My short bio:
My name is Ally Bruener and I'm a 24 year old stand-up comedian with Muscular Dystrophy. I've been fully wheelchair bound since the age of 7, which jump-started my love for public speaking with various charity events. I started comedy after dropping out of college in 2010 and have been consistently performing around the Midwest since. I use my comedy as an attempt to open the doors for conversations about things that are often considered taboo and to (hopefully) break down the stereotypes about people with disabilities. Also, I just love making stranger laugh, regardless of subject matter. I'm no stranger to controversy, so... Ask me anything!
My Proof: Proof will be on both twitter and my facebook page:
I'll start answering question around 1:30pm EST.
P.S. If I had a dollar for every time someone thinks they're clever by saying, "Stand up comedy? Don't you mean sit down comedy?" then I'd actually be able to make a living doing comedy.
Update: I'm headed to bed, but if y'all have more questions, I'll be back tomorrow! Also, thanks to everyone for all the kind words!
Update #2: Good morning!
