The trio of Eric Mee (sight-impaired), Steve Danner (little person) and Michael O'Connell (wheelchair) will be rocking the Bay for one night only, joined by special guest Nina G, San Francisco's renowned stuttering comedienne, and producer/host Keith Lowell Jensen of the heralded "Coexist? Comedy Tour". Covered in print (The Sacramento Bee), on radio (Capital Public Radio's "Insight") and on television (CW31's Good Day Sacramento), the comedy group is about to storm the San Francisco media, and plans to drop another standing-room-only performance on the California comedy world.
"There's a big difference between laughing at someone with a disability and laughing with them," says O'Connell, the show's headliner. "We have a great time poking fun at our disabilities, at ourselves, at the absurd and hilarious things that happen to us in our lives. And even at each other. And we invite the audience in on the joke with us. While we're there to make people laugh, we also give the crowd a chance to look inside our worlds and learn a few things they wouldn't have otherwise known. There are a lot of things people don't know about disabilities just because they don't happen to know anyone with a disability. After our show, they feel like they do."
Tickets are on sale through LiveNation or half-priced through Goldstar. While tickets are also available at the box office, advance purchase is recommended.
