Adam's Call: The Government Inspector: Funniest Show Off-Broadway

Adam's Call: There are just four chances left to see, Red Bull Theater's "The Government Inspector," the funniest show Off-Broadway! I have seen this show twice and was doubled over in laughter both times. This show is truly an ensemble production! Everyone is given their moment to take the lead, but it's their combined talents that really make the laughter ensue! "The Government Inspector" plays at New World Stages NYC through 8/20 only!
Adam's Call: Joel Creasey: A comedy legend in the making! Last November I saw a comedian whose name will be, if not already, on everybody's lips. That comedian was Joel Creasey! While many comedians tell life stories, Joel had an ease to his style and delivery, not often seen with other comedians. It was great to see a comedian breathe new life into a performance genre that can sometimes blend together between comics. Joel returns to The Laurie Beechman Theatre with a new show playing August 4, 5, and 6th at 7pm!
Adam's Call: Dina Martina: "Flat & Lacking" is full of life! Dina Martina is unlike any performer you've seen! Dina's dark humor is not for everyone, but if you are open to going places that you wonder if it's okay to laugh, then Dina Martina is the perfect show for you to attend!
Adam's Call: Review of Varla Jean Merman's Twice Upon a Mattress: Will My Prince Ever Come? at Provincetown's Art House Theatre: Comedic Insight into Finding Your Place in the World
Adam's Call: Review of "Miss Richfield 1981 Sweet & Sour Made in China" at The Crown & Anchor's Paramount in Provincetown, MA. This energetic and lively show is fueled by the talents of the extremely talented Miss Richfield 1981.
Adam's Call: Review of Dina Martina at The Crown & Anchor in Provincetown, MA: Wunderbar! Dina has such a grasp on performing that it appears effortless for her to draw the audience in.
Review: Julie Halston's "Classical Julie": With the hour I spent laughing at "Classical Julie," I won't need a dose of botox for years to come as my face was stretched from ear to ear.
Review: "Tawny Tell Me True": Out of This World. Performing as his alter ego Tawny Heatherton, David Drake once again filled the air with laughter, joy, and rainbows as he took the audience into the alternate universe that is Tawny Heatherton.
Hilarious, energetic, and fresh are just some of the words I would use to describe Scott Backman's comedy. His spot on humor and high energy electrified the room with laughter. Lucky for NY, Scott has one more show in NY before heading back to LA. Scott will performing at Therapy on 52nd Street (between 8th & 9th Avenue) this Sunday, May 6 at 10pm!
Review: Joan Rivers Live at the Laurie Beechman Theatre: While I have seen Miss Rivers perform live multiple times, each time is special and unique, because she always has new material. To this day, Joan continues to push the comedy envelope. Watching Joan Rivers on television is great, but sitting in the intimate performance space that is the Laurie Beechman Theatre, is like having Joan Rivers teach a master class in comedy.
Performing as his alter ego, Tawny Heatherton, OBIE Award Winner David Drake's "My Tawny Valentine," at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC, takes the audience on the wild ride that is Tawny's life. What makes David such a remarkable writer and performer is that he KNOWS his craft. He effortlessly entices the audience with his words.
Once again I was put into the holiday spirit when I attended Hedda Lettuce's hilarious, smart, and stupendous holiday show "Lettuce Rejoice" on December 18, 2011 at the Metropolitan Room in NYC. With her signature comedy style and original parody songs, Hedda easily won the sold-out crowd over from the moment she took to the stage!
