really matter if it offends others?
