Watch: Stand-up comedy from Deaf comedian Ace Mahbaz

Posted on March 7, 2017

Ace Mahbaz, who is a very talented all-round Deaf performer, has released a brilliant clip of stand up comedy, called ‘Cat Doesn’t Meow,’ in sign language with subtitles, which has gone viral, attracting nearly 180,000 views to date.

Mahbaz is perhaps best known in this country for co-creating, co-writing and co-starring (with Brian Duffy) in the BSL Zone comedy series Small World. His clip discusses lipreading, sign language, and cats.
