The Thirteen Million Club is to be broadcast on Radio 4 this Thursday night, 2nd June. Tune in at 11pm to hear some of the UK's top disabled comedians laughing with and at themselves, as well as at the attitudes of others.
There are more than 13 million people in this country who are classed as disabled, often in ways we can't see. This show promises to celebrate the vast spectrum of mental and physical disability, featuring a spectacular cast who have a wide range of disaiblities.
Harriet Dyer is a bi-polar Cornish comedian, writer and mental health advocate known for her quirky, original and offbeat brand of comedy. Much of her comedy covers her experiences within her mental health journey. The 13 Million Club will feature some of her funniest bi-polar depressive tales - but don't worry she's been making it funny for a long time!
The show is hosted by former Bake Off star Briony May Williams who will bring together a remarkable range of talents including impatient deaf comic Steve Day as well as disability camapaigner Samantha Renke who was born with Brittle Bone Disease. Radio 4 describes the show as "a collection of fresh perspectives in a smorgasbord of stand-up, spiky consumer pieces, interviews and panel-game style battles of wits". It was filmed at the Backyard Comedy Club earlier this month.
Harriet Dyer is available for voiceovers from Anthea Represents. Click her image for her profile page and voiceover showreel.
