Will Abeles, Comedian
Across his performance, Abeles focuses on an overarching theme: adulthood kind of sucks. From having multiple jobs to just plain keeping it together, he subtly creates an atmosphere of introspection with laughter as a vehicle. While he discusses the high standards set by his father, he also alludes to the high standards that are set by society that are, in today’s culture, nearly impossible to live by. He contrasts his childhood desire to be an adult with his current reality: struggling like the rest of us New Yorkers. There are a lot of great things to be said about Will Abeles, but perhaps my favorite thing is that he is a realist. He lives in the present, laughs at the past, and tries not to focus too hard on the future.
