Jamie MacDonald

Jamie MacDonald is a Glaswegian stand-up comedian, writer and voiceover artist, who is also blind

MacDonald’s blindness flavours his comedy but doesn’t define it. That said, he has found that his disability allows him to extract comedy from lesser explored areas; like the jealousy he feels towards laboratory mice with 20/20 vision.
