Since 2010 Mike Berkson and Tim Wambach have toured the United States with Handicap This!, a two man stage show with a message of tolerance and inclusion. Mike is a quadriplegic with cerebral palsy; Tim has served as Mike’s aide for over 14 years. The pair have captivated and motivated educators and students with their motto: “Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.” A recent NEWSDAY article states, “At a time when bullying is under increased scrutiny, Handicap This! brought a dimly lit auditorium of 9th-, 10th-, 11th-graders from a sympathetic quiet to laughter and applause of encouragement, all while sharing a message of acceptance, understanding, and tolerance.”
