David Crowe returns to the Acme this week, where he plans to record a special. His current set is inspired by his eight-year-old daughter. “The show is a collection of crazy, weird, and uncomfortable coming-of-age stories,” he explains, “as told by a father who is worried about giving his child the tools to maybe do a better job heading into the world than he did.” The tales Crowe tells span the globe. Some take place in Russia and in the United Arab Emirates, and there are many from the U.S. “I did a rough draft of the show for some people, and it got very positive feedback,” he says. Some even told Crowe it was helpful. “That’s the last thing I thought standup comedy could do,” he laughs. 18+.
