Ray Bradshaw - Deaf Comedy Fam

13th April to 25 May 2019

1 in 6 people suffer from hearing loss. 2 of those people are Ray’s parents. 

Full of hilarious, revealing tales about growing up with deaf parents, Deaf Comedy Fam presents a very first for comedy, as each show will be performed by Ray simultaneously in both spoken English and British Sign Language – which just so happens to be Ray’s first language.

Two-time Scottish Comedian of the Year finalist Bradshaw debuted Deaf Comedy Fam at Glasgow International Comedy Festival before moving to the Edinburgh Fringe for a critically acclaimed, sold out run. It went on to win the Innovation Award at the Adelaide Fringe 2018 and to be nominated for Best Comedy at Perth Fringe. The show was the worlds’ first comedy show performed in both sign language and English by the performer, and allowed hundreds of deaf people to come to a comedy show for the first time. Don’t miss the first ever comedy set to be spoken and signed by the comic themselves!

Winner - Adelaide Fringe Weekly Innovation Award 2018.
Winner - Scottish Culture Award 2018
Winner – Scottish Comedy Award 2018 , Best Show & Outstanding Achievement

All shows are fully accessible for BSL users. 14+ age guideline
