Adam Ferrara Gets Portland In Gear
July 25, 2013, 4:07 pm
Comedian and co-host of the History Channel’s Top Gear Adam Ferrara
joined guest host Fletcher Johnson Thursday afternoon on The Bald Faced Truth to talk about his career as well as his upcoming appearance at Helium Comedy Club
“I had done another car show for the History Channel that didn’t get picked up. They called me and said that they had the rights for [Top Gear]. It was the weirdest audition I’ve ever had. We met in a parking lot like it was a ransom drop.”
In addition to co-hosting Top Gear, Ferrara is a stand-up comedy veteran.
“I pretty much just take my life, examine it, and make it funny. I talk about Top Gear, I’m on Nurse Jackie so I talk about that too. I suffered for my art, so now it’s your turn.”
Ferrara said that he sometimes enjoys localizing his act.
“You’ll have some observations coming into the city. I just did a show in Detroit, where they just declared bankruptcy- that’s five minutes right there.”
Adam Ferrara appears at Helium Comedy Club July 25th-27th.
Tickets are available via the Helium website
