Description

Most people start comedy because they're funny. Very few have a doctor's note saying they can't be. As an autistic person, Ian's expected to have a gift, but with no skill in counting matches, he's settled on comedy. Thrust into a world that told him he could achieve anything but connecting with people, Ian perseveres. In a stand-up comedy show exploring diagnosis, relationships, sexuality, creativity and the history of autism, Ian sets out to prove autistic people have more to offer than being good at maths. But can Ian prove it to himself?
