purveyors of quality Deaf comedy are the people behind the Deaf Comedy movies The Association and Text, Batteries & Earwax. Both movies aim for good, old fashioned laughs while giving a glimpse into the world of Deaf people today.

Text, Batteries and Earwax has acquired legendary status in the Deaf community for showing Deaf - and partially hearing - people as they really are.

TB&E has played at film festivals around the world and is now released on DVD, along with The Association.

The Association reunites the lead cast of the original film. The slick comedy takes place over a day in the life of a Deaf workplace.

The films are ideal for those learning BSL - they show British Sign Language in its natural setting, while introducing the viewer to Deaf humour.

The DVD includes

  • Full films with subtitles (20 mins running time each)
  • Cast profiles
  • Trivia titbits from both films
  • another Deaf movie (look for the special link!)
