As Seen On Facebook | After watching Nikki Osborne’s debut show, “On The Spectrum” via @jamcloughlin

After watching Nikki Osborne’s debut show, “On The Spectrum” tonight in St Kilda, I get what those in my autistic/neurodivergent community meant by short-sightedness and neurotypical naivety to the scope of those on the spectrum themselves. Her joke about ‘trolls/critics’ was really beyond the pale, including about one woman who she didn’t identify while on stage!

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Was she referring to you Danijela?

Danijela Turner

Danijela Turner No, but we think we know who she was referring to (well that person believes that was about her and looks like it likely was as we have been following what has been transpiring). I had earlier posted comments to Nikki, respectful and polite BUT clearly asking her questions which were challenging to her. She eventually blocked me from that particular post so I could no longer see what was transpiring there. She blocked others too (some completely from her FB page).

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin A clear indicator of somebody not knowing the differences between trolling and constructive/critical feedback Danijela.

Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Precisely. Plus a strong element of claiming to be the victim!
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Victim-baiting is a lame-ass skill or technique to deflect self guilt, confusion and anxiety.

Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Yes, I believe all of that plus an inflated sense of self perhaps but I better stop talking now 😀 I just look forward to the day when the children become adults and are able to litigate re violation of their privacy and dignity. We need legislation to protect the children from this type of exploitation ASAP.
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Yeah we probably should stop this discussion. 😛

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin I await that moment too when Teddy (Nikki’s young son) reiterates the truthful and adequate narrative of how it is to have a neurotypical parent overstating and oversharing their child’s experiences. Banning exploitation of disabled people’s autonomy, dignity and confidentiality/privacy would be ideal but it has to be proposed by politicians who are disabled or just simply autistic.

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Some of us have been wondering whether to seek help from someone like Jordan Steele-John. He’s based in a different state, but this shouldn’t just be a single state issue, especially since she keeps talking about “taking the show” across Australia, and wouldn’t get a booking without putting precisely the same juxtaposed “abuse of autistics while pretending to ‘raise autism awareness'” into play again.

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Please no we can’t have her toxicity spread to other parts of the country. Get in contact with Jordon as he will be against this style of ‘stand-up comedy.’
Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Hi Jarad. I saw it last night at Kingston Arts hall. It was horrid. Most of the actual live bits were dedicated to abusing and ridiculing not only the autistic people who’ve been trying to raise concerns or ask questions about the show, but ridiculiSee More

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Yes Jacqui thank you for detailing the same problematic elements/subtexts displayed by Nikki and her supporters and friends. What enrages me is her disrespectful, spiteful attitude towards people in the autistic/neurodivergent community which I saw witSee More

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Yes, I was really surprised to hear a couple of autistic people supporting her. I can only assume that they hadn’t seen her horrid blogging about her son, or her encouraging abuse of autistic people on her facebook pages, and participating in it herseSee More

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin It horrifies me to read that autistics endorse this person’s hate-induced defamatory statements and not challenging on her uneducated misconceptions about Autism.

Danijela Turner

Danijela Turner Autistics who supported her were confident that she would present her show in a respectful manner. However, others (such as myself) doubted that as we had already read her ‘mummy blog’ detailing intimate, personal details of her son. This is an exampleSee More

Danijela Turner

Danijela Turner Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Yes and the endorsement of autistics who supported her (including a comedian) is what she ran with via media (unfortunately).

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Danijela & Jarad, it really eats at me that she has basically exploited autistic people at every point, for her own benefit. From exploiting her son, to appropriating autism in her marketing (as she admitted herself, she chose to do a show about autisSee More

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin That testimonial extract about Nikki forcing Teddy to undergo ABA therapies is heartbreaking. Exploitation is the definitive lethal weapon of choice from ‘mommy bloggers’ or ‘autistic campaigners’ who give themselves no self-control to stop comforming, reeducating or reconditioning their child’s physical and emotional behaviourial patterns and mannerisms.

