Comedian Chris Cotton
Philly comedian Chris Cotton from Philly’s very popular comedy group, Center City Comedy, is always kind enough to send me over an article on whatever happens to be on his mind at the time, and this one is no different. Some of you who personally know Chris may know that he is dyslexic. I myself have only recently found this out when he told me about the article he was going to send me. But when I think about it, the scrambled text messages I usually receive from him are now starting to make sense. Until recently, I just thought he had a drinking problem.
Anyway, Chris had sent me a short essay on what it’s like to be dyslexic, and being that I don’t (think) I know anyone with dyslexia, who better than a comedian to explain it to me? Take note that what he sent me was not edited by myself or Chris.

I’m Dyslexic, But I Rise!
When I tell my joke about being dyslexic, people tend to ask if I really dyslexic. Your suppose to lie about having money or big a penis, not being dyslexic. Yeah, I’m dyslexic, to truly illustrate this fact I will not be edit this article. I also won’t writing a long article, because I can only handle so much snickering and complaining.
Dyslexia is a weak disease, in the sense it affects you everyday life, but enough to get better parking. Dyslexia won’t even get you in the special olympics but the selection committee will laugh at your application. Dyslexics are definitely creators of program such as spell correctors, spell check, dictionaries and thesaurus’s. In closing, I’m sorry if tryin to read this gives you a headache.
