Growing up Crippled means that on a daily basis you are faced with ignorant statements and ignorant expectations. Sarcasm and wit are the only ways I know how to disarm that ignorance. My family has also influenced my humor. They taught me not to take life too seriously and to follow what makes me truly happy. Since I can remember I felt most comfortable being the center of attention. In 2014 I began to do stand-up comedy. And right away I was addicted. Stand-up comedy combines my passion for performance and my need to make strangers laugh at the absurd moments in my life. Since 2014 I have honed my ability to deliver a joke and to adapt to any situation onstage. I’ve traveled across the country, been in many festivals and been fortunate enough for one of my videos to reach almost 2 million people.
