Come On! We’re All Adults! is a collection of solo pieces by Patrick Raynor, who was recently featured at the TBS Just For Laughs Festival in Alone: Chicago’s Best Solo Acts. Every hilarious scene is grounded, earnest, and rich in detail. Raynor shows off his acting chops by patiently investing in the reality of each character’s world. Whether its a hermit emerging from the wilderness to re-enter society, a love-struck South Dakotan imploring his girlfriend not to leave on that plane to New York, or an arsonist/amateur ornithologist enthusiastically leading the bird-watching club at his maximum security prison, Raynor treats every absurdity with respect. With direction by Joe Avella (Teenager of the Year), Come On! We’re All Adults! is subtly deranged solo performance not to be missed!
Wednesdays @ 9:30pm, February 1 through 22, 2012.
The Annoyance Theatre & Bar, 4830 N Broadway (just north of Lawrence Ave), Chicago, IL 60640.

Patrick Raynor: not as creepy as his poster.
