Coming to Australia to perform his More Than Loud tour to Sydney and Melbourne audiences is Orny Adams, whose fan base consists of big names like Jerry Seinfield, Garry Shandling and more.
When it comes to his no BS comedy, Orny explained, “I like to go after what’s bothering me on sort of a micro level. So, I can tell you what I don’t discuss, politics, religious references and sport. I’m fascinated by bad customer service, bad experiences, technology, young people vs old people. Stuff that I think resonates with the audience”
Orny has performed on late night shows, Jay Leno and Conan O’Brian, has toured stand-up and played a role on MTV’s Teen Wolf. When asked if he was ever able to improvise he replied, “A little bit. I got away with a lot more than the other actors. The guy who developed the show, Jeff Davis, had seen me do stand-up several times and was a fan of my work, so he created the character ‘Coach’ for me. A lot of the time though I was sticking to the script, which was really well written. I’m also coming to Australia for a convention featuring Teen Wolf”.
Reaching a language barrier asking Orny, why should the good folks of Sydney come to the show? We finally got there with the response, “I’m not here to make people come to the show, I want to see people who are enthusiastic and excited to see some comedy”.
If you aren’t familiar with Orny’s work, check it out. A hilariously entertaining guy worth the attendance.
