The Silliest Superest Heroest Podcast
Aaron has real stage presence and never fails to put audiences at ease. An amazing artist, MC and an all round great bloke, Aaron is a staple of at many of our clubs up and down the U.K..
Aaron’s comedic style is story-based, with clever one-liners interspersed throughout. He offers sharply-observed comedy which is grounded in his disability, but is by no means limited by it. Amiable, likeable and with a commanding presence on stage, Aaron is an exciting talent and is destined for great things.
Aaron performed his critically-acclaimed debut show, Disabled Coconut, at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019. It detailed a complicated relationship alongside the absurdity of “competitive disability”. Some people have got the idea, he explains, that because of his upper body strength and background in sport, he is “not disabled enough.
This year (2022) sees Aaron is bringing two shows to the Edinburgh fringe from 3rd - 29th August. He is also touring his latest show across the U.K. Tickets for both shows can be purchased directly through Aaron's website (link above)
