For Tickets & More Information:
  Asperger's Are Us is the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people. As they say, “We're not a charity and we're not poking fun at Asperger's. We're absurd.” For the members of the Massachusetts sketch comedy troupe, it’s easier to associate with a faceless audience than with their own families. No matter who’s in the crowd, best friends Noah, New Michael, Jack, and Ethan have one simple mantra: “We would much rather have the audience appreciate us as comedians than people who have overcome adversity.”

Asperger's Are Us ' s 2016 visit to Baltimore was documented on HBO for a recently released docu-series, On Tour with Asperger’s Are Us. Episode #2 is all about Baltimore!
