FTN: 85 Class clowns and firetrucks; Award-winning comedian, actor and ADHD poster boy: Adam Sietz!

by Faster Than Normal

Welcome to another edition of Faster Than Normal, and a HUGE welcome to those who found us from the New and Noteworthy section of iTunes! We’re thrilled that you’re here, and so happy to share with you that ADHD is a gift, NOT a curse!

This week we’re getting to know the wonderful and entertaining Adam Sietz! (Don’t blink, that is the correct spelling).  Adam has checked more ticks on his bucket list than a blue tick hound after a good run in the woods.  He has acted in Academy Award & Golden Globe-nominated films, Emmy Award-winning TV series, Broadway shows, Video Games, (including “Grand Theft Auto” & “Neverwinter Nights 2” for which he won 2007 VG Character of the year), “The National Lampoon’s Radio Hour”, over 200 commercials, and as a comedian has worked with some of the best Comics of this generation: Sarah Silverman, Kevin Hart, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld and Robert Klein, to name a few. All this while being a husband, a dad, and MASSIVELY ADHD.

This is going to be fun!  Enjoy!

PS: He’s the voice of the troll under the bridge on Dora the Explorer!!
