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.
