James Gardner: Born in a Wheelchair


This event has passed.

James grew up as a carer for his disabled brother Alexander.  From DJing to foiling robberies together, this is a hilarious and heartwarming account of love, laughter and ludicrous experiences with disability.

A regular performer at comedy clubs across Scotland and London – with over 18 million views online – James was one of the most original acts to break through at the Edinburgh Fringe.  Born in a Wheelchair received rave reviews from audiences at multiple sold-out shows, including the likes of Britain’s Got Talent winner (and fellow comedian) Lee Ridley aka Lost Voice Guy and LBC’s Sangita Myska & Australian comic Amos Gil.
