Event Comedy night

We believe that the power of comedy can help break down barriers that disabled people face by challenging negative attitudes and misconceptions, while showcasing disability in a positive way. If you share our vision of equality for disabled people, join us for an evening of comedy in Islington, and we'll help change attitudes and end injustice together.
