Adam Ferrara, the Stand-Up Comedian and Actor who Entertainment Weekly dubbed “Hilarious,” presently hosts the critically acclaimed BBC sensation, Top Gear US, airing on HISTORY.
Additionally, Adam is an internationally touring headliner, two-time nominee for best male stand-up by the American Comedy Awards, and has three Comedy Central Specials.
Ferrara proudly played Chief Needles Nelson on the Emmy® nominated FX drama Rescue Me, with Denis Leary and Frank Verelli on Showtime’s hit series Nurse Jackie, opposite Emmy® Award winner Edie Falco. He has also co-starred alongside Kevin James in the hit movie Paul Blart:Mall Cop and in Definitely Maybe with Ryan Reynolds and Isla Fisher.

Apart from opening for his comedy idol, George Carlin, and performing at Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall and The Apollo Theater, Ferrara was asked to perform at a benefit for the President and all of the Senators. Stuck in traffic on the way to the event, Ferrara quipped, “I’m still moving faster than Congress.”

The first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows. Early shows are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you get to the club, the better your seat will be. Late shows have assigned seating by time of ticket purchase. The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be.
DOOR TIMES: Doors usually open at 6:30 when the early show is at 8. (When the early show is at 7, we open at 6.) Seating for late shows usually begins 30 minutes before showtime. If you purchased tickets to a late show and would like to be seated together with another party, call the Improv at 202-296-7008 and inform us ahead of time.
