It’s okay to laugh at cerebral palsy. This is the message that comedian Maysoon Zayid would like to deliver to the TEDWomen audience. “I’ve got 99 problems and palsy is just one,” she says. “I’m Palestinian, I’m disabled, I’m female and I live in New Jersey.” In a hilarious standup set, Zayid — a co-founder of the Arab-American Comedy Festival — had the audience laughing at tales of the cures her family dreamed up for her disability — dance classes, a dunk in the Dead Sea — and how casting directors have reacted to her, as far back as high school. “People with disabilities are the largest minority in the world and we are the most under-represented in entertainment,” says Zayid. “The doctor said I wouldn’t walk, but I’m here in front of you. If we had more positive images, it might foster less hate on the internet … If I can can, you can can.”
