LAVA ELASTIC is the UK's FIRST openly neurodiverse comedy/performance/poetry night, and is known for hilarious nights, fantastic line-ups, zero-tolerance on hecklers - a brilliant evening for all.

Join us for a night celebrating humans of all kinds. Vive la difference!

In recent years, a theory has emerged that the human race is ‘Neurodiverse’ – a mix of different neurological types. 

Those that aren’t ‘Neurotypical’ (the usual) are known as ‘Neurodivergent’ with differences that include Autism/Aspergers, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Tourette’s Syndrome, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and other types of brain that aren’t ‘Neurotypical’. 

LAVA ELASTIC is a night for brilliant performers who are considered from the ‘problematic’ to the ‘niche’, alongside other fantastic acts who are as varied in their styles…as their brains…which of course everyone is – but we choose to celebrate that at LAVA ELASTIC! 

Neurodivergent performers often struggle to get booked and to navigate the social codes around working with promoters. As a result, there are many talented people you simply don’t get to see. LAVA ELASTIC is here to change that.

Vive la difference! (But also the similarities. Neurotypical performers are of course also on the bill). 

Join us for a night celebrating humans of all kinds!

About Lava Elastic

“Lava Elastic is like a TV variety show if TV was allowed to be weird. It’s a joyous experience that surprises and delights.” Victoria Melody
