‘Consistently hilarious’ ***** Ed Fest
‘Not afraid to milk his disability’ ***** Broadway Baby
‘Pure wit and confidence’ **** Skinny
‘One of the funniest Scots on the circuit’ **** Sunday Herald
This is foot to the floor comedy courtesy of Jamie Macdonald, that funny blind guy. Irreverent, hilarious stories from the Glaswegian you don't want driving you home. The master storyteller has uncovered a conspiracy about humiliating products for the blind. It's topical humour with a disabled slant. Charming, disarming, eye-opening comedy.
Jamie MacDonald is a Glaswegian stand-up comedian who just happens to be blind. MacDonald’s blindness flavours his comedy but doesn’t define it. That said, he has found that being blind allows him to extract comedy from lesser explored areas; like the jealousy he feels towards laboratory mice with 20/20 vision and the humiliating range of clothing and accessories sold by the RNIB. Jamie is nothing if not a believer in diversity, meaning Designated Driver can be enjoyed by Blinkies (blind people), Wheelies (people in wheel chairs) and Normos (people with no disability) alike
