Just watched Francesca Martinez on Loose Women. She is a fantastic comedienne and she just happens to have Cerebral Palsy.
She`s on tour of the UK and has done 40 ish gigs out of 50 or so.
She has new names for some medical conditions and refers to herself as
wobbly. In her younger days, she had a part in Grange Hill.
Amongst her new names for various illnesses are;
scizophrenic (I cant spell it)…overly imaginative
mentally retarded…Sarah Palin…naughty, I know!
The young man for my neck of the woods, Halifax, who came 2nd on Britain`s Got Talent, Jack, also a great comic, is on Loose Women tomorrow.
Francesca said we should all grab life and never, ever, put ourselves down as
not normal. Plenty of the
normal people cant do some stuff that we can. True!
Dont hide yourselves away and waste your life is something else she said.
