Deaf Comic: Tattooed Back

Posted in cartoon, Deaf by Robs on August 10, 2008

One of Deaf artist Matt Daigle’s cartoons is amazing. It is about someone not knowing you are deaf and talking behind you at a gym locker room. The best solution is that a tattooed message on your back. The cartoon is very funny! See below…

For further information, please visit Matt Daigle’s blog: That Deaf Cartoonist. Matt’s cartoons are deaf-related humor and generic humor.

I received Garrett “G the STAR” Bose’s recent video clip “How Every Horoscope Sign is Stupid!” through email from one of my friends. I saw the video clip that Garrett mocked interesting perspectives on the horoscope. That’s hilarious! I decided to post Garrett’s video clip on my blog. I bet it will make you laughing… See for yourself!

Film entitled: Four Deaf Yorkshiremen

Posted in Deaf Cinema, film by Robs on August 7, 2008

I enjoyed watching this film because it is very funny. The film is about deaf men who challenge each other to tell their worst stories. I never thought of the ending, and I laughed out loud at the ending. I like the ending. The plot is excellent. This short film is 10 minutes long.

I bought the special edition DVD “Four Deaf Yorkshiremen” includes extra features, and I also got the two glossy photos of the “Four Deaf Yorkshiremen.”

You can buy the DVD, and see “Four Deaf Yorkshiremen” in full quality, just contact Charlie Swinbourne at for more information! The DVD sale is raising money for the second film “The Return of the Four Deaf Yorkshiremen.”

I’m looking forward to watch the second film.

Cast: John Smith, Ilan Dwek, Matthew Kirby, Jonathan Reid

Synopsis: How hard was growing up deaf? In this short film, four old deaf men try to tell the worst story about their childhood – and there’s ten pounds on the table for the ‘winner!’

The film was inspired by the classic “Four Yorkshiremen” sketch made famous by Monty Python, but with a new script for a deaf cast.
