The Accidental Pervert...Still Rock Hard

In the words of the show's star, Andrew Goffman, ""The Accidental Pervert" will make you laugh, will make you cry, and will make you hard!" That is exactly how I felt on Friday, July 22, when I once again took in the hit Off-Broadway show "The Accidental Pervert" that has now moved to it's new home at 13th Street Repertory Theatre in NYC. This show is still rock hard with laughter, heart, and most of all 90 minutes of utter enjoyment!

Written by and starring Andrew Goffman and directed by Charles Messina, "The Accidental Pervert" tells the true story of an 11-year-old boy who discovered his father's pornography collection in a bedroom closet, just to the right of his golf clubs, above the cowboy boots, behind the sweatshirts, all the way up in the top left hand corner and how this discovery controlled his life until he was 26, the year he met his wife!

Andrew's script is still smart, funny, and touching, while Charles has done another excellent job in directing/staging "The Accidental Pervert" in their new space at the 13th Street Repertory Theatre. The intimate feeling that I experienced at The Players Theatre where this show played previously (click here for my previous review) is still here because Andrew engages with the audience at various moments in the show. Whether he is ad libbing or dancing in the aisle, Andrew uses the space he has to bring everyone together. With a background in stand-up comedy, Andrew really commands the stage and keeps the audience focused on him.

What made me want to come back and see this show again is the honesty, boldness, and humor of "The Accidental Pervert." Andrew has taken a topic that is not often talked about publicly, yet experienced often, and he's putting it out there to start a discussion. With all the humorous moments in the show, there are quite a few touching moments intertwined. Two of the most heartfelt moments come when Andrew talks about his dad's passing and just how that affected him and the moment he met his wife. It's these moments and a few others that give this show its heart and the realization that no one starts out to be a "pervert," sometimes it just happens, but everyone has the power to change their life.

Andrew and Charles make a great team in putting this show together! Andrew's book, Charles' direction compliment each other seamlessly. They both have used their talent to bring a "taboo" topic out in the open. I hope audiences continue to come and experience this smart and hilarious heartfelt show!

Come pack the 13th Street Repertory Theatre (50 West 13th Street, between 5th & 6th Avenue) Friday and Saturday nights at 7pm through December 10 to see "The Accidental Pervert" and enjoy a rousing evening of humor, heart, and 100% pure pleasure! Click here for tickets and follow them on Facebook and Twitter (@AccidentalPerv)!

In the US, dating is very commonplace among both seniors and juniors. While in some cases, dating helps to find your ultimate match, it can occasionally just be a way of socialization. If you are a senior, and planning to date once again after a reasonably long time, it can leave you perturbed. This may also be the case if it's your first date.-Tag Heuer Working Chronograph luxury men watches

I agree that this was the funniest show I've seen in awhile. I recommend going to see it if you're wanting to spend almost two hours doing nothing but laughing. :)
