About the show

This new comedy about a newly single gay man examines the chaos of gay dating culture, skewers our need for social media, and explores the challenges of navigating an entirely new dating world. More…

Adam and Josh have been together for eight years... but now they’re not, and everyone has an opinion. In "Adam Minus Josh," Adam attempts to figure out what’s next with some help from his oddball neighbor Will, profligate friend Jordan, and suburban sister Rachel.

Boy Culture

"I just laughed my ass off at a performance of 'Adam Minus Josh,' a potent original comedy about gay dating by Dan Fingerman that's like evolved Neil Simon through a 'Mean Girls' prism...Reid's character is a bit too weird for me when first introduced, but there's more balance to him soon thereafter...The four actors have undeniable chemistry, keeping up with each other at a farcical speed, allowing Fingerman's breathlessly adroit use of language to shine."
