Synopsis
Not many stand-up comedians are openly gay, and fewer still are handicapped, but comic Greg Walloch just so happens to be both, and he's developed a growing cult following for his act, in which he pokes politically incorrect fun at his sexual preferences, his physical condition, and how society and the world around him reacts to both. F**k The Disabled (which is meant not as an epithet, but a polite request) is a documentary about Greg Walloch, in which he discusses his life and career while also sharing highlights from his nightclub act. F**k The Disabled also includes interviews with a number of Greg's admirers, including Stephen Baldwin, Jerry Stiller, Anne Meara, and Michael Musto. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

I really don't have much to criticize about this documentary/performance piece of Greg Walloch. He doesn't ask nor does he want mine or anyone's sympathy. What he wants is to make you laugh, think and forget about your problems. He uses his disability not as a crutch but more of a prop. He's not angry at anybody, quite frankly he's the most sincere person I've ever seen photographed.

"Fuck The Disabled" appears to be an offensive title, it's not. It's the "Tao Of Greg Walloch". The man isn't challenged, he's a normal, everyday human being with an intense sense of creativity and an amazing outlook on the world. He lives for the day and not the future. He laughs off the people who comment "I admire you for going up there". He just wants you to watch his art form for what it is, a gay man living in America with some pretty wild observations on what other people take so seriously.

Honestly? He's not the one with the problems, we are. When this guy gets up in the morning, he's smiling. He loves his life and he lives in East Harlem! He chose to live there, he took yet another stereotype and stepped on it. He admits to a few scary moments, one of which includes viewing some blood and "organic" material splattered in or around his apartment building; but he over-looks it. It's a part of every day life.

He even loses his patience when he has to wait for a handicapped person to get on the bus. When he's down he gets himself a piece of cake and it makes it all worth while.

Greg is actually a man many of us wish we could be. A part of me wouldn't mind being in his shoes. Quite frankly his one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen, even if he weren't handicapped he'd make you fall in love with him. Gay or straight. That's the way he is.

What the documentary features are glimpses into Greg's life, interviews, dialogue's from both his stand up and one man shows (which are both the same) little celebrity appearances performing in very brief little snippets of Greg's view on gay men, being a waiter and having brunch with a friend.

His interviews are candid as they are interesting. His show is thought provoking as it is hilarious.

You want to be accepted? Watch "F**K THE DISABLED", Greg surely puts life into perspective, he's not a man with cerebral palsy entertaining people for a laugh, he's a bowl of chicken soup and he knows how to cure what's bugging ya'.

Check this one out, you won't regret it.

Holy cow, what a good film. Like the best artists of any genre, Walloch takes the raw materials of his life--joy and pain, triumph and humiliation, physical and emotional frailties--and crafts them into an expression that is profound, sympathetic, and rigorously honest.

You will laugh a lot in the course of viewing this film. You will also watch a lot of it with your mouth hanging open.
