** The Disabled List presents bi-monthly live standup at NWFF! Featured comedians in this edition TBA **
The Disabled List, produced and hosted by local comedians Dan Hurwitz and Kayla Brown, takes place bimonthly at Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, WA.
The Disabled List is a collective of disabled comedians that has been performing in and around Seattle since 2018. In 2021, we produced a short film, the award-eligible This Is Spinal Injury, that debuted at Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings Film Festival and was screened at several other film festivals throughout the state.
This live comedy show features Brown, Hurwitz, and an ever-changing cast of fellow local comedians!
Aug. 2023 Lineup TBA
Kayla Brown (she/her) is a disabled activist and amateur comedian from Seattle. She believes that art and other media forms are a way to break down stereotypes, build community, and transform people’s worlds. When not at work or school, Kayla co-produces the comedy show The Disabled List, plays video games, reads fanfiction, and eats snacks.
Dan Hurwitz is a disabled, Black, and Jewish writer, comedian, and filmmaker. In 2018, he co-founded The Disabled List, an ever-growing group of disabled comedians from the Pacific Northwest. Dan was a semi-finalist in both the Laughs Comedy Competition (2019) and the Stand-Up NBC comedy competition (2019). During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dan co-wrote, co-directed, and co-starred in This Is Spinal Injury (2021), a mockumentary about the trials of disabled artists during quarantine, which premiered at Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings Film Festival in September, 2021.
