There’s Comedy (even) in Crohn’s Disease


Recently, we were lucky enough to spend some quality time in the company of Courtney Hodgkiss. She’s a writer, journalist and wannabe-comic who has an in-depth knowledge of the music and comedy industries, having worked in both.

Courtney is witty, bright and savvy; she also self-identifies as disabled, battling a chronic form of Crohn’s disease. But not only does her condition not stop the pursuit of Courtney’s goals, she has turned it into the impetus for a comedy career – and the butt of her jokes!

This is a conversation with an inspirational person, and one who has impeccable taste in comedy. Courtney takes us through a smorgasbord of modern comedians – offering something for everyone.
