Adam Newman, 'Jew Versus the Volcano'

Adam Newman - Jew Versus the Volcano (6000 x 6000 300dpi).jpg

Adam Newman is back with a new hour of comedy and this time he's brought his guitar. Music! Magic! Horses! Butt stuff! This hour has it all. Blonde Medicine is releasing Jew Versus The Volcano, Newman’s 5th hour of stand-up and his third on the label. It will be released on double vinyl, as a digital comedy album available wherever comedy is streamed or sold, and on Blonde Medicine’s YouTube channel. The special was filmed at Hotbed Comedy Club in Washington, DC. 


Jew Versus The Volcano is loosely structured into three acts. The first offering a classic stand-up check-in about where he’s at now: recently married, traveled, barreling out of a pandemic. The second act is the age-old tale about losing one’s virginity, featuring an appearance by REM’s Mike Mills and a visit to the emergency room. The third and final act brings us to what Adam Newman has been planning all along: coming out as a (gulp) guitar comedian, offering up catchy songs about everyone’s least favorite dictator and…ham. 


As of February 23rd, Jew Versus The Volcano can be pre-ordered on vinyl or as a digital album and fans can opt in with the “Notify Me” button on YouTube to ensure they don’t miss the premiere. The digital album and special are out on March 22, and vinyl orders will begin to ship in June.

He has his own Comedy Central Half Hour and an hour special on Amazon called Fuzzies.
