Shining a Light on Stuttering: How One Man Used Comedy to Turn His Impairment Into Applause
 
(0 reviews)  

Shining a Light on Stuttering – How one man used comedy to turn his impairment into applause is the story of Jaik Campbell, a stand-up comedian notable for his appearances at the internationally renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, the London comedy circuit, and British television.

Jaik’s quest to excel in these highly competitive settings was made all the more difficult by his personal battle with a lifelong stutter. By creatively balancing Jaik’s inspirational story with clearly-presented and current information about stuttering, the authors provide readers with academic, diagnostic, therapeutic, and personal perspectives of this mysterious disorder.

Read what the authors' peers have to say.

-------------------

"The message from Jaik Campbell that stuttering and stand-up can be mutually beneficial is powerful and positive, and an encouragement and inspiration to stutterers and non-stutterers alike."

Michael Palin - Comedian, actor, and writer

-------------------

“What a beautiful book and inspiring collaboration of autobiographer and clinician.Jaik’s life story and development to successful comedian would inspire anyone, especially those who stutter no matter where they are on their own journey.”

Diane Constantino - Director of the Joseph Germono Fluency Center at Boston University

-------------------

“Although Campbell’s story is unique, the impact of stuttering on his life is something every person who stutters will recognize. Those who are struggling with stuttering can learn from his personal journey of coming to terms with himself and taking risks with his speech. Campbell’s narrative will give clinicians insight into the experience of people who stutter, while Williams’ chapters provide a solid background of research findings and clinical expertise.”

James A. McClure - Advisory board member, National Stuttering Association
