ON TOUR WITH ASPERGER'S ARE US

Comedy, Documentary
From executive producers Mark and Jay Duplass, On Tour with Asperger's Are Us is a six-part HBO documentary series that follows the first all-autistic comedy troupe as it navigates its first cross-country tour. Crammed into a relic of an RV that’s on the verge of explosion, the team of four hits the road for six weeks, testing their understanding of friendship, comedy, and carburetors.

After the Screening: A comedy performance by the featured comedy troupe Asperger’s Are Us.

PANELIST

Asperger's  Are Us

Asperger's Are Us

Asperger's Are Us is the first comedy troupe composed entirely of people diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. They met in 2005 when New Michael Ingemi, Jack Hanke, and Ethan Finlan attended a summer camp where Noah Britton was their counselor. Since 2010, they've written and performed over 100 original sketch comedy shows in 9 countries, and done countless interviews with international press. They stay away from relatable or observational comedy and references to autism, instead focusing on deadpan wordplay and dark absurdism, comedic styles that typically appeal more to a subset of people with Asperger's. This bio is exactly 100 words.
