James Adomian COMEDY ADJACENT TOUR 2015

image

ADOMANIACS REJOICE: This summer I’m hitting up the raddest cities in North America - that also happen to be easy for me to visit during a breakneck regimen of writing and debauchery here in Los Angeles. (As always I am a gay, so please bring one homosexual for every homophobe in your party just to balance out the audience for all these shows.)

OMAHA: Born and raised there for two months in 1980, returning in 2015 to see what’s up. Crom Comedy Festival THIS SUNDAY 5/24 has me at two aptly titled shows: Dungeon and Babe Island! Excellent all-around festival lineup if you happen to dislike me personally for some reason.

SEATTLE: Pride week comedy showcase Out & In TUE 6/23 at the sumptuous Neptune Theatre with Nick Sahoyah, Elicia Sanchez and Caitlin Weierhauser! Tix only $15 if you get off your ass and get them any time before showing up at the door the day of. (Notice: not currently as hot as this poster image.)

image

PORTLAND: Did you know it’s now illegal to perform in Seattle without also doing a show in Portland the same week? Personally I thank Ron Wyden for that. Anyway, I’ll be at the Doug Fir Lounge THU 6/25 for Hella Feller with Nick Sahoyah, Bri Pruett, Caitlin Weierhauser and Trevor Thorpe. Tix only $12!!!

image

EUGENE: I will be making my Eugene, Oregon DEBUT at Wow Hall FRI 6/26! Please come welcome me and show me where all the bad shit is. Featuring Nick Sahoyah and Caitlin Weierhauser - advance tix only $15!

CHICAGO: Why not? I love your damn city anytime but somehow only been there once before under life-supporting weather conditions. So I’m excited to summer at the Chicago Comedy Exposition SAT 7/11 with Phoebe Robinson + more shows all weekend. Great festival lineup so get a pass you idiots!

image

SILICON VALLEY: Saw me at SXSW Interactive? Medium to positive memory of this experience? Get a full yottabyte of JAdo processing power for an entire weekend of five shows at Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale THU 7/30 - SUN 8/2!

image

SAN FRANCISCO: If you can pry me away from my midsummer hallucinations long enough I’ll be at Outside Lands festival FRI 8/7 - SUN 8/9! They promise Music, Food, Wine, Beer, Art, Comedy - so please experience everything in that order and show up to my shows like drunken little macaroni salads!

PS: If you’re in Los Angeles I do a lot of shows here big and small and the best way to find out about them is to follow me on twitter @JAdomian no matter how annoying that might get.
