Andrew Goffman Becomes The Accidental Pervert, Feb. 2-24

The Triad Theater will present a limited engagement of The Accidental Pervert, a comedic solo show written and performed by Andrew Goffman, and directed by Charles Messina. Performances will run from February 2, 2006 to February 24, 2006 at The Triad Theater (158 West 72nd St.), and 10% of the proceeds from the show will go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

"The Accidental Pervert is an unexpectedly warmhearted one-man show about a
boy's coming of age via a childhood studded with perpetual pornography. When young Andrew happens upon his father's collection of pornographic videotapes, it sparks an addiction to pornography that affects the way he sees women, sexuality and himself. Only when he later falls in love and has a daughter is he able to challenge his views," according to press notes.

"Goffman takes his audience on a hilarious and self-deprecating journey into his world of video vixens, shocking pictorials, and an array of X-Rated fantasies, illuminating his struggle to define what it means to be a man, from puberty into adulthood.

Goffman has been touring the comedy circuit since 1997, performing in over 150 comedy clubs including: Caroline's, Catch A Rising Star, The Comic Strip, Rascals and across the border in Canada's popular Yuk Yuks. As an actor, he has appeared in such films as The First Wives Club and the independent comedy, The Stand In. On stage, he has performed at New York's Soho Playhouse in the Off-Broadway hit Grandma Sylvia's Funeral.

Messina is best known for his work on the Off-Broadway hit Cirque Jacqueline, the one-woman show about the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Messina also directed and penned the Off-Broadway hit monodrama Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God, about the life of rocker Freddie Mercury. Currently, Messina is directing the musical Be My Love, about the tragic life of legendary tenor Mario Lanza, which is being produced by Sonny Grosso and Phil Ramone
