“I have cerebral palsy. I shake all the time,” Maysoon Zayid announces at the beginning of this exhilarating, hilarious talk. (Really, it’s hilarious.) “I’m like Shakira meets Muhammad Ali.” With grace and wit, the Arab-American comedian takes us on a whistle-stop tour of her adventures as an actress, stand-up comic, philanthropist and advocate for the disabled.

  1. You are beautiful and funny. So sorry for the internet trolls-if you saw them in person you'd see that they aren't worthy of your time. Keep being an inspiration for all of us.

  2. A beautiful butterfly. She is a sparkler 🧨 and her glimmer shines in our eyes. Thank you for choosing comedy as your profession. We are blessed.

  3. I don't feel sorry for her. She's whining about being "oppressed" because she's Palestinian and Muslim. Probably those bad ole white people. Stupid.

  4. This was the part that I literally born to play but they gave it to non palsy actress.
    This positivity is what all people need !!

  5. Parece mentira, pero Todo todo todo es como la gente enfoque lo que aparentemente es un problema (ojo esto también me lo digo a mi misma) sus padres fueron los que hicieron que ella sea lo que es hoy y obviamente aceptar la guía de sus padres, a regañadientas lo aceptó,

  6. living with 17yo mild cp beautiful daughter (born premature at 26 weeks and less than a kg in weight).. Nur Alia Anniesa please know that daddy love and admire you always.. know your struggles, suffers and pains.. physical and emotional….be strong, be inspired, be as u can can… may Allah ease us for every challenges ahead!

  7. Büyüleyiciydi ve engel insanın zihnindeydi ve o kadar kendisiyle gurur duyan ama aslında hiçbirşey olmayan engelli zihniyetler vardı. Bence bu konuşma çoğu insana örnek olmuştur. Ben engelli bir birey değilim ama önüme koyduğum engelleri hatırlattığı için teşekkürler güzel ve güçlü kadın. 😍💜
