Adam Wade’s unique audio memoir You Ought to Know Adam Wade was released in January 2020 and was produced by Audible (audible.com/adamwade). It was the #1 new release in the Performing Arts category on both Audible and Amazon for 4 straight weeks. His debut storytelling/comedy album Adam Wade: The Human Comedy was enthusiastically lauded in Sarah Larson’s profile of Adam in The New Yorker. An inimitable fixture in both the New York City storytelling and comedy scenes, Adam is the winner of 20 SLAMS at The Moth. He has toured across North America with The Moth Main Stage and his stories have appeared on The Moth Radio Hour, The Moth Podcast, and the PBS television show Stories from the Stage. He has also acted on HBO’s Girls and Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer.
Ophira Eisenberg hosts NPR’s nationally syndicated comedy, trivia show Ask Me Another where she interviews and plays silly games with Sir Patrick Stewart, Taye Diggs, Awkwafina, Roxane Gay, Terry Crews, Jessica Walter, Josh Groban, Nick Kroll, Tony Hawk, George Takei, Sasha Velour, Ethan Hawke, Julia Stiles, Lewis Black, Uzo Aduba, Michael C. Hall and more. She is a regular host and teller on The Moth Radio Hour. Her stories have also been included in two of The Moth’s best-selling collections, including the most recent: Occasional Magic: True Stories About Defying the Impossible. Ophira’s own comedic memoir, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy was optioned for a feature film. She has appeared on Comedy Central, This Week At The Comedy Cellar, The New Yorker Festival, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, HBO’s Girls, Gotham Live, The Late Late Show, The Today Show, and VH-1. Her comedy special Inside Joke is available on Amazon and iTunes.
Peter Aguero was born and raised in the wilds of South Jersey. He’s been working with The Moth since 2007 as a storyteller, instructor, and host. His solo show “Daddy Issues” has played the far reaches and middle grounds of North America, mostly to acclaim (except for one guy in Fresno, CA. That guy hated it). He spends most of his time listening to The Allman Brothers
while making weaponized profane ceramics in Queens.
