Sean Turner, alternative stand-up comedian, is returning to the Edinburgh Fringe for his second solo Fringe show. Comedy With a Colour-Blind Dyslexic Geordie is a mad hour of stand-up comedy. Full of silly impressions, audience interaction and jokes and stories. Oh and stuff about dyslexia and colour-blindness as well. It's a combination of the best bits from my last show and new stuff I wrote but didn't spell correctly. If you missed last year's show, come see this one, it's all new material.

Comedy With a Colour-Blind Dyslexic Geordie is a mad hour of stand-up comedy its full of silly impressions, audience interaction, jokes and stories. Oh and stuff about dyslexia and colour-blindness as well.
Alternative stand-up comedian Sean Turner has had dyslexia since before he was born. He knows this because the day he came into this world his mother put a Catherine Cookson novel in his face and he didn't have a clue how to read it. Realising this his parents bought him a book where no words instead it was filled with colours. If you look at the pages Sean you see lovely pictures of dolphins boats and a lovely bear. Sean's book was broken as he could see naff all, later he found out it wasn't the book but his eye balls that were faulty.
The show's called Comedy with a colourblind Dyslexic Geordie, because he's a coulourblind Dyslexic Geordie that does comedy so he amalgamated the three words and came up with the title.
School was a hard time for me in fact it was a right pisser because I couldn't read and write as well as the other kids. It was like going to a car swapping party on a BMX. It's all different now of course. I do still sometimes have problems with my speeling. I've also just noticed that I've wrote most of this press release in the third person but I'm leaving like that because I can't be bothered to go back and change it.
If you like something different, for example Vic & Bob, or Rick & Ade, then this is the show for you.
