About this event
“LADY ADHD” leaps from the perpetual-motion mind of comedian, quirky genius, and overall rather loud person, Blaire Postman,
Part Stand Up, part Ted Talk, this triumphant one-person show combines her signature flip chart stand-up comedy pieces with running commentary about her life with long-undiagnosed ADHD, and some lessons learned where the two intersect.
“LADY ADHD” is an unexpected, high-energy tour inside the comic’s brain, including a deeper look at the unusual patterns and connections she sees in ordinary things that go unnoticed by most of us, and how that ability can make everyday items and experiences entertaining, fun and, occasionally, even revelatory – if sometimes chaotic.
Since its mid-pandemic debut on June 30, 2021, “LADY ADHD” is now and is an official selection to be part of the 20th SF Sketchfest, and a monthly in-residence show at CAVEAT theater in New York. The show has toured cities including Washington, DC; Richmond, VA; Asheville, NC; Gaithersburg, MD; Raleigh, NC; Boston, MA, Baltimore and beyond.
It’s next stop is a one-year anniversary performance where it all began: Silver Spring Blackbox Theater in downtown Silver Spring, MD.
As an exciting extra for this special performance of LADY ADHD, Dr. Melissa Dvorsky, Director of the ADHD & Learning Differences Program at Children’s National Hospital, and all-around expert on most things ADHD, will be joining us for “The LADY ADHD Unfocused Group” post-show audience chat immediately following. It’s free to anyone who cares to stick around after the show to have some ADHD-related questions answered, or just want to commiserate.
As one reviewer noted of LADY ADHD: “Imagine if all the open tabs on your computer from a weekend of spiraling down Wikipedia rabbit holes were then woven into a cogent and brutally funny theory about the brain, art, aging, Americana and The Self.”
