On the back of his BBC Radio 4 series, Ashley Blaker: 6.5 Children is hitting the road in 2022!
The show brings a whole new perspective to the subject of parenting. That is because as parents of six children, Ashley and his wife are trying to raise a family in a world that is only really set up for having two. What is more, the Blakers’ children are not just any kids. Three have special needs – two autistic boys and an adopted girl with Down Syndrome – and Ashley sensitively finds the funny in both raising children with disabilities and adoption.
Ashley Blaker is an internationally acclaimed comedian, seen and heard on TV and radio across the world. He has performed on five continents including tours of the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Israel and Australia.
Following multiple sell out shows throughout the UK, 2018 saw Ashley make both his Off-Broadway and Edinburgh Fringe debut seasons, both receiving acclaim and playing to capacity audiences. In 2020 he returned to New York with ‘Goy Friendly’ which ran at the prestigious SoHo Playhouse.
