ASHLEY BLAKER: NORMAL SCHMORMAL
The star of BBC Radio 4’s hit comedy 6.5 Children takes to the road in a new stand-up show, based on the best-selling book of the same name, about the joys of raising children with special needs. Between endless meetings, countless therapists, public humiliations, failed playdates, surreal monologues and occasional violence, it’s certainly not what anyone would call a ‘normal’ household – but would Ashley want it any other way?
Ashley Blaker is an acclaimed stand-up comedian, writer and producer. He has played sell out residencies in London, on Broadway, and at the Edinburgh Festival, as well as touring in the UK and worldwide including the USA, Canada, and Australia.
