The Clayton Center Auditorium & Conference Center will present The Adam Growe Quiz Show, hosted by the 44-year-old Toronto, Ontario-based licensed cab driver and stand-up comedian Adam Growe, at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6th.

According to the Canadian comics Facebook page:

“After dabbling in stand-up comedy in University, Adam [Growe] started his career as a radio broadcaster. By the late 1990s, he was headlining comedy clubs while building his TV experience in both Canada and the U.S.

“Writing mostly about being married and a father of three, Adam has appeared on CTV’s ‘Comedy Now,’ Just for Laughs, Comedy Central’s ‘Premium Blend,’ and ‘Star Search’ on CBS.

“His first one-man show, The Mom and Pop Shop, is about a guy who unexpectedly has to teach a prenatal class for his wife, the actual teacher, who is running late.

“In 2008, [Growe] became the Host of ‘Cash Cab’ on Discovery Channel Canada. Since then, he has combined comedy with trivia to bring international audiences, The Adam Growe Quiz Show. It’s funny, it’s unpredictable, and it’s a chance for people from the audience to become part of the show and win prizes live on-stage.”

During The Adam Growe Quiz Show, according to Adam Growe’s official website, audience members can:

“Win money right out of Adam’s pocket in a unique and uproarious stand-up comedy and quiz show, where the audience can participate as contestants for cash prizes live on stage!

“Since 2008, Adam has been touring with The Adam Growe Quiz Show, in which he combines comedy with trivia for a funny and unpredictable event. Each game is interactive for the entire audience and can be customized for specific groups and venues.

“The contestants are rewarded for their knowledge, but there are always funny multiple-choice options to each question, which brings entertainment value to every game. In-between games, Adam performs stand-up comedy, which he has crafted and refined over his more than 20 years in the entertainment business.”

The Clayton Center Auditorium & Conference Center presents THE ADAM GROWE QUIZ SHOW at 7 p.m. Nov. 6 at 111 E. Second St., Clayton, North Carolina 27528.
