Nina G bills herself as “The San Francisco Bay Area's Only Female Stuttering Comedian”. Less obvious about this stand-up comedian, social activist, and author, is that she also has a learning disability.
Both Nina G's stutter and her learning disability are subjects in her new one woman show, Going Beyond Inspirational. In a world where people with disabilities are often portrayed solely as being inspirational, or are otherwise presented through the filter of perceptions of people without disabilities, Nina's latest offering is a refreshingly authentic representation. An intensely personal work, Going Beyond Inspirational is based on Nina's own life experiences, with herself as the messenger. And Nina G has a lot to say!
The show covers everything from how Nina struggled in school, to learning from her parents what it means to be an advocate, to finding her voice, both as a woman with disabilities and as a stand up comedian. Going Beyond Inspirational is carefully crafted in a way that validates the disability experience for both the people with and without disabilities.
Going Beyond Inspirational is not Nina G's first foray into delving deeper into the subject of Disability advocacy. In 2014 she published Once Upon an Accommodation: a book about Learning Disabilities. The Second Edition includes a workbook so that people with Learning Disabilities can develop their own voice in terms of advocating for themselves. The idea is that a child can use this book to facilitate a dialogue with a teacher or playmates, and adults can use this book as well when asking for an accommodation for their child.
