Adam Wade re-imagines his stories, with “Kittycats as People”

If you haven’t heard Adam Wade tell a story from his life, then you really must one of these days or nights.

Wade is an 18-time winner of The Moth‘s StorySLAM. His tales often look back upon his romantic idealism and how it conflicts with and yet still manages to overcome the dirty realism of life. For the first time, Wade has re-imagined one of his stories in drawings, and he has replaced all of the people in his story with kittycats. Kittycats? Sure, why not. In this story, Wade tells us about a different and difficult roommate he had during his sophomore year in college, and the secrets they kept from one another. Secrets!

Roll it.

Adam Wade’s monthly “Adam Wade from New Hampshire” storytelling comedy show happens in New York City on the second Monday of each month at Theatre Under St. Marks — which in September is tonight.
