Asperger's Are Us at the London Hackney Attic
Sat 15 July 2017, 19:00 – 23:00 BST
Stars from the same titled documentary on Netlflix Asperger's Are Us, the US comedy troupe made up solely of people on the autism spectrum are bringing their finest offbeat and absurdist sketches to the Hackney Attic on the 15th of July.
If you’re thinking of a live rendition of The Big Bang Theory, then you couldn’t be more wrong. With absurdism that evokes Monty Python and delightfully silly wordplay David Zucker could have written, the four man troupe from Massachusetts might challenge people’s perceptions, but ultimately they have one aim only, to make you laugh.
"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
Asperger’s Are Us are performing 90 minutes of their finest material with a Q&A after the show.
