Wednesday 9th May 6.00pm -8.30pm
Hosted by Baker Mckenzie
Launched in 2017 our Recruiters’ Club Annual Reception provides an opportunity for our members, sponsors and network of businesses and individuals associated with disability to come together for drinks, canapes and discussions.
Themed ‘A Celebration of Success’ this year we will be recognising examples of progress that has been made over the last year by some of our members in the disability space. There will also be the opportunity to hear the latest news and developments from MyPlus.
Entertainment will again be provided by Abnormally Funny People, however by 2 different but equally entertaining comedians, Tanyalee Davies and Don Biswas. Abnormally Funny People are a group of gifted Stand-up Comedians, all of whom are disabled and are very funny people!
This event is by invitation only.
Abnormally Funny People
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.
A master of physical punctuation. — The Las Vegas Sun
Tanyalee Davis is “The Ferrari of Comedy” – low to the ground and kind of racy. Her perception of people and how they perceive her, exaggerates the humour of life's 'little' tasks and routines. Canadian born, Tanyalee currently is making the stage her home by touring all over the world bringing the funny. Tanyalee had a successful 6 month contract performing “Little Comedian, BIG Laughs” just off the Las Vegas Strip. Tanyalee has been part of Abnormally Funny People since its inception in 2005. In 2007 she premiered her first one woman show called “Little Do They Know” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where she received 4 star reviews, and has numerous television and film credits to her name.
A phenomenal gag teller with an engaging stage persona - Hecklers Comedy Club.
Don's unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners, with humour about having Dyspraxia (organization and coordination difficulties) and mild traits of Asperger's Syndrome, and the effect it has on people, while coming from a middle class Indian family. Also thrown into the mix are quirky observational, political and topical humour.
He was winner of the London New Comedy Award in 2010, Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year finalist in 2010, twice the winner of the Comedy Store's King Gong show, and 6 times winner of the Comedy Cafe's New Act Night.
