Is Andy Hamilton disabled in some way ?
I see him on Have I Got News For You, and he looks to me like he's in a wheelchair

No, Apparently he was working as an Anthony Warrell Thompson Lookee-Likey and he accidentally got squashed.
But seriously, He is a comedy genius - My favorite radio writer - It's about time they moved his radio comedies "Old Harry's Game" and "Revolting People" to Television

I don't think Television could do them justice, as the old saying goes, I prefer radio, the pictures are better.

Unless you consider shortness to be a disability, Andy Hamilton is not disabled in any way.

He's got a thumb missing on one hand... that's surely a disability, no?

Andy Hamilton is not disabled though he was accidentally squashed. Most of his works pertain to the disabled persons. I admire him because there are many fund raising events that he organized to help disabled people.

Love his writing, especially the brilliant "Underworld" thatw as on Channel 4 in the 90s.

Pity no ones released it on DVD.

Oh, and "Old Harry's Game"
