Joke for Scope 2019 in Manchester

Sam_Alumni Scope alumni Posts: 7,674 Disability Gamechanger

Joke for Scope is a night of stand up comedy featuring a line up of disabled and non-disabled comedians. The event acts as a stage to amplify the voices of disabled people and help to break down barriers.

One in 5 of us is disabled, but the gap between disabled and non-disabled people is real and it's growing. Disabled people still remain hugely underrepresented in the media, on stage and in the public eye. This means that often, their ambitions potential and talent goes unrecognised due to unnecessary barriers and negative attitudes. Together, we can change that.

We know that humour can break down barriers and bring people together. If you share our vision of equality for disabled people, join us for an evening of comedy, and we'll help change attitudes and end injustice together.
