Life with sight loss as a stand-up comic with Markus Birdman

Markus Birdman is a stroke survivor and stand-up comedian. In this session, Markus shares his stand-up comedy with us while telling his story. Note this video does contain some swearing!

Several years ago, Markus had a stroke, and this affected his sight, but he was able to bring this experience into his comedy act. So Marcus is breaking off from his tour, supporting Jason Manford and putting on a show for us!

Markus has been one of Britain’s most travelled stand-up comedians for a few years now, having performed as far afield as Pakistan, Singapore, China, the United Arab Emirates, Austria, Spain, Norway, Sweden and India.

In demand all over the UK and abroad, he is a veteran of the Edinburgh Festival with eleven solo shows to his credit and is a headliner at the UK’s top comedy clubs.
