Imps in the USA: Improv rap
On our tour of the USA, the Imps stopped at my alma-mater for a blowout show with my old improv group, Quipfire!. We played to over 800 people at McCarter, but I mostly rapped about dumb stuff like art.

The Psychology of Humor
Princeton made this video in which I stand on the set of "Rent" and appear to deny evolution. Also we never really talk about my specific humor research, but I do an excellent job at doing a poor job at describing other people's humor research.
PUN AND GAMES: Adam's Pun Challenge Compilation

Small Town Boy
"No Comet" (HD) from ZERO GRAVITAS
One of the last things I ever wrote for the Triangle Club (featured in the 2014 show Zero Gravitas), and one of the dearest to my heart. It's the most satisfied I've ever been with a sketch, which is to say, only mildly dissatisfied.

Originally written for Zero Gravitas (2014), this sketch was repurposed for Must Be '18 or Older to Enter, the following fall's frosh week show. The main improvement: instead of looking like aliens, which makes the whole sketch make more sense, the characters instead look like guys wearing black dildos on their heads.
