- I find it easier

to make people laugh

once they start

to understand me,

get my sense of humor.

But if you just ask me

to tell you a joke,

well usually, I'll probably

tell you an anti-joke,

with a true story.

- It's always fun,

'cause whenever someone asks,

I run away in fear.

- So, even though I'm pretty

analytical in general,

I tend not to analyze

comedy very much,

just because for me,

it is what it is.

You don't really need

to know more than that.

Of course, there's

also a science of it.

- The best way to be funny

is to always explain your jokes

right after you tell them.

You need to be like,

"Get it?"

- When I got my

diagnosis 10 years ago,

I knew I need to meet

more people like me,

'cause I never have.

I spent 20 years in utter

isolation and confusion.

And two is, I have to make it

so no one else has to do that.

When we started

this comedy troupe,

all we could focus on is,

let's come up with stuff

that makes us laugh.

Jump on my train yeah

My little train of thought

Jump on my train yeah

My little train of thought

I know what I have

Do you know what you got

Jump on my train yeah

My little train of thought

The season's shifting, yeah

But I'm cool to hot

Jump on my train, yeah

My train, my

train of thought

- Are there challenges? Yes.

But, it's not all bad,

and we've developed these things

which we think are very funny

and we like to

share with people.

- I might be here at

this comedy show tonight.

- Yeah, it's great to support

people with disabilities

by just throwing

your money at them.

The famous people, yeah

They go out looking proud

They're standing right 'round

And breaking holy ground

The famous people

They got their demons

I got my demons

But in my she's believin'

Hey famous people yeah

Step on my train

And make a movie

And it will be

the real thing

- Mom?

- Dad?

- You want to

put me into foster care,

and then adopt some other kid?

- Exactly!

You're understanding perfectly.

- I'm gonna go get another

one from the truck!

- Everyone always says,

"Oh, your name is so funny."

And I'm like, "No, we really

do have Asperger's," but

two years or something

into the troupe, I realized

I guess the name is funny,

'cause it's

grammatically incorrect,

but I never thought about it.

- Well Microsoft Word

always corrected it.

Asperger's is We.

Jump on my train yeah

My little train my

train of thought

I love you so much

- Doing great.

I love you so much

Last time, everybody

close your eyes.

Think about what

you love the most.

I love you so much

Good morning, everyone.


I love you all,

thanks for watching!

I got shirts and bags and hair

if anyone wants

to buy that hair.

It's free.

Thanks for doing that.

- That was a great set!

- Thanks, tight!

- Never done that before.

- Well, that's what she said.

All right, I'll be in the can.

- That is what she said.

- I was in elementary

school and I saw this

video about Kenya,

and it said they run everywhere.

I was like, "Why

don't we do that?"

It's better exercise,

you get there faster.

No downside.

So ever since, I just

run everywhere I go

if I'm by myself.

So then everyone was like,

"Noah's weird, he

runs everywhere."

And I didn't mind,

'cause I was like,

"It's better to be

right than popular."

But, as I get

older, I recognize,

it depends on the situation.

- Next stop, West Newton.

- So this is my actual brain,

and one of the

benefits of having a

in vogue medical

or mental condition

is that there's

a lot of research

that you could get paid to do,
