While in Montreal, Whitney and I took time out from out tour to chat to my favourite local Podcast Edge Of The City! We talked about the tour, Trampoline and played some very serious dice game. You can listen to the entire thing HERE!

A few new Trampoline Reviews

14 05 2014

There’s been some lovely reviews popping up around Montreal (and one from our recent Perth season) that I thought I’d share.  We still have three shows left May 14, 16 and 17 at Mainline Theatre, tickets available ONLINE or at the door!

“Adamczak’s trademark lighthearted humour will appreciate an interesting change of pace as this dark comedy reveals moments of real heartbreak… But that’s not to say your face won’t hurt from laughing as you leave the theatre. Layered and touching, Trampoline is a gorgeous piece of theatre you won’t soon forget.” -Bloody Underrated

“This is a well written and cleverly acted play that will delight and amuse but also make you questions your notions of normal” – The Australian Times

“Adamczak again displays his natural ability to completely immerse himself in his characters and draw the audience into his world. Along with the equally excellent performances by Stevie and Vance  the play is both touching and hilarious.” – Culture Plus

What’s the haps

24 07 2013

With only a few weeks left in Montreal before I head over to the Edmonton Fringe and then back to Australia for the debut production of my new show TRAMPOLINE, I’ve been pretty busy as always. Check out SHOW DATES for more info on upcoming performances!

I just finished my Zoofest season of Let’s Start A Country, which was, as always, a lot of fun. The organisation of the festival was a bit of a shit-show and I doubt I’d want to do it again, but our shows went well, got good crowds and there’s heap of great shows still playing that I highly recommend checking out. (Die Roten Punkte, The Progressive Polygamists, Kuwaiti Moonshine, The Birdmann, Underbelly and Slut (r)evolution to name just a few).

I am currently interviewing/reviewing a bunch of acts for the Just For Laughs Festival for Bloody Underrated, which has also been a blast so far. Much more to come this week too!





GAZETTE ARTICLE.

13 06 2013

I was recently interviewed by Pat Donnelly recent for the main Montreal Newspaper, The Gazette. We talked about my upcoming Fringe Show, my move to Montreal and why I’m so “Hyperactive”…

“This theatrically hyperactive native of Perth, Australia, has spent the last year in Montreal, becoming something of a fixture in the independent theatre scene as well as the local improv comedy circuit…”

It was a pretty cool article…read the full thing HERE.

The 13th Hour!

30 05 2013

Montreal Fringe has always been my favourite “Party Fringe” and a big part of that is the late-night variety show The 13th Hour! A crazy 1am show with different guests, games, drinking and a whole lotta dancing! In 2008, Weeping Spoon partied super hard there and even ended up DJ’ing a bunch of nights, I even filled in one night for Rufus (The 13th Hour on-stage-Intern) and we even took out the 13th Hour Award that year! So, I am BEYOND excited and freakin’ honoured to have been asked to be one of the host of the show this year!

Oh man, this is gonna be a hella of a lot of fun.

13th hour hosts!
