Organisers said: ‘Stepping over his cerebral palsy like it’s the mildest of inconveniences, Ricky pulls his audience into a joyfully dark world of self-deprecating hilarity. A brilliant joke-smith and storyteller, this young man has comedy greatness in his bones.’

Support on the night will come from Hollie Noble, George Coppen, Colin Etches and Bazza Moden.

Who are Disabled Cants

Disabled Cants is a comedy show that was started by Steve Day in 2022 for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Keen to platform disabled performers, Steve has overseen the show that has grown over the years to create a safe, welcome space that organisers say is a ‘raucous and joyous celebration of disabled identity.’
