Instead, imagine that you go to work at a new place every day, with new coworkers, and even though the work is basically the same, the tools you have to perform that work constantly change and may be unavailable. You are evaluated by the same metric at each location, though the evaluation is always performed by a new group using their own rules, and sometimes that group is rip-snorting drunk. Some days you get paid. Some days you’re there as a volunteer. Some days you’re only there to improve the quality of your work for future days, and some days your best-quality work is ignored.

Adam Ruben is a writer, comedian, and storyteller. He is the author of Surviving Your Stupid, Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School (Random House, 2010), appears Saturday nights at 9:00 PM on the Science Channel’s Outrageous Acts of Science, and is a storytelling teacher with SpeakeasyDC. Adam amazed audiences with his first Cap Fringe solo show in 2011, Please Don’t Beat Me Up: Stories and Artifacts from Adolescence, which was called “compelling and hilarious” by the Washington Post and named one of the top five solo shows of 2011 by Maryland Theatre Guide. His follow-up show in 2012, Dr. Science’s Science Time Science-va-ganza!, sold out its run and was called “the funniest production I have experience at Cap Fringe” by DC Metro Theatre Arts. In 2013, Adam missed the deadline to turn in his Fringe forms. In 2014, Adam had a second child. Now he’s back in 2015 with a brand-new solo show!
