Comedian: Ian Lynam

His solo show, Portrait of the Autist as a Young Man, debuted as part of the Scene and Heard festival in Smock Alley last year. During Autism Acceptance Month he cooperated with Emily O'Callaghan's Comedy Gold to create Light It Up Gold, Ireland's (possibly the world's) first all-autistic stand up night, Light It Up Gold. He has since performed at Knockanstocken, Kaleidoscope and Vodafone Comedy Festival.
