Matt Kaiser is an Asperger’s stand-up comedian and variety arts entertainer who may be the subject of a movie. But they could use some help funding: Your Aspergers Is Showing by William Rollins — Kickstarter.
I always liked the idea of stand-up and did an open-mic contest long ago in Florida. I got to be friends with another comedian who went on to win the contest and got a professional gig out of it. On opening day he called me for support.
“Dude, I’m about to go on and I’ve got a really bad case of stage fright. I’m gonna bomb. I don’t know what to do.”
“Hey, you’re the one who taught me how to deal with it. Just imagine the audience in their underwear, right?”
“That only makes it worse.”
“What? But… why? You said it always works.”
“No. Not this time. Not this audience.”
“Why not? Where are you?”
“You know that nudist resort just outside of Tampa?”
