Joe Wells at The Lowry | Sat 1 Apr | 8pm | £12.50

After going viral in 2020 for his routine about his ‘severely non-autistic brother’, comedian Joe Wells inadvertently became an unelected autism spokesperson. As he is still figuring it out for himself he delves deeper into what it means to be autistic in an illuminating and hilarious study of what it is to be human. Wells is one of the most unique voices in the comedy world and this may well be his best show yet.

Millerick is that rare thing, a throwback with a modern voice. The last of the angry young men who still has hope we can turn things around.
