This is the hilarious moment an autistic comedian brings the house down with his sketch about his non-autistic brother.
Joe Wells performed the routine at the Top Secret Comedy Club in London where he spoke about all the traits of his ‘severely not autistic’ sibling.
He joked with the crowd about his own diagnosis with autism, saying: ‘I am properly diagnosed and everything. So if you heckle me, technically that is a hate crime’.

The comedian said about his brother: ‘He’s very severely not autistic. He’s got all the symptoms.
‘He loves making eye contact. He’s really into loud, sudden noises. Sh*t at maths.’
He then joked that ‘wasn’t fair’ on non-autistic people, and that they could also be good at maths, adding: ‘with the right support you can achieve anything’.
In the video, posted on September 7, Mr Wells turns round comments typically made to autistic people and uses them to joke about his sibling.
He said: ‘He went to university, which I think is amazing for a not autistic person.
‘I mean obviously he had a specialist course that was adapted to meet his needs. It’s called film and media studies.’
Mr Wells, who has been tour support comedians like Frankie Boyle and Alexei Sayle, joked that his brother has ‘achieved incredible things for a not autistic person’.
The comedian’s writing career began when he published his first book ‘Touch and Go Joe’ about his experiences of OCD.
He has since made a name for himself as a stand up comic, writer and speaker.
