GICF: IAN LYNAM – AUTISTIC LICENSE

12

GLASGOW INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL

AUTISTIC LICENSE

Most people start comedy because they’re funny. Very few have a doctor’s note saying they can’t be. As an autistic person, Ian’s expected to have a gift, but with no skill in counting matches, he’s settled on comedy. Thrust into a world that told him he could achieve anything but connecting with people, Ian perseveres. In a stand-up comedy show exploring diagnosis, relationships, sexuality, creativity and the history of autism, Ian sets out to prove autistic people have more to offer than being good at maths. But can Ian prove it to himself?

“Funny and engaging, Ian is a hugely likeable performer who has a knack for comedy storytelling”- Broadway World
“His wit and verbal dexterity make him one to watch out for on the comedy circuit”- Fringe Review
