NEW YORK TIMES 10/21/11
Down a treacherous series of depth-defying steps, at the
Theater Under St. Marks, the storyteller and comedian Adam Wade
is hosting his monthly “Adam Wade From New Hampshire” show.
Using a combination of videos and talk, Mr. Wade recalls
the amorous habits of his college roommate and his own first job
in the city, working as a waiter. His stories have a rueful sweetness
to them, as told by a guy who’s often too nice to go for a devastating zinger in life.

Horse Trade press release about the show:
The Adam Wade From New Hampshire Show
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
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 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.
[special note: I'm lucky enough to share the night and venue with
Peter Aguero and the WORLD FAMOUS BTK Band.
They set up when my show ends and rock the house beginning at around 9:15pm]
