It’s a great recipe for a night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. According to the producers, the hilarious on-point show never fails to generate lots of elbowing throughout the evening. Sexy and fast paced, the content “is meant for adults, but leaves audiences laughing and giggling like little kids.”
Since first published in 1992, John Gray’s book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, exploring the differences between the sexes, has sold in excess of 50 million copies, been translated into 40 different languages and is one of the most recognizable titles in the world.
After opening in Paris in 2007, Men are From Mars–Women are From Venus LIVE! has been seen by more than a million people in Europe. It debuted in the United States in 2013, playing to rave reviews throughout North America ever since.

In addition to his comedy, Amadeo can also be seen in a wide variety of TV and movie roles, including a co-starring role in the final episode of the HBO hit series Boardwalk Empire, and a co-starring role in the season finale of the Netflix series Marvel’s Daredevil.
