Naughtyham: An Improvised Robin Hood Tale
Time: 10:30pm - 11:30pm
James Adomian stars as The Sheriff of NAUGHTYHAM: An Improvised Robin Hood Tale
ONE NIGHT ONLY
James Adomian returns to Comedy Bar to take on the role of a lifetime, The Sheriff of Naughtyham. Directed by two time Canadian Comedy Award nominee Darryl Pring, Naughtyham: An Improvised Robin Hood Tale will be chalked full of the merriest men and one of the baddest villains of them all, The Sheriff. In his critically acclaimed debut album Low Hanging Fruit, Adomian references The Sheriff of Nottingham as his 'favourite gay villian' (youtube.com/watch?v=KFyo9b4_6iY ). After listening to this hilarious observation, local comedy producer Ian Atlas of Empire Comedy Live had an idea. It would be great to see James Adomian play the sheriff live. Atlas approached Darryl Pring, who's created such improvised hits as Doctor Whom and the most recent sold out parody Whedonesque and Naughtyham was born.
James Adomian will be bolstered by the very best improvisers in the country that include Second City veterans Jan Caruana, Nigel Downer and Alastair Forbes. Rounding out this stellar cast is Roger Bainbridge (Tony Ho), David Dineen-Porter (Laugh Sabbath), Ken Hall (2 Man No Show), Liz Johnston (Whedonesque), Mike 'Nug' Nahrgang (Evil Dead The Musical) and Rob Norman (Mantown).
James Adomian was a top-10 finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" and is a frequent guest on Comedy Bang Bang and other wild podcasts. He performs stand-up and characters live at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and festivals, theatres, gay bars, party schools and radical political events across North America. Set phasers to "chill!" He performs sketch comedy and improv with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and was a member of the Groundlings Sunday Company. James appears as President Bush in the upcoming features "Recount" (directed by Jay Roach) and "Harold & Kumar 2," as well as frequent appearances on the "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and Comedy Central's "Mind of Mencia."
