My Son's Not Rainman
My Son’s Not Rainman – by John Williams. Directed by ITV British Comedy Award nominee Anna Crilly.
John is a comedian and single dad. His son is eleven years old and autistic… he isn’t a genius. His only special power is making his dad laugh. A lot. This is their true story.
“John Williams’s tales of fatherhood are touching, warm and heartfelt, and he’s also an incredibly funny man. He pours his heart out and the laughs pour in… By the end of the hour, you’re invested in their life together, and want to hear more. Well crafted, funny and full of heart. Go and see it.” ★ ★ ★ ★ – The Skinny
“A sincere, moving hour.” ★ ★ ★ ★ – Three Weeks
Some recent audience feedback:
“The best show I’ve seen in moons … Hilarious and heartwarming in equal measure”
“A fantastic show, autism awareness with a laugh! Funny, moving and will challenge perceptions. So lovely!”
“It was amazing, I was on the edge of crying and laughing all 55 minutes. I’ve never seen anything like that.”
