About the Show
- Written and Performed by:Jacci Pillar
Queer. Autistic. Veteran. So many stereotypes. Late to the party. Late bloomer. Late diagnosed. Jacci Pillar was born to be late, but better later than never. Join Jacci, a nonbinary, neurodivergent truth bomber and occasional anthropologist in the comedy therapy circle for a quirky, comedy conversation. The show is presented as an autist’s not-so-anonymous meeting in the art of being literal and the politics of autism diagnoses for people born with vaginas.
“You’re a bit tardy”…isn’t that derived from R… Remember the R word? Let’s burn it down! Queer. Autistic. Veteran. Late to the party. Late bloomer. Late diagnosed. But NOT TARDY. Jacci Pillar was born to be late, then bullied by people who hurried and messed everything up.
If you think names like tardy or lazy or other ableist slurs should burn in hell but still want the right to insult people who deserve it, then this show is for you. Join Jacci, a nonbinary, neurodivergent truth bomber and occasional anthropologist in the comedy therapy circle for a quirky, comedy conversation.
