Abnormally Funny People is a group of gifted stand-up comedians strutting their funny stuff. Some sit down and stand-up, others stand on chairs and stand-up, others simply stand up and stand-up. They are all funny people.


Each show features a line-up of talented, award winning, disabled comedians with a token non-disabled one (you've got to give them a chance). The comedians take great delight in banter about one another and not holding back about themselves.


As a collective, Abnormally Funny People started performing in August 2005 at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Since then, Abnormally Funny People has earned their way through four runs at the Soho Theatre, including a special 2012 Paralympics Show, numerous corporate and university gigs, and a return to Edinburgh in 2015.


We are currently accepting bookings for performances at venues around the country as well as corporate shows and private events. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
