Gay boy with autism explores a lifetime of trying to fit in with other men, with mixed results

Harry Wright examines his autism and his sexuality, and how these intersect with their class identity, growing up in a deprived area of Yorkshire, England. Harry considers how sex, relationships and music have helped them become a better man, in theory anyway. Plus numerous dick jokes.

Harry treats us to insightful observations with a youthful and exciting voice over a one our intimate Zoom (sit-down) comedy show, bound to have you bursting with emotion.

Harry explores their autism and their sexuality, and how these intersect with their class identity,
growing up in a deprived area of Yorkshire, UK. They think they might be autistic because of their
dad, who never gave accurate life advice despite being extremely blunt and northern. Harry has
never been able to find a good male role model and examines how sex, relationships and music
have helped them become a better man, in theory anyway. Plus, numerous dick jokes.
After developing Smalltown Boy as a WIP at Leicester Comedy Festival earlier in the year, Harry is
taking their show on the road, to Midsumma, where they can share their story and celebrate as part
of a wonderful queer arts & culture setting.

Harry Wright brings their experience as a gay, autistic, young person to the stage, in their exciting,
observational and original depiction of how they are perceived and how this contrasts with their
reality. Since 2011, Harry has been making rooms laugh on open-spots and in new-act competitions,
and now they are ready to introduce themself to an eager audience who are just waiting to fall in
love with their unique and modern voice.


Harry was a Finalist in 2Northdown New Act of the Year 2019 and a Finalist for the Max Turner Prize
2020. Harry is also the first-ever online Winner of the Comedy Store's King Gong 2020.
