Asperger's Are Us
Directed by Alexandre Lehmann
For the members of the comedy troupe Asperger’s Are Us, it’s easier to associate with a faceless audience than with their own families. No matter who the crowd, best friends Noah, New Michael, Jack and Ethan have one simple mantra: “We would much rather the audience appreciate us as comedians than people who have overcome adversity.” In this coming-of-age heartfelt documentary, this band of brothers finds themselves at a crossroad. With real life pulling them apart, they decide to plan one ambitious farewell show before they all go their separate ways. People with Asperger’s don’t deal well with uncertainty, and this is the most uncertain time in their lives.

Great documentary. I loved it. Gino and Chase are now convinced that I'm autistic though.

A fun watch, nothing really special about it.
★★★½ review by CeeSide on Letterboxd
An interesting look at how some kids on the autism spectrum use comedy to relate, find acceptance, and as a creative outlet. Not groundbreaking, but sincere and entertaining, and perhaps eye opening to some.
