Dates, Times and Prices


Often described as a force of nature, Colin is a performance comedian who's erratic and truly ridiculous storytelling provides insight into the peculiar existence of a 44-year-old human male, adoptee, parent and grandparent with ADHD, dyspraxia and autism. His life is a constant source of material – Attention Deficit is Colin's story from running away from home at 14, learning to be an adult without suitable guidance or supervision, literal interpretations, lateral interpretations, relationships, conspiracy theories, hedonism, leopard print, what apparently constitutes "parenting" his own children all through the haze of his neurodiversity.
