Following his groundbreaking 2018 show, Deaf Comedy Fam, Ray Bradshaw's new stand-up show, Deaf Com 1, covers his recent fatherhood, teaching his young son sign language and a disastrous trip to Bahrain!

International award-winning comic, Ray, spent 2021/22 touring the UK as John Bishop's handpicked support act, having previously toured with Frankie Boyle in 2019.  Ray was the first comedian to ever win a Scottish Culture Award and is a regular host of Scotland's most popular radio show, Breaking The News.

Ray is a CODA (like in the Oscar winning film) and grew up with deaf parents. All of his shows are performed in both BSL and English, with Deaf Comedy Fam becoming the first ever live comedy experience for more than 800 deaf audience members.

Ray's clever, charming and very funny comedy has received critical acclaim from critics and fans alike.
