Joe Wells: King of the Autistics


This event has passed.

There are 700,000 autistic people in the UK but who is their leader? 2 years ago, Joe Wells decided he should be “King of The Autistics” and it all went horribly wrong.

Over 4.5m views online for his video ‘Having a non-autistic brother’. As seen on Rosie Jones’ Disability Comedy Extravaganza, BBC2’s Ouch! Storytelling Live and Channel 4’s Jokes Only a Neurodivergent Can Tell.

The follow up to the critically acclaimed, I Am Autistic (available now on YouTube), this is a stand-up show about representation, role models and the fight for autistic rights.

NOTE: There is no unwanted audience interaction in this show.
