Asperger’s Are Us in Berlin!
Sunday, June 16 | 8:30pm - 10:00pm
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
This show will be appropriate for ages 11 and up.
