3 Work in Progress outings of stand up comedy shows going up to the Edinburgh Fringe.
STEPHEN CARLIN: THE RISE OF THE AUTISTIC
First came the Jurassic period, then the Enlightenment and now the Age of Autistics. Welcome to 2017! Where emotional intelligence is thrown out the window for resentment and self-justification. Finally, an era where we can ALL thrive.

“It’s impossible not to be won over.” The Reviews Hub ★★★★★
“Lucy Porter is exactly what every stand-up comedian at the Fringe should be like… An incredible breath of fresh air.” EdFest ★★★★
