Comedian Hilariously Mocks People's Poor Reactions to His Disability

One comedian has found a way to bridge the sometimes-awkward social gap between people with and without disabilities: The power of laughter.

Ryan Niemiller was born with a disability in both arms. He’s a self-proclaimed “Cripple Threat of Comedy” and often makes stand-up material out of his disability. His perspective lets him turn awkward encounters into both comedy and a teaching tool for his audience.

In a recently uploaded clip from the TV show “Laughs” (below), Niemiller pokes fun at the inappropriate way some people have handled meeting a person with no arms.

See his hilarious response to these moments in the clip below and follow him on Twitter for more jokes.
