Comedian Elise Lehman Finds Humour in Her Disability

The small coastal town of Robe in South Australia is home to comedian, Elise Lehman.

Elise uses her unique sense of humour to make people feel at ease about her disability.

The 31-year-old lost her eyesight at the age of two to a brain tumour and has no memories of sight. 

Speaking with Hughesy and Tommy, Elise spoke about what made her get into stand-up comedy; “When I was a kid I was always quick witted and a smart arse.”

Elise came to the attention of Hughesy after seeing her on the ABC program Backroads.
