I've been doing stand-up comedy for about ten months in the Portland, ME/Northern New England area! Glad to hear there are others on the board who share the interest. :)

There are ton's of aspies in entertainment there is a huge myth that somehow they don't exist but they do.

Aspies can do anything if it's there special interest, entertainment arts, are just as predictable as anything else, the thing is, it's bloody rare that most aspies would spend the thousands of hours necessary to be a entertainer if it weren't there special interest.

Hannah Gadsby... She was diagnosed about three or four years ago.. She has a comedy special, "Nanette", on Netflix... I love her! She also has a youtube channel called "Renaissance Woman" where she talks about Renaissance art, as art history is her special interest. :)))...

There was an episode of "True Life" called "I Have Autism" and one of the people they focused on was Elijah, a young man with Asperger's.

I don't know any but I guess it could happen despite whatever idiosyncratic sense of humor that autistic people have

I should have clarified my earlier post- Elijah was a stand-up comedian and part of his routine was jokes about his autism. Also, Jim Jefferies has a bit about being diagnosed as on the spectrum.
