"The Accidental Pervert is the true accounting of one boy's odyssey to manhood via a childhood dominated by pornography. This show is a one-man tour de force that will have women and men laughing at the whole experience...with an ending that is realistic and full of heart. The Accidental Pervert leaves us satisfied and complete." Full Review
"There is a serious play buried deep inside The Accidental Pervert but Andrew Goffman is content to gently sideswipe the profound points of his story and go for laughs instead. And there are plenty of laughs, although his self-deprecating comedy is fundamentally built on a single joke." Full Review
"It is a bold, honest, unique, taboo-breaking, laugh filled evening of Mr. Goffman exposing his private inner porno life after discovering his dad’s secret stash of sex tapes hidden in the back of the closet which gave him a tainted view of women until he met his wife and fathered a daughter." Full Review
"What makes it a show that continues to draw people in? Goffman has a manner about him that is warm as well as funny, making the audience feel like they are on this journey with him. They root for him during the show." Full Review
"An amusing and surprisingly touching one-man show; Goffman is a fine comedian and successfully sells a quirky script with an ease and a charm that allow the play to be engaging longer than it has the right to be...The play that started out as little more than a masturbation monologue, turned into something much more fulfilling." Full Review
"He speaks directly to the audience, animatedly recounting with a dose of humility, charm and self-deprecating humor, how porn took over his life, warped his image of women and set him up for the most unrealistic expectations...In the end, the show finds its heart and while drama does not seem to come as naturally to him, he succeeds in taking the audience in some unexpected directions." Full Review
"The Accidental Pervert runs 90 minutes, which feels about 30 minutes too long, especially while seated on a folding chair, but Goffman is active and enthusiastic for every bit. No matter what, Goffman has to be given credit for going where few have gone before, and applying humor to a life situation that we can all identify with, even if we ordinarily keep it secret." Full Review
"This show is still rock hard with laughter, heart, and most of all 90 minutes of utter enjoyment! With all the humorous moments in the show, there are quite a few touching moments intertwined. These heartfelt moments give this show its heart." Full Review
See it if you are a male chauvenist pig and only think with the "little brain".
Don't see it if if you have any taste at all. Disgusting show, bottom of the list (and I've seen a lot of shows).
See it if I'm all for being a master of one's domain, but, I'm not really a fan of solo shows... I saw it in a small venue, like no more than 25 seats
Don't see it if Hate sex talk, perversion, small, possibly hot, space, non-musicals, or solo shows...
See it if You don't have problem with a man masturbating on the stage.
Don't see it if If you don't have a babysitter, & you want to bring the kid(s) along with you for a night of G-Rated theater -- This ain't that kinda show.
See it if Enjoy raunchy humor,straight man humor who puts 100% of himself in the show.
Don't see it if If you don't like audience participation, seeing a man in his boxers or jokes about sex.
See it if You've had a few drinks before the show. You want to see a play where you don't have to think too hard. You want a stand-up comedy routine.
Don't see it if You value good acting & writing. You dislike it when performers talk with the audience. You want a quality production.

Don't see it if If easily offended by racy language and sexual topics
See it if your sense of humor hasn't matured since the 5th grade.
Don't see it if you have any taste at all, if you have any sense of humor at all, if you have any respect for the theatre... or yourself.
See it if you like an unusual confessional about how an obsession nearly destroyed the actor's life, amiable host, serious underpinnings
Don't see it if you expect something quite substantial, don't like miniscule audience participation, want more thorough plot line
See it if you enjoy raunchy humor (i.e. Avenue Q), like intimate setting/theater, & don't expect much more than comedy.
Don't see it if you're looking for depth or if your grandparents are in town. Overall, it's just a strange, awkward (& not in a funny way) show.
See it if You're looking for some lighthearted, raunchy laughs- especially if you're concerned about your own porn habits.
Don't see it if If you're overly sensitive to highly sexualized material, or if you're looking for a deeper understanding of unhealthy sexual habits.
