Robert White's song about living with Aspergers

For Autism Awareness Week

Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Robert White has written a personal song about his Asperger syndrome.

The sincere tune is about what it's like to live with the condition, and how comedy has given him a way to channel his social anxieties, even though they will never go away.

It starts 'I'm the autistic comedian, that isn't such a laugh but you wouldn't think it funny if you knew the other half of my life' and goes on to explain: 'I've spent half my life in tears explaining, so it's easier to be this comic bloke.'

The track has been released to coincide with Autism Awareness Week, which began yesterday.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
