In an interview with comedy website Yuletide Snapper, Adira Amram, New York City’s most lovable spazz, said she got her start as a singer/dancer/comedian doing “weird whatever” at an open-mic night. After putting together a crew of backup dancers and musicians (known as the Experience), that “weird whatever” quickly evolved into the sparkly, ’80s-inspired, spandex-laden stage shows that made her Best Musical Comedy Act at the 2011 ECNY awards. Tonight, at Adira Amram and the Experience’s Dance-Party Fantasy, she’ll have you doing her naughty signature dance move (the “FingerBlast”) to songs about making out, her “tiny vagina,” and getting high with her mom. With Heloise.
