Tonic Comic

Tonic Comic

My name is Juliet and I have epilepsy – waits for supportive round of applause from others in the help group... No? Oh, ok.

In one of my guises as a stand-up comic, I explain to audiences that I have tonic clonic epilepsy, and that I affectionately refer to my seizures as ‘gin and tonic colonics’ because of how they make me feel afterwards...

Juliet doesn't just stand up for epilepsy on stage. Epilepsy Society's members benefit from her fresh and funny column in our magazine Epilepsy Review.
