Sketch Comedy Group Asperger’s Are Us Performs Friday

aspergers r us

The only comedy troupe made up of comedians openly on the autistic spectrum heads to the Arts Center on August 5 for an evening of sketch comedy followed by a Q&A with the performers. Straight off the heels of a new documentary about them executive produced by Mark Duplass premiering at South By Southwest soon to be released on Netflix, this unique group of performers is taking the national waves in the comedy world. Don’t miss the opportunity to see them live on the MainStage this Friday. Tickets on sale here.

Asperger’s Are Us were recently profiled in the New York Times and the Lawrence Journal-World. Take a look at what some of the critics say and see for yourself on August 5!

“Asperger’s Are Us is funny. More than funny: Hilarious. That has to be mentioned first, because it can sometimes be obscured by the fact that the four-man sketch troupe… is, in their words, ‘the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people.’ Their sketches often consist of precisely worded, dark, observational comedy balanced with absurd humor. Even when there is no mention of Asperger’s, sketches often play off the affectlessness associated with their diagnosis, mixing up objects and people in bizarre combinations. It’s smart, weird, deadpan humor at its best.”
