One of the most exciting young acts in the UK – 26 year-old Liverpudlian comedian Adam Rowe is set to tour the UK this Autumn. This follows an Edinburgh Festival run for the 3rd consecutive year with his uncompromising, brutally honest stand-up style. His brand new show ‘Undeniable’ will premiere at Just The Tonic’s largest venue the Big Cave for the month of August before touring the UK, Ireland & USA.
He had a total sell out at last years Fringe as well as a sell-out UK tour with his show ‘Unbearable’, both of which were entirely self-produced. Although a hidden gem – fans turned up in their droves being turned away with queues around the block!
What does it takes to become undeniably good at what you do? His new show ‘Undeniable’ takes a close look at how your background, class, race, sociological issues, mental health and personality all either hinder or aid your journey for that title. He thinks you can turn (what seems to be) your biggest weakness into your biggest strength.
The show looks at how prejudice, whilst often an abhorrent trait, is part of human nature and how it can be used in a very positive way. Sometimes tunnel visioned, determination & self-belief can often be mistaken for arrogance & selfishness. Are those things truly necessary to become Undeniable?
Adam was raised by an alcoholic single parent in one of the roughest areas of Liverpool after, almost single handedly, splitting up his parents at the age of 10. However, his combative & positive nature refuses to let this start in life hold him back. He’s determined to take the lessons he’s learned & characteristics he’s developed from these circumstances, and use them to get absolutely everything he wants from life. This is an inspiring & uplifting show about how you can achieve anything you want, regardless of where & what background you come from.
His online stand-up clips have been amassed over 50 million views in total over the past year, earning him fans all over the globe. He’s been featured by Ladbible, Unilad, Comedy Central & is a regular contributor to Liverpool Football Club’s fan channel – The Redmen TV.
“…There’s nothing I’ve ever wanted more than to be a touring comedian, so this is literally the most exciting thing that could ever happen to me. I feel really, really lucky to be getting an opportunity like this as it’s usually only comics who have a wealth of TV appearances behind them that get the chance to do a tour of this size and I haven’t had any TV exposure yet. This is all only possible due to people watching and sharing videos of my stand-up online, which is really cool and something that I’m extremely grateful for. I’m really proud of this new show and I just want as many people to come out and see it as possible. It’s about my insecurities, but you’d have to really over analyse it to see that. On the face of it, it’s an hour of opinionated, brutally honest stand-up about my working class background, growing up in Liverpool and the last year of my life. Come see it, it’s going to be boss.” ADAM ROWE
