SA comedy giant Aaron McIlroy launches his latest one-man comedy riot, ADHD, on this year’s National Arts Fringe in Grahamstown.

Join Aaron McIlroy as he embarks on a wild journey into the fantastical world of learning disorders. This hilarious take on the ‘problems’ of ADHD and other ‘disturbing behavioural patterns’ is charmingly portrayed by this master of character comedy. Many facts and theories are turned on their heads as we get a bird’s eye view into the chaotic and beautiful mind of Aaron McIlroy, who has lived with this ‘gift’ for the last half century. ADHD is a comedic steamroller without GPS.

Quips Fringe favourite Aaron about his new show: “If not exactly autobiographical, I certainly have inside information!” The veteran comic’s hugely popular brand of humour has spiced up NAF’s fringe over several decades. Produced by MacBob Productions, ADHD is scripted by McIlroy and Patrick Kenny, and directed by Kenny.
