Below The Belt with Benny Shakes

“The disability 'Taskmaster'!” A hilarious rip-roaring game show with humour for all ages, where kids join in the games and learn about disability!

A panel of comedians attempt tasks set for them by their host Benny Shakes, raising awareness of disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy and Autism.

With co-hosts Kate Lovelock and Mark Nicholas, plus star guests from all across the festival.

The panel get to experience how it feels to have a disability by playing interactive games such as ’Below the Belt’, where panellists (and audiences) draw with their bare feet, ‘Jamie’s Gamey’, working out sentences from a speaking aid, and ‘The Price is Wrong’ where the panel guess the price and purpose of disability equipment. With plenty of prizes for the audience too...
