It seems that comedian Adam Hunter really wants to give you, the comedy fan, your money's worth. "It's definitely fast-paced," he says, describing his act. "As many jokes per minute as I can possibly fit into a set. It's fun, a little edgy—you're definitely going to laugh. There's a lot of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll; some stories; and a lot of crowd interaction." His favorite subject out of that mish-mash? Sex, of course. "I just find sex to be very funny," he states. "I've been in numerous ridiculously failed relationships, I'd like to stress that. Comedy is very therapeutic to me. I like to be as honest and open as I possibly can." Comedy has indeed helped him cope. His mother left when he was three, and his father was a drug and gambling addict. "It was that lack of attention and wanting to fit in, seeking the approval of others that led me into standup comedy." But it wasn't until after hosting a TV show in college that he had that eureka moment, and headed to New York City to do standup. Finding gigs, even in the Big Apple, was a challenge. "I would do comedy anywhere," he insists. "Laundromat, doughnut shop, whatever. I felt that if I worked really hard I would get good at it. I've done comedy every single night since." 18+; 21+ later shows.
