BATHURST'S Angus Thompson will star in a new series that will again use humour to shine a light on disability.
Mr Thompson, who has Cerebral Palsy, won ABC's Regional Storyteller Scholarship, which has enabled him to create a new comedy web series, called Terrible Pauly.

The titular character has Cerebral Palsy and reviews household products to see how accessible they are for someone with a disability.
It's not the first time Thompson has created content for ABC, after starring in The Angus Project in 2018.
It was Mr Thompson's mentor, Craig Anderson, who saw the scholarship and encouraged him to apply.
He had to come up with an idea for a show, which was successfully chosen.
"Over the years I've found myself flicking through stations on TV and coming across home shopping channels," Mr Thompson said.
"While watching presenters introduce and demonstrate each product, I've found myself thinking 'This product was not designed for someone like me in mind. I wonder how it would look if I tried to use it?'.
"In Terrible Pauly, my character tests everyday products an able bodied person would use without even thinking, to see how effective it is for someone with a disability."
He is staying tight-lipped on how it all goes, but Mr Thompson did say the results were "consistently terrible".
In some ways, there is a hidden message in the show for companies.
"You may need to have a certain sense of humour to enjoy this show, but overall I hope to bring to light in a comedic way, that it would be fantastic if companies put a little more thought into accessibility and the disabled community when designing future products," Mr Thompson said.

The first episode of Terrible Pauly will become available on ABC's YouTube channel on Thursday, with new episodes released weekly.
Mr Thompson is hopeful he will be able to keep producing new series as perceptions about people with disabilities continue to change.
"The entertainment industry is making great strides in disability representation. I encourage them to keep up the great work and continue to make shows with a disabled actor in a main role," he said.
"Depending on how everyone takes Terrible Pauly (this might be the end for me), I hope to continue making more series and continue to push people's perceptions of the disabled community."
