Deaf comedian D.J. Demers shares his experiences with hearing loss

“Demers, along with a few audience members, wore hearing aids. As part of his “Here to Hear” tour, Demers is visiting 20 colleges and universities across the United States to perform and talk about his experiences with hearing loss.”

DJ Demers’ one-hour comedy special, “Indistinct Chatter”, is now available to stream.
“Demers discussed a broad range of topics, he often brought up his experiences with hearing loss, such as how he couldn’t hear when he took his aids out at night. He also made an effort to get to know many of the audience members’ names, and he periodically checked on the hard-of-hearing audience members.”

 

Daniel Franzese’s Comedy Tour Hits MNSU

“The comedy act was a success from beginning to end. [Daniel] jokes about his experiences as a gay man. Along with being gay, his Italian roots is a big part of his life which he jokes about often in his set. He also did a Q&A where students asked a range of questions from awkward sex scenes, to coming out in college, to his experiences in the behind the scenes of Mean Girls.”

“Franzese’s show was a hit with the campus, sponsored by the LGBT Center, and not only shed light on the hilariousness and fabulousness of being gay, but also brought diversity and the importance of having an event like this on campus.”
