Comedy Night

There are moments in pretty much every sitcom of people sitting comfortably together just sharing a joke. It is a simple concept but something I suspect is rare in the community if experiences match my own.

Autistic people do communicate in a different way from neurotypical people. Therefore neither should be the right way, it should be understood that it’s just a different way.

I have talked to Naz at Breakneck Comedy Club in Aberdeen. We are looking for about 6-10 autistic people to get involved in a unique comedy night. It will be very casual and as educational as it is entertaining. We want to create a very natural experience where we aren’t rude or offensive and can joke without fear. My hope is to show that the misunderstandings that may arise often come from a neurotypical viewpoint. This unfortunately can mean an autistic person is dismissed (or worse) because of a joke.

We will have a live rehearsal so everyone involved knows what will happen on the night. To anyone interested in getting involved, we just want you to be you. We want this to be a lot of fun and hopefully a really enjoyable experience.

If you are interested please send a 2-5 minute video (content of the video completely your choice) to

All my best and love

I really love the idea of an Au-thentic comedy night and I hope this will be the first of many, some aimed at autistic adults, some for families and maybe one day the first Au-thentic comedy festival.
