<p>"If you've ever seen the movie 'Forrest Gump', my mom was kind of like Forrest's mom." Andy was born with cerebral palsy in 1979, but his mom made sure he had the same opportunities as a child without disabilities. In the 1980s, Andy was mainstreamed into school in the first grade. After graduating high school in 1988, Andy attended Vincennes University. He changed majors a few times before landing in the technology field.</p><p>In 2005, Andy got his start in comedy. He went to a comedy club and tried his hand at the open mic. He discovered he was good at making people laugh. Now, Andy gets bookings at comedy clubs around Indiana. Andy says, “Just because I have a disability doesn’t mean I can’t be funny, you know.” Andy was interviewed in 2016.</p><p><a style="font-size: 1em;" href="" target="_top">Read Andy Imlay interview transcript.</a></p>
