Here's what the critics are saying: 

"Wade’s narrative persona is a salt-of-the earth guy with a sensitive soul. He tells stories about humiliation and heartache, about small but thrilling human connections and tiny victories that feel huge. The rise of nerd culture has no doubt helped him. Onstage, he seems to be the adolescent misfit within everyone’s soul." - The New Yorker

 

"Adam Wade is one of the best storytellers on the planet" - The Dish

 

"You can't not like him." - Time Out NY

 

“If this endearing storyteller doesn’t make you feel at least a teeny bit warm and fuzzy, check your rib cage, because you may not have a heart.” - Time Out NY

 

“Wade's storytelling prowess stems from a heartfelt honesty that always hits home.” -Time Out NY

 

"Ladies: please do not go to this show if you are currently seeking someone to love. Because Adam Wade will become that person."

- Village Voice

 

"The Moth's Adam Wade--so adorable, he's essentially a human kitten with eye-glasses." - Village Voice 

 

"When it comes to public speaking, Adam Wade knows what it takes." - New York Post
