Asperger’s Are Us is the first comedy troupe in the U.S. comprised solely of people diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. It’s important to know that the group does not poke fun at Asperger’s or mention it during their sketches. They’re just a group of guys who do absurdist comedy (think Monty Python), and they’ve been touring across the country and abroad since 2010. You might have seen them on their HBO docu-series, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
