The Adam Wade From New Hampshire Show

Tales of Life, Love and Little League

Written By: Adam Wade
Directed By: Jake Goldman

Second Monday of every month



The people have spoken. For the past few years, people have asked if Adam Wade would ever put together some type of one-man show. Fortunately for them, the wait is over.

The Adam Wade From New Hampshire Show is here and promises to be something you don’t want to miss. The show opens with one of a rotating pool of great storytellers in New York City. They will tell a wonderful, fifteen-minute original story.  Then Adam Wade will greet the audience and for the next forty-five minutes he’ll tell a few stories from his adolescent years, sing a song or two on the guitar, and play videos and rare home movies. No two shows will be the same.  Adam promises the people a variety of ways to experiment what stories he’ll be telling such as theme, luck and sheer randomness to keep them coming to the show month after month.

This great show will give the audience a chance to see Adam Wade combine music and video to his Moth winning (and tested) stories.  They will also hear longer sets from some of their favorite storytellers in the city.



Adam Wade, originally from New Hampshire, is a record fifteen-time StorySLAM Champion, and two-time GrandSLAM Champion at The Moth ("New York's hottest and hippest literary ticket" by The Wall Street Journal). The Moth has given him the opportunity to perform alongside the likes of Garrison Keillor, Malcolm Gladwell and Adam Gopnik.  He’s also been featured on their popular podcast (500,000 downloads a month) with Jonathan Ames. Adam has been performing his stories in New York City for the past ten years at renowned venues such as Joe’s Pub, the Highline Ballroom, Caroline's on Broadway, and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. He is a regular at the New York City comedy and storytelling shows The Nights of Our Lives, The Liar Show, Speakeasy Stories, Mortified, The Rejection Show, Stories at the Creek, The BTK Band Show, and Stripped Stories, among others.  For the past year, Adam has produced and co-hosted a very successful monthly storytelling show in the city called True Tales of College at Comix in New York City. On August 16th, 2009 Adam and True Tales of College were featured in the Sunday New York Times ‘Style’ section’s piece on The Moth.  Video of his winning slam story from August 11th  was also posted on NYTIMES.COM. His writing has been featured in the New York Press, Glamour Magazine and the New York Times.
