Hi. I’m Adam. I do comedy. Sometimes on my own. Sometimes involving the audience.
I’ve written some brand new scripts for some brand new shows that I’d really love to hear out loud. Trouble is, some of them feature more than one character and despite being a “once in a lifetime generational talent with the raw natural ability to transport audiences up, out of their seats, straight into the vestibule”, it might make a little more sense if I ask you to read those parts instead?
Don’t worry. Nothing too strenuous. I’ll be doing most of the heavy lifting as I’m a fully (un)trained professional. I just thought it could be a fun, new way to see a work in progress and hey, who knows? You might even enjoy it.
So long as you don’t eff up all over my oeuvre that is…
