Asperger's Are Us
Comedy night at DRKMTTR! Limited seating so get your tickets now!

Hot on the heels of their HBO show, 'On Tour with Asperger's Are Us,' the first comedy troupe composed of people with Asperger Syndrome returns to Nashville for a night of all-new absurdist sketch comedy, appropriate for anyone who's started puberty. "Audiences dont usually know what to expect from Aspergers Are Us, a Boston sketch comedy troupe made up solely of artists on the autism spectrum. Will they use self-deprecating humor about life with Aspergers syndrome? Are they hoping to shed light on a serious condition? Will they be something like Sheldon, the socially inept character on CBSs 'The Big Bang Theory'? The answer, it turns out, is none of the above. Instead of focusing on the condition, the four men who make up the troupe perform skits and monologues that reflect their thoughts, perspectives and offbeat sensibilities, often characterized by deadpan and absurd humor... the guys are not looking for sympathy laughs or polite applause. Their show is not an autism awareness campaign, they say. They want people to laugh simply because theyre funny." - New York Times
"Weird as the performances were, they were in line with the type of sketch I like from Kids in the Hall or Whitest Kids UKnowoddball characters, goofy premises, and clever wordplay. As a neurotypical person who is generally ignorant of autism, I didnt know what to make of the Aspergers aspect of the act. As a discriminating fan of alternative comedy, I ate it up." -
