Critically-acclaimed comedian Ray Bradshaw is currently performing his new show in both spoken English and British Sign Language (BSL) and is the first comic to do so simultaneously.
Having just won a Scottish Comedy Award for Best Show after touring with ‘Deaf Comedy Fam’, don’t miss the chance to see it for yourself in Darlington this month.
The show reveals comical and entertaining tales about growing up with deaf parents, discloses the pranks he has performed over the years and explains less-than-politically-correct translations of his first language, BSL. Reviewers have called it ‘thoroughly engaging’ and ‘captivating’, highlighting that the stories centred on family leave for ‘gentle humour’.
Ray Bradshaw is fast becoming a well-known name on the comedy circuit and has full support from fellow Scots Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle. Bradshaw has twice been a finalist for Scottish Comedian of the Year but this year also took home the Outstanding Achievement Award.
He believes comedy has not been accessible for deaf people, with only a handful of shows including an interpreter out of 3500 stand-up gigs across Scotland last year. Bradshaw is determined to change this and has created a hilarious and uplifting show that is sure to have everyone in fantastic spirits.
Hilarity Bites presents the award-winning show at Old English Gentleman in Darlington on Sunday 23rd September. Tickets, priced at £7.00 in advance, are available from hilaritybites.co.uk or they will be available for £10.00 on the door. Doors open at 19.30, with the show starting at 20.00.
