Orny Adams is relentless, as his latest Showtime special, More Than Loud, demonstrates. “I think it’s from working the road so much,” he says. “I’m nonstop in front of audiences so I feel like I have to grab their attention, keep it, and I’m constantly fighting. They’re trying to get a drink or the check just came. If I had down time in my act, I would lose my energy and lose my enthusiasm.” Onstage these days he’s mixing material from his special with newer bits. Fans seem to like the balance. “Fans love when I do the old stuff they’ve seen,” he says. “It’s exciting for them and it’s really interesting. I’ve never experienced anything like this. People are coming to see me because they’ve seen me in something standup related.” While he’s still edgy in his performance, Adams’ outrage now seems to come from a place of confidence. “I think that comes with age,” he notes. “I think as you get older you don’t care what people think about you. I’m fearless of failing. I’ve taken my act all over the world, and it’s more relaxed now than it’s ever been.” 16+ later shows.
