Newcastle comedian John Smith is a profoundly Deaf BSL user. Following on from his hugely successful, first stand up appearance in 2005, John has moved into bigger and bigger audiences, entertaining in Deaf clubs and theatres countrywide and across Europe, USA and the world. Using his experiences of growing up in a hearing world John brings his observations to life, engaging his audience in hours of laughter and reflection.
Covering topics such as Current Deaf issues, Deaf politics and school life, John offers an amusing and fascinating insight into being Deaf and the world of British Sign Language. He has been on TV programmes such as BBC's ‘See Hear', Ireland's afternoon TV show and ‘Doctors' (BBC1).
