Meet Vikesh

Vikesh is 47 years old – his day job is providing IT support to a large primary school and his night job is stand-up comedian. Vikesh also stutters.

Vikesh describes himself as a tech wizard, stand-up comedian, stutterer and communication advocate.

I walk into a room and people expect the words to come out a certain way because there’s no - unless I’m wearing one of my stuttering t-shirts - there’s nothing that says these words will sound different to what you’re used to.

Vikesh said he tried to hide his stutter for many years. He attended his first stuttering support meeting at the age of 28, which changed his life.
