Asperger’s Are Us in Berlin!

Sunday, June 16 | 8:30pm - 10:00pm

  • This event has passed.

See the stars of the self-titled Netflix documentary and the HBO docuseries ‘On Tour with Asperger’s Are Us’!

“Audiences don’t usually know what to expect from Asperger’s Are Us, a Boston sketch comedy troupe made up solely of artists on the autism spectrum. Will they use self-deprecating humor about life with Asperger’s syndrome? Are they hoping to shed light on a seriouscondition? Will they be something like Sheldon, the socially inept character on CBS’s ‘The Big Bang Theory’?

The answer, it turns out, is none of the above.

Instead of focusing on the condition, the four men who make up thetroupe perform skits and monologues that reflect their thoughts, perspectives and offbeat sensibilities, often characterized by deadpan and absurd humor… the guys are not looking for sympathy laughs or polite applause. Their show is not an autism awareness campaign, they say. They want people to laugh simply because they’re funny.” -New York Times

“Weird as the per­form­ances were, they were in line with the type of sketch I like from Kids in the Hall or Whitest Kids U’Know—oddball char­ac­ters, goofy premises, and clev­er word­play. As a neur­o­typ­ic­al per­son who is gen­er­ally ig­nor­ant of aut­ism, I didn’t know what to make of the As­per­ger’s as­pect of the act. As a dis­crim­in­at­ing fan of al­tern­at­ive com­edy, I ate it up.” – Philadelphia Weekly
