Stand-ups with their brains wired differently...

Are comedians more likely to be more neurodiverse than the rest of the population? After all, it’s a profession where having a mind that works differently from what’s called ‘normal’ is an asset in making connections and seeing the world from an unusual angle. Or maybe it's just that they have a platform to open up about it so we hear more about their brains.
