Comedian shows hilarious thing he can do with his ‘lazy eye’ after having muscle added from his leg

A comedian was left with a hilarious side effect after doctors decided to transplant a muscle from his leg into his face in a bid to fix his lazy eye.
The bloke, Adam Rowe, was born with a muscle weakness on the left side of his face meaning his left eyelid didn't work in the same way as his right one.
Clearly seeing humour in the ordeal, Adam has since mastered a particularly bizarre party trick that totally stunned audience members. Make sure you watch until the end:
He went on to explain he was born with a lazy eye leaving his left eyelid 'droops lower' then his right one.
"When I was a kid people used to call me names and eventually, my mum sat me down to have the anti-bullying chat," Adam revealed.
The comedian went on: "She goes, 'Adam, don't let anyone tell you there's anything wrong with you eye.'
"I was like, 'Mum, I've seen it. It's f**ked. Why are you lying?'
"She goes, 'No, it is different, I'll give you that. It is different but that doesn't mean its bad - just means its special. You've got a special little eye and I love your lazy eye and I wouldn't change it for the world.'"
Adam then joked about how his mum went on to make Adam have 'four operations' to fix the eye.
He explained the first three operations were 'exactly the same' as doctors stitched Adam's eyelid to his face.
"But they used dissolvable stitches and as soon as they dissolved they just f**king swung back out again," he continued.
Adam then went into some detail about the fourth surgery - the surgery which allowed him to perform the bizarre but nonetheless fascinating party trick.
He said: "I was born with a muscle weakness on the left side of the face. So to try and even that out, they took a muscle out the top of my right leg and they put it in the left eyelid."
Adam then reiterated, as the audience erupted into a chorus of laughter: "I'll just say that again slowly so you know you've definitely heard it correctly.
"A qualified NHS surgeon needed a muscle to go in here and hold up an almost weightless, paper-thin piece of skin and the decision he came to was, 'Let's put his f**king thigh in it'."
He then quipped about being 'the only kid who could do heads and volleys at the same time'.
And the kicker? (Pardon the pun).
The surgery 'hasn't fixed' Adam's lazy eye.
"On top of all that, it hasn't fixed it because it's a muscle," he went on. "Muscles don't do anything unless you f**king use them.
"It's not just going to reset the eyelid, I have to want to open the eyelid."
"But if I want to open my left eyelid you better f**king believe," Adam said before preparing to pull the stunt.
He then raised both his brows with his right eye looking as you'd expect while his left lid was raised all the way up showing nearly all of Adam's eyeball.
Audiences then cheered as Adam finished up: "I'm doing the same thing with both sides of my face right now.
"Do you know why I can do that?" he concluded. "I've got a f**king thigh in it!
"That's meant for running - I need it to blink! That's not right, is it?!"
