Comedian with cerebral palsy hits back against online trolls

Comedian Laurence Clarke, who has cerebral palsy, has turned negative online comments over his fitness to be a parent into a source of material for his latest stand-up routine.

Manchester-born Laurence, who lives in Liverpool, suffered from trolls who saw a TV documentary on him and cast doubts about his ability to be a dad.

The father-of-two now incorporates one-liners from his wise-cracking sons in his stage show to respond to negative social media posts.
