Speak Adam Simmonds on main hall stage speaking to CLSG and CLS

As part of the City+ series with CLS, we welcomed guest speaker Aaron Simmonds, an award-winning comedian with cerebral palsy.

Aaron performed his critically-acclaimed debut show, Disabled Coconut, at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 which explored his evolving relationship with sport, as a former personal trainer and competitive weight-lifter. At City, Aaron spoke about his career path as a comedian and the ways in which he pushes against his limits. He explains that his comedy is 'grounded in his disability, but is by no means limited by it'.