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Oh, and the “Autism charity” that she is an “ambassador” for is basically set up to raise money for one child’s ongoing ABA therapy. Once in a while, they throw tidbits of money to other families, to pay for ONE therapy session, or to buy a cushion orSee More

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Thank you for letting me debrief with you all. The whole ordeal was shocking but it unearthed the dark, cruel, demeaning, manipulating and exploitative world of ‘Autism awareness.’

Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose JaradKathy Isaacs Âû has just pointed out to me that I met you at RA17. I don’t think we spoke there though. I was a little bit overwhelmed the whole time I was there.
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Wow that was in June last year. I vaguely recall someone by your name being at the Academy but as you said we didn’t get to speak to each other.
Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû LOL – Jacqui and I had some excellent conversations, and she realised that she was leaving too early, and with the wrong group! 😂😂😂

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose It was very weird having to leave early with the researchers….

Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû Ah well, you have your Sisters now.

Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû And the rest of your Tribe.

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin And our tribe will never leave anyone out on their own.

Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû Yes, and we’ll welcome Teddy when he is old enough to recognise the harm his mother has done and keeps doing to him through oversharenting and vilifying his neurological peers.

Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose And vilifying him. I don’t think “I can’t give my autistic bomb-making son an axe” (or anything about loving dirt or any of the awful stuff in the blogs) coming up when his classmates Google his name in a couple of years is going to lead to a REDUCTION in bullying.

 

Kathy Isaacs Âû
Kathy Isaacs Âû No. Did you see my post on her official page, or had you been blocked by then?
Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose I think I’m one of the few people who haven’t been blocked. Is it a new post? I remember reading a beautiful one by you a few days ago, and she hadn’t deleted it.
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Until that time we need to encourage, purpose and implement new strategies that fosters more people on the spectrum to navigate the systemic narrative in the mainstream media such as hiring journalists, politicians and actors with Autism.
Kathy Isaacs Âû
Kathy Isaacs Âû Yes, from a few days ago.Manage

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Kathy, she absolutely didn’t listen to that at all. It was “Teddy this” and “Teddy that”. Most of her stories I’d heard before (that doesn’t make it okay to keep repeating them to new people all the time), and a couple that I hadn’t, someone else saidSee More

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Rinse and repeat! An old remedy for those with no comedic talent or credibility.

Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû OK, I kinda lost it on her page.

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin You alright? *hugs*

 

Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû Honestly, I’m good. Well, it’s nearly 4am and I’m ranting about people’s shows, but hey…

Jacqui Rose Just now?

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin The more I canvas the comments on Nikki’s page, the more they begin to infuriate me! 😠😠

Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose Oh crap! It is 4am. I really have to go to bed! Nice chatting, lovely people. P.S. I love your rant, Kathy. I wonder if it will stay there.
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Hopefully Nikki won’t delete your comment Kathy. It accounts for the cold-hard facts of ableism and the hateful, insensitive belittlement of Autism.
Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose I think it’s already deleted. HEAPS of things look to have been deleted. Lucky for screen shots, hey?
Kathy Isaacs Âû
Kathy Isaacs Âû Not deleted yet. It’s on the vid post where she says she had to change theatres.
Kathy Isaacs Âû
Kathy Isaacs Âû I’m kinda curious. Considering Nikki has blocked me, she may not even know it’s there. Everyone else will see it though, so I guess that’s all to the good.
Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Kathy, that’s kind of funny! 😂

Ryan Smedley

Ryan Smedley I am looking forward to seeing it myself and coming to my own conclusions next week 🙂

Ryan Smedley Nikki Osborne Crazy exhausted! Yeah the response we received was very supportive. We actually added 3 more shows in May still at Butterfly Club if you’d like to come along? Not sure which day I’m seeing your show but it will probably be St Kilda. Should probably book since it sounds like they’re selling fast!

Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose Loved your show, Ryan🙂
Ryan Smedley
Ryan Smedley Thanks Jacqui! We had a blast 🙂
Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose I think you’ll be rather shocked with Nikki’s. I’m glad you’re going to see it for yourself.
Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose And…?
Ryan Smedley
Ryan Smedley Jacqui Rose I truly don’t have any issue with the concept behind Nikki’s show, and it’s the concept alone that seems to irk many people. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it; but I will be coming with a light-hearted approach and ready to enjoy myself 🙂
Ryan Smedley
Ryan Smedley Danijela Turner Âû If you like the Facebook page “The Aspie Hour” then you can keep up to date with future plans. There are many possibilities at this stage but it’s very open. Fingers crossed for big things!
Kathy Isaacs Âû
Kathy Isaacs Âû Ryan Smedley – your and Sophie’s show was heaps of fun, and really well put together! (Mind you, I love musical theatre, so I was always going to be biased).
Your song about the rendezvous in Central Park was especially evocative and thinking about it just now made me smile.
Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Ryan Smedley Ok, I’ll follow your page. I have heard good things about your show. We miss out a bit in Adelaide but good when Fringe Festival is on 🙂
Danijela Turner

Danijela Turner Ryan Smedley I like hearing different perspectives of others. I know where I clearly stand on Nikki Osborne’s show (I’m not going to budge) but I respect difference of opinion from others as it enhances my own way of looking at things. I think perhaps See More

Ryan Smedley

Ryan Smedley Danijela Turner Âû I couldn’t agree more 😉

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Ryan I admire you enough for you to have a different opinion about Nikki’s show, but after watching it myself last night it was not a pleasurable experience particularly when she bad mouthed certain, individual Autistic advocates as ‘trolls.’

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Hi Ryan, it’s certainly not the concept alone that irks any of the people I’ve seen commenting or reaching out for months. The appropriation WAS one of the first things that raised concerns, as well as other ignorant and insulting things about how it was presented. Ignorance can’t be helped, but the way that someone deals with having it pointed out to them that they’re causing a lot of trauma and damage in a highly vilified minority group, particularly when you’re pretending to champion that minority group, really does matter.

Nikki and her backers have systematically shunned and silenced every attempt by individual members of the autism community to raise their concerns. Nikki has encouraged her supporters to verbally abuse and ridicule the autistic people who’ve raised concerns, and the actual concerns as well, and she’s participated in the ridicule and abuse herself, disgustingly. She continues the abuse in her show, and belittles the concerns in her show.

Don’t be fooled by the unrealistic popular media. The main issue here is Nikki’s abuse and ridicule, shunning and silencing of autistic people, while pretending to stand up for them, and benefiting from the whole sordid thing. It’s repulsive and abhorrent.

Ryan Smedley

Ryan Smedley Hi Jacqui, it boils down to 2 points for me. One is, you can’t criticise anything without knowing its content. Two is, if you don’t think you will enjoy something, you don’t have to see it. Being offended or concerned is not, and never has been, groundSee More

Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Ryan Smedley It’s an interesting debate. For myself, I am coming more from a perspective of….does a parent own the right to disclose personal details about their child, that child’s disability, the challenges associated with the child’s disability in a wide-scale, public arena? Without the child being able to fully understand the consequences of his parent ‘sharing all’, how this may affect the child in the present day and in future years to come? I think she has most definitely created a internet
‘blueprint’ for her son prior to him even entering adulthood in terms of he no longer has full choice as to what he tells and to whom. How will that affect his social avenues, work opportunities and so on? Nikki has stated her child is fine with the show and was more interested in playing with toys. I think that is a ‘no-brainer’ re the kid is 6 years old, there’s no way at that age that he could possibly understand the implications of his mother blogging about him, creating a comedy stage show about him etc – hence this is not ‘informed consent’. There’s been a lot of argument from her supporters that this is Nikki’s right to tell her story but very little acknowledgement about her son’s right to privacy and dignity. That is hugely concerning to me as it indicates to me a societal perception that a parent’s (aka Nikki’s) feelings and rights come above that of her child’s. I’ve been considering whether the child is being ‘objectified’ by her supporters because he is autistic? Perhaps it’s assumed that he is ‘too autistic’ to feel and know any better, that he is ‘too disabled’ to feel and know any better, that where this child is now in terms of his comprehension and understanding will be where he will be at as an adult? These are the stereotypes that we are all too well familiar with and the very stereotypes that many have worked hard to challenge in saying ‘autistic people have a right to tell their story and not have it told by others’. From what I have read, there are already situations overseas where older children/young adults are now looking to litigate their parents for over-sharing details about them on the internet. I’m predicting there will be much more of this yet to come in the future.

Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Hence, my issue is with any parent that exposes their child in this manner. Not purely just Nikki. It’s just that Nikki has evolved from ‘mommy blogging’ online to taking it to the stage and creating a comedy show out of it. I think that’s a first, right?
Ryan Smedley
Ryan Smedley Danijela Turner Âû You are absolutely right. I agree this is a genuine concern to have, and I have been told of some of these cases where people are litigating against the parents, and indeed winning. The wellbeing of the child should unquestionably come first.
It still comes back to the trust I wish we had in each other, rather than assuming the worst. No one actually knew the stories she intended to tell, or how much her child is aware of the show, or any conversations she has had with him. I hope Nikki is keeping the wellbeing of her child in mind as she does this, as she very well should. This does make the situation blurrier, but does the performance immediately abrogate the rights of the son? I don’t believe it does. I appreciate you sharing your perspective 🙂
Ryan Smedley
Ryan Smedley (I wish I had seen some reasoned courteous discussion such as this back when this controversy started. This is rational debate that helps to build understanding of opposing viewpoints, and I wish there was more of it on the internet)
Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Ryan Smedley Yes, these are the questions to ponder. I also keep coming back to an overall thought that her child Teddy is being ‘climatised’ from a young age to accept that his life and story is public property. In effect, he is being ‘trained’ to accept this and I’m not saying this is being done with ill-intent or maliciousness on behalf of the parent/parents – but evidently he is learning that his life is open to be shared with everyone and discussed with everyone. There’s a lot of people supporting her to ‘get up on that stage and talk about her son etc’ but I’m also questioning the hypocrisy. I think if you asked many of these same people to do exactly the same with their own children re get up on stage, start blogging about their child’s toileting behaviours, social difficulties, quirks and so on….many would not go there. Then ask them…’well, why not?’ Most likely, they would argue that it’s their child and their family private, personal business YET they are all for this being done by another parent to someone else’s child?
Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Ryan Smedley Well, I actually politely and rationally asked Nikki these questions yet she deleted my comments and blocked me from that particular post. As much as these are questions we are willing to consider respectfully, she was not and that is most unfortunate. In any case, the future will tell 🙂 I also do change my own opinions and perspectives if I feel someone is coming from a more logical and sensible place. I cannot remain stagnant with my own way of thinking as I will not ever grow and evolve but in this situation, I have logically thought of every angle for and against and my perspectives have not changed.
Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Hi Ryan.

I’m sorry that I don’t have time to reply at length right now, but I promise I will come back to this when I get the chance. All I’ll say just quickly is in response to your first paragraph.

With all due respect, your two boiled down points are off topic as far as the actual discussion that people have been trying to have for months goes, and are in response to the misrepresentation of the situation in the media, which has been milked by the show’s writer and backers to garner more publicity.

I didn’t see anyone criticising the show, until after they’d seen it. I have seen a very small proportion of people saying it should be banned, but the vast majority of communication I’ve seen for the past few months has involved autistic people seeking clarification about the show following concerning aspects in the marketing material, then autistic people asking why they were being shunned by the writer & her backers, and bullied and ridiculed by the writer and her supporters.

