I like comedians, with or without autism, to joke about their own lives and experiences. Talking about others, even if fictionalized, is risky business to most comedians. Alix Generous is autistic and is quite good with her humor ( https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... perger%27s ).

Aside from the remark about his getting freaked out by the Asian man speaking with an English accent , which I disagree with , considering that accents aren't genetic , I over all liked this comedian's routine . I was laughing out loud through out . And as to the boy he mentioned , I feel that while the public should show some reasonable consideration , and make some accommodation , we on the spectrum should likewise not use our condition as an excuse to be obnoxious . And even I who has chronic vocal tic disorder makes an effort to either keep my verbal outbursts under wraps , or at least subtly utter them under my breath when I am out in public , so as not to bother others . I think that we neurodiverse people do not like it when others annoy us , especially those of us with sensory processing disorder , so we should try not to be unduly annoying to neurotypicals as well .

I got the same. I think you need to be signed into a youtube account and be in the USA coz I got it working by signing into my account and spoofing my IP address as an USA address.

Usually when a video is not available in your country it says exactly that. And you can't spoof your IP address for the kind of traffic that YouTube uses.

All the video said was "this video was not available" and by spoofing I mean using a vpn or proxy and I could only get it to play by doing two things 1. Being signed into a youtube account 2. Setting my proxy as the USA ( no other country worked ) - no other combination would get the video to play except these.
