Adam Riches returns with an exclusive two-night run of his hit 2018 Edinburgh Fringe show ‘The Guy Who…’
As sensitive as soap and twice as slippery, The Guy Who you meet right after you come out of a long-term relationship is one of the planet’s most deliberate men. He works alone. In a bar. In a bookshop. In a cafe. In amongst you, in plain sight. He says everything he thinks you want him to say and plenty that you don’t. Beware. Be very, very aware.
Adam said: “This is a show with an edge unlike any other I’ve performed. The kind of guy that just stalks, preys, wields virtue signalling as a weapon. He cuts quite close to the bone sometimes, but in doing so hopefully exposes these guys for what they are. Ubiquitous.’
