The Comedians with Disabilities Act (CDA), a comedy troupe made up all disabled comics, who after their first sold-out show got booked in such famed venues as San Francisco’s Punch Line and the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, are in Buffalo tonight for a one-time performance.
“Lots of able-bodied comedians out there tell blind or wheelchair jokes and get the audience to laugh AT people with disabilities,” said Michael O’Connell, the group’s wheelchair representative and founder of the troupe. “But wouldn’t it be more fun for the crowd, we thought, to be invited to laugh WITH people with disabilities instead?
