NeuroSpicy: Love, Life, & Comedy on the Spectrum

Why a Stand-Up Comedy Special about the Spectrum, specifically Aspergers? 

If someone had spent 60 minutes with me, 30 years ago, to explain how my brain was different,
my life would have been completely different.

This is the 60 minutes I wish I had, delivered with humor, to help understand and navigate the Normie world.

This Stand-Up Comedy Special is for you if:

  1. 1. You, a friend, or a family member is on the Spectrum,
  2. 2. You are a Normie who knows someone on the Spectrum, or 
  3. 3. You are "NeuroSpicy" curious. 

Be sure to watch the Trailer and invite friends!

[Note on appropriate age ranges: while this is family-friendly content (no profanity, no depictions of violence, etc), the content is best suited for those over the age of 13].

Sam loved Stand-Up Comedy since he was 6 years old from watching and memorizing comedians on TV. He first performed for a crowd 500+ in 2005 in grad school, and again in 2006, 2007, and 2008, much to the laughter of his classmates (and to the chagrin of his professors).  Recently, he's performed in the 2021, 2022, 2023 Boulder Comedy Festivals, featured at The Dairy Arts Performing Center, headlined in Boulder, and performed at multiple other venues in Colorado since 2019. He's also performed comedy in Texas and New Zealand.

Sam's comedy style is clean, witty, and observational, inspired by comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan. He also includes fun impersonations, such as his personal favorite...David Attenborough. You can watch highlights from his prior shows on his YouTube playlist here: bit.ly/samuelcomedyclips.

During daylight hours, he's a functional medicine practitioner (www.DrSamShay.com) specializing in lab testing and genetics testing for optimal health and performance. He includes humor in consults with his clients, as laughter is the best medicine, second only to a good diet and pooping daily. :)
