What’s the show?

A hilarious solo comedy show about dating with a disability with a similar vibe to Mike Birbiglia and Hannah Gadsby!

Full description:

Dating’s tough enough, but try dating when it’s also hard to walk. For years, Jack stumbled through life and relationships without much direction or balance (literally). In this hilarious one-man show, Jack tries to figure out how to date with lots of heart and even more limp.
