Forest Arts Comedy Club Edinburgh Special

2 top comedians bring you a work-in-progress preview of their Edinburgh Fringe shows. 


Joe Wells – Daddy Autism

Joe and his wife want to have a baby. He's autistic so it's quite likely the baby will be too. That's ok, all he needs to do is solve ableism before it's born. As seen on: Rosie Jones’ Disability Comedy Extravaganza, BBC Two’s Ouch Storytelling Live and Channel 4’s Jokes Only a Neurodivergent Can Tell. 'Some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian' (Guardian). Over 20 million online views. 

'One of my favourite comics' (Frankie Boyle).
