Launched in 2018 the ‘Disability Progress Awards’ recognise the progress in disability confidence that some of our Recruiters’ Club members have made during the last year.

Entertainment will once again be provided by our favourite entertainers ‘Abnormally Funny People’. The hilarious Tanyalee Davies will be making an appearance again and will be joined by Juliette Burton. Abnormally Funny People are a group of gifted Stand-up Comedians, all of whom are disabled and are very funny people!

MyPlus Recruiters’ Club Platinum members will have 4 complimentary places at the event, Gold members will have 2 complimentary places and Silver members will have 1 complimentary place.

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.

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.
