“Benny Shakes is a powerhouse of ‘funny’ built on a foundation of clever joke writing, from the daily struggles of living with a disability to he’s observations on red neck life. Benny is a relatableand affable comic who ‘raises the roof’ every time.” – Anthony Williams, Rocks Central Promotions He is booked to do several fringes around England in 2021
Art and culture are really important. Words can tell the story, but a photo is like using a hundred
words. I have cerebral palsy and enjoy taking shaky photos, images that work in harmony with my disability
“The disability ‘Taskmaster’!” A hilarious rip-roaring game show with humor
for all ages, where kids join in the games and learn about disability!
Two teams of three, a mix of disabled and non-disabled comedians attempt tasks
set for them by their host Benny Shakes, raising awareness of disabilities
So we set up a live video cast which will air once a fortnight on Benny Shakes Things Up social media pages where we will be interviewing a variety of disabled comedians to show the world that disable people do deserve the respect of othershttps://www.facebook.com/BennyShakesThingsUp
At the start of the lockdown, I was told that because of my disability I had to stay in and not see
anyone. It was hard. I felt as if I was being put in prison and was being punished. That’s how I felt. I
felt alone. There was no point to anything, and mentally I really went downhill. After a few weeks my
friends heard how bad I was, they wanted to help. Jagdish and Alyn contacted me and we started the
online photography group.
After this I started an online group for disabled comedians, for no real purpose but to talk and meet
so we would less lonely. People really liked it.