Thinking you’ll enjoy or not enjoy the show is irrelevant. Allowing or ignoring the mass bullying behaviour against autistic people trying to raise concerns about an autistic matter is the issue here.

I’ll come back when I can. 🙂

Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose I should say, is the issue as I see it.

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin

Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Keep your mind wide open Ryan and don’t resist from knowledging your concerns.

Ryan Smedley

Ryan Smedley Jacqui Rose That’s all good, I know my response was ridiculously lengthy.

I still have to disagree. That was the point made by posts that I have read, made by the media too it’s true, that the autistic community did not feel they had been appropriately consulted about the contents of her show, and as a result the show should be called off. (Not doubting the media coverage has done terrific things for ticket sales, I won’t be naive about that). “I’m autistic and I don’t like the idea of someone who doesn’t have autism making jokes about autism” said Monica Elez. Another person wrote “you refuse to speak to autistic adults who have tried to reach out to you and explain why this show is wrong”. One could say I’m cherry-picking, but they are examples of what I’ve seen as I have read all over the place. They are criticising a show without seeing it, they really are.

As I wrote before, I have read about Nikki deleting comments, but obviously I haven’t seen them since they were deleted so I don’t know what they are or their context. Bullying is not on. Abuse is not on. No one should need to resort to that. May I clarify that your own issues are not with the show at all, but at Nikki’s behaviour when dealing with the barrage of concerns that have come her way leading up to the show? I would not expect her to respond to every single person; I would expect her to respond politely to those she does, but it’s not easy when some people are very impolite in their indignance. Danijela and yourself seem very composed and polite people who aren’t out to hurt anyone either. It is sad that it has upset so many people. But at least we can agree that the show itself, and dealing with online concerns are two separate issues. I can’t defend any of Nikki’s online actions, how could I? I’m not privy to her thought processes or her actions. All I’m doing is defending the show, which in my view received an excess of criticism prior to opening.

Forgive me, but responding to these comments about my point of view is very draining and time-consuming so I am going to leave it there for today. Thank you for constructively helping me to see things from your own perspectives. We can disagree, and that’s ok. Sorry Danijela for not properly responding to you; I won’t defend Nikki personally, as that’s not your job. But I absolutely hold respect for your views too but I must pull out now so I can go and eat food ^_^

Ryan Smedley
Ryan Smedley (Sorry, not “not your job” at the end there, I meant “not MY job”.)
Kathy Isaacs Âû

Kathy Isaacs Âû The tagline “living life on the Spectrum” with the puzzle piece images wasn’t the main concern expressed by a long shot – it was just the thing that made us notice it. And we *definitely* never said Autism wasn’t something to laugh at. Of course it is; it’s great to laugh at yourself.

When I first saw it I commented on her post, asking whether she was Autistic herself. (Not even to try to suggest she wasn’t and shouldn’t appropriate it at that time.)

She had written somewhere – I think in one of the posts deleted from her wall – that her blog had inspired the comedy show, so her lack of any decent response led me to find her blog – as it did many others – and that was when we got concerned.

The Autistic community has been requesting meetings with Nikki since this first came out, asking for clarification as to whether the content of the show would similar to the content of her blog. Not only has she ignored us, she has herself used language to belittle and denigrate the adult Autistics, although she deleted them afterwards.

Ryan Smedley

Ryan Smedley Jarad Andrew McLoughlin It’s very important to keep an open mind; I think everyone here including myself acknowledges that 🙂

Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Ryan Smedley All good. I became so immersed in this all a few weeks ago that I had to pull back to eat and sleep lol. Look, I think it’s a good discussion and raises a good debate.
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin
Jarad Andrew McLoughlin I’m enjoying participating in this debate too. It encompasses the parallels between how neurotypicals and those actually diagnosed on the spectrum react to comedic material produced on stories and experiences of parenting.
Danijela Turner
Danijela Turner Jarad Andrew McLoughlin Oh, absolutely. What I also find interesting is the contrast between Nikki Osborne and other celebrities. Nikki was a celebrity (in terms of being an actor) prior to having an autistic child. I don’t consider her a large-scale celebrity by any means with a few performances here and there but she’s a celebrity none-the-less. The premise is that she is sharing details of her son and his life to promote ‘autism awareness’. I question that premise. I personally don’t think she is going to make any sort of ‘dent’ in ‘autism awareness’ but within her circle of supporters, there is this inflated belief that she will and she’s almost perceived as some sort of martyr. I find the psychology behind that interesting as well. Meanwhile, there are other celebrities (far more famous and well-known) who do the exact opposite to Nikki in terms of doing everything possible to shield their children from the public eye and keep their lives private. They have a much more larger following than Nikki (consider John Travolta whose autistic son sadly passed away) but yet they don’t go down the avenue of using their child to create the ‘awareness’. So why does one do it whilst another one doesn’t and what’s the actual motive behind their actions? And if you are picking up that I am skeptical, it’s because I am 😆
Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose Look after yourself, Ryan. It is very draining and time-consuming, and that’s also something that really bothers me about all of this. Two things that Nikki & her backers and supporters are either unaware of, or are aware of and are cruely indifferent to, are that (1) a fairly common feature amongst autistic people is an overwhelming preference for integrity and honesty in both themselves and others, and (2) how exceedingly draining it is for autistic people to keep sticking up for themselves while they’re being ridiculed and abused, or even when they’re simply being misunderstood, or think they might be, and are trying to maintain respectful awareness of both perspectives in a discussion or disagreement, to get to the underlying truth.

To see Nikki & her producer and the venue owners so callously disregard and wipe aside the autistic people who were very openly and earnestly and politely approaching them, and then to see the ridicule and bullying encouraged by Nikki on her pages, then to see and hear Nikki herself ridiculing and dismissing all these earnest people who’ve approached her in good faith, has been painful to watch.

That’s part of what I mean by the trauma and damage, although above I was specifically referring to people who were triggered by the appropriation suggested in the title and blurb, the ridicule suggested by the whole premise of a comedy “about” autism by a non-autistic person, the puzzle pieces, and the disrespectful and dismissive comments such as autism being “refreshing” and doing a show “about” autism because it’s a “trendy” topic. I *think* you’re okay with the line “everyone is on the spectrum” (tbh, I couldn’t tell whether that song in your show was sarcastic or you meant it), but a lot of people find that line hugely offensive or triggering.

When made aware of the damaging effects of all of this on many members of the autistic community, Nikki’s and her backers’ response has been silencing and ridicule. Any decent human being, even if they didn’t understand it, and let alone a self-appointed “autism campaigner”, would apologise and clarify, and be respectful of the community she supposedly supports. Encouraging ridicule of “the trolls” is not what a decent human being would do in this situation, and certainly not what an autism campaigner would do.

Don’t feel as if you need to respond in any hurry, Ryan. I totally get it and I’m in the same boat, because I still need to respond to your earlier message.

Don’t apologise for long messages! I’m frequently guilty of the same myself.

Jacqui Rose
Jacqui Rose P.S. I’m with you, Ryan, that it’s too exhausting to talk about. I find it super interesting that we interpret those comments differently (to me they’re talking about the bigger, more important issues, but to you they’re direct criticism of the show). See More
Jacqui Rose

Jacqui Rose A friend went last night. She’s toned down the hatred of autistic people, and removed the line “Since when are autustic people an authority on comedy?”. (Did she say that the night you went, Jarad?). The drunk aboriginal joke, the poorly-executed “I feel sorry for middle aged white men with jobs” bit, “Escape to the Cuntry”, and all her pc-bashing was taken out too.

It was a super short show – around 22 minutes when you take out the prerecorded stuff. There was an added bit about savants (seriously!!!!).
