Following the success of the blog of the same name, John talks not just about the difficulties of having a child who is considered 'different' but also the joy of living with someone who looks at the world in a unique way.
John Williams is a stand-up comedian. Unusually, his show is based on his life as a single parent to his son, who just happens to have autism. His tours take him all over the UK, including the Edinburgh Festival where he had a sell-out run last year. His blog gets nearly 4,000 hits a day and has led to him being asked to be the Keynote Speaker at the National Autistic Society annual conference and having an article published about him on both the BBC website and in the Guardian newspaper. He has also recently been asked to do a two-week speaking tour next year in Australia around World Autism Day (April 2015).
