Comedian reveals how losing hearing helped inspire new act

Most comedians live for the sound of making an audience roar with laughter, so imagine stepping on to the stage without being able to hear a thing. That's a daily reality for Martha McBrier, who lost her hearing in the early stages of her stand-up career. But far from putting the award-winning comic off, becoming deaf inspired her new act - Which opens in London this week.

The 'Pidgeon Puncher' is at The Museum of Comedy on Wednesday 13th April 2016.
