What People Are Saying About Adam Sank:
"One of the city’s most celebrated gay comedy kings."
Edge New York
"The handsomest, hardest working man in the comedy biz."
"The side-splittingly funny and staggeringly handsome (he bellyaches immediately if we don’t say that) Adam Sank is back."
Gay City News
"Wonderfully funny... It was undoubtedly clear that Sank's comedic timing and delivery had everyone laughing."
"San Diego just got funnier."
San Diego Performer Magazine
"Between the two comedians, the $5 Manhattans and some airman in the back who was unwittingly offering himself up as fodder for Sank, the crowd was experiencing full-on fits of laughter. In fact, one audience member completely lost control as his chair slipped from beneath him and he hit the floor. Hard."
Exit Zero Magazine (Cape May, NJ)
"Most gay comics latch on to their sexual preference as a way to stand out (pun intended) from the crowd. But far too many dont go beyond the obvious stereotypes. Sank does, and he seems to prefer comics with unique voices."
Chelsea Now (NYC)
"Adam Sank is the nicest, funniest, brightest, young man I know. Having him perform at my club, Danny's Upstairs on the East Coast, was the highlight of our season. Born to be a star -- and will be. Get back soon, Adam. I miss you!"
Danny Aiello, Academy Award-Nominated Actor
"Adam is really a rare find -- an incredibly funny, current and smart comic. His humor speaks to a wide and varied demographic as he has a true gift for connecting with his audience. It doesn’t hurt that he’s a pleasure to work with… and look at."
John Meyers, Former General Manager, Comix
"Who is this guy, and where did he come from? Adam Sank is funny, refreshing and very real. Mark your calendar when he comes through your town."
Doc, MikDago Productions
"Adam Sank really is a trailblazer and should be very proud of the path he has created, and the opportunity he has opened up for other gay comedians."
Jason Scarlatti, Creative Director, 2(x)ist
"Handsome and witty Adam Sank runs one of the best comedy shows in New York. He's always a pleasure to work with, but I do wish he'd take my advice and get a boyfriend named Steve. It would be perfect for his act."
Bob Smith, First Openly Gay Comic to Appear on "The Tonight Show"
"Have Adam Sank back. It was professionally impressive that he stayed and got naked, too."
Member Survey, 2010 GNI Retreat
"Even though we are frequently the source -- if not the butt -- of our son's humor, we love him and his comedy. But how about some new material?"
Phyllis Sank, Adam's Mother
Comedian Adam Sank (& BFFs) get naked for laughs
Comedian Adam Sank’s plush white towel hits the black stage slightly before he intends it to and he’s suddenly plunged headlong in that nightmare we all had in high school: standing naked in front of a crowded classroom full of our peers. But in this case, Sank is not en face de homeroom, but rather center stage at Daniel Nardicio’s Playgirl Mansion for the latest debauch on Manhattan’s PG-13 nightlife landscape.
The party is called Dirty Laundry, but there isn’t much laundry--dirty or otherwise--on the line. Instead, a series of gay male stand-up comics take the stage, fairly limited sartorially as their towels must also drop somewhere at the top of their act so they can also perform nude. Stage gear is pretty much limited to athletic or dress socks: a two-tone pair from Nasty Pig is as avant-garde as the wardrobe department can get.
"That wasn’t supposed to happen yet," Sank laughs, looking down at his towel atop the two-foot high stage. But he gives his unit a quick fluff, does a 360 degree rotation to rousing applause from the packed house and launches into his act Within the first 30 seconds of his material, Sank reveals his preferred sexual role, as, indeed, all the comics do at the top of their act. Queer sexual politics hasn’t been this transparent since the gay hanky code.
