A STAND-UP comedy show with the tongue-in-cheek message that ‘not all disabled people are heroes’ will see a Barnsley comedian joined by a Britain’s Got Talent star.

ImPairment was created by 29-year-old Pete Selwood, who was born with syndactyly fused digits on one of his hands and Jack Carroll whose wisecracks about his cerebral palsy led him to the final of the reality TV show as a teenager.

The pair will perform the show at Barnsley College’s Electric Theatre, off Eastgate, and Pete said it will have students involved wherever possible.

“It will be filmed by college students,” said Pete, of Wentworth Road, Penistone.

“So it’s a bit of a project for them as well. We’re trying to make it useful and hopefully inspire the kids in some way.

“We’re also doing a question-and-answer session for drama students.

“The space is amazing for the content of the show as well, it really fits what we’re doing.”

ImPairment comes to the Electric Theatre on Friday, January 31.
