Making a special appearance in Comedy on Wheels is UK-based, Canadian-born comic Tanyalee Davis. At 3'6", Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy - low to the ground and kind of racy!

Tanyalee is a member of the Abnormally Funny People ensemble, performing throughout the United Kingdom, as well as a writer and star of the Channel 4 series, "I'm Spazticus.

A shared laugh strengthens our bonds and dissolves barriers, says producer and Realwheels Managing Artistic Director, Rena Cohen. Comedy on Wheels will entertain and surprise you with its novel perspective. Prepare to laugh away some of your preconceptions!
