On the opening episode of The Invisible Gift, Andrew Kitley talks to comedian, playwright, and broadcaster, Angie Le Mar. Andrew learns all about Angie’s beginning in comedy, and how dyslexia is directly responsible for her sense of humour. Angie also takes us on a tour of her career, her sell-out one woman shows, why dyslexia has cost her work, and how it led to her writing her own roles. Andrew and Angie also speak about how dyslexia is misunderstood in school, why it really is a gift, and what needs to be done to get the most out of dyslexics.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.

A wide image

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts. The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.

Somebody’s Quote

To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it?
