Adam Rowe: Pinnacle (CKP and Intertalent)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2019

“This show is my opinion and I suppose you should all just appreciate it,” says Adam Rowe, who finds it mandatory to justify his rather contentious comments. At 27, Rowe has hit the peak of his life, but his mind is occupied as he wanders onto topics such as obesity and celebrities in hot water. His potent focus on the public’s morality begs the question: do we still admire our heroes amid mass controversy, or are we going to be hypocritical and make exceptions? His broad show contains razor-sharp delivery, but sets aside any arrogance with a good dose of Liverpudlian self-deprecation. And, without being platitudinous, it is almost safe to say the title represents his current form.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug.
