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.
