Growing up in the Potteries, Adam Flood has spent most of his teens and adult life reinventing himself from his ‘clayhead’ beginnings. One false move as a youngster seems to have meant he's been whacked like a pinball on an uphill and unpredictable trajectory ever since. He's had limited choices and no second chances – it seems the only thing he got from his school was a lesson on the dangers that await someone who tells the truth.
His varied career includes being the bassist for Bleached Whale, an indie band too unknown to be forgotten, and a more lucrative office job in a London tech ‘start up’ before being sacked. Every next step comes with another transformation. It makes for plenty of comedic material; each fresh start like a new series of a classic ‘fish out of water’ sitcom.
This is a striking debut hour which ends on a playful and honest note about some of the small tweaks he’s made to his story. While it makes perfect sense as a conclusion to Remoulded it almost acts as a post-credits scene, hooking us into his next Fringe show – one where we’ll get to see more of this version of Flood, the comedian, who won't need to change again because he seems to have found his calling here.
