“After he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all the features that make it clear that he was on the spectrum are all of the reasons that I fell in love with him,” Schumer said in her comedy special. “That is the truth. He says what is in his mind. He keeps it so real. He doesn’t care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do.”
