ABOUT THE SHOW
The Accidental Pervert is a laugh-out-loud play that tells the uproarious and yet poignant story of a boy’s journey into manhood after discovering his dad’s X-rated video tapes hidden in a bedroom closet. Follow our hero’s addiction to pornography as he struggles to find the balance between fantasy and reality. Acclaimed performer and comedian Andrew Goffman takes you on a whirlwind tour of his funny romance with smut magazines, video vixens, and off-color fantasies while you roll in the aisles. But it’s not only laughs in this layered, multi-dimensional show, which culminates in a touching moment of redemption as he struggles to find true love and perspective through real-life relationships.
The Accidental Pervert has eclipsed over 1,200 performances in the legendary Greenwich Village area of New York. It made its world debut in 2005 in Times Square, New York City. It is now enjoying a multitude of licensing deals by various international producers, theaters, and television/film celebrities playing the role of The Pervert world wide.
