Maysoon Zayid doesn't aim to inspire you
Maysoon Zayid jokes that she has 99 problems, and cerebral palsy's just one. The pioneering Muslim-American comic uses humour as a way to connect audiences with the experience of people like her — people perceived as different.
She joins Shad to discuss her witty defiance of social limits and conventions, how she handles online haters (hint: "mock him and block him") and why she believes only people with disabilities should play disabled characters on TV and in the movies.
