In this episode, Emma talks to Tom Skelton who is a visually impaired stand-up comedian. Tom discusses his career as a stand-up and how in 2009 he started to lose some of his sight due to a hereditary eye condition. Tom has performed multiple times in Edinburgh at the Fringe festival both before losing his sight and afterwards.


Tom talks candidly about how much his visual impairment affects his comedy, losing his vision whilst at university and also what advice he might give to someone else going through a similar life changing situation.


This episode was recorded remotely in early August 2020.
