Think about it. You could drop $2 on the ground and not even notice. Imagine you're throwing these $2 onto me while I'm performing naked in front of you at a dive bar in San Francisco. I'm used to that--you could get used to it too.

About Snatch Adams

Welcome! Thanks for making your way to my page! I'm Snatch Adams/Reckless Robin, a unicycle-riding, knife-juggling, silly-face-making, comedy burlesque, circus and street performer.



I'm known for:

  • Stunts: lying naked in a coffin while 45,000 live mealworms ate my skin, getting a cat tattoo on the inside of my labia, getting tied up and suspended naked while a crowd of people smoked out of a bong in my butt.
  • Humanitarian work:  I have worked with many organizations including Clowns Without Borders, traveling all around the US and Puerto Rico and to countries including Mexico, Colombia, Zimbabwe, and Haiti to provide free family-friendly clown shows and workshops to underprivileged populations.
  • Comedy burlesque:  I'm more of a clown who takes her clothes off and less of an actual dancer. Historically, feminist political commentary was integral to burlesque as an art form and to "burlesque" a thing means to parody or mock it. I burlesque neo-classic-burlesque and redefine what is considered sexy.
  • Street performing:  Last summer I became a family-friendly resident artist at the world-famous Pier 39 under the name Reckless Robin. My dream, when live events exist again, is to take my show to festivals around the world.

I have traveled the globe bringing my unique brand of strange feminist comedy to those who are least expecting it. In order to make this happen, I've eschewed a regular lifestyle and depend on irregular gig work to pay rent. This can be a volatile way to live and has completely fallen apart now that Coronavirus has hit the world. That's where you come in!

This is the hardest moment the world has known in any of our lifetimes. Many people have lost their jobs, are stuck in their homes, and are prevented from seeing their loved ones. Now, more than ever, we need to find laughter and joy. We need human connection when that feels impossible. We need to find the humor in it when all we want to do is cry. We need to be reminded that we CAN when being confined to a quarantine feels like a whole lot of can't. I commit to doing these things with your support and encourage you to do them with me.

Patreon has made it so that artists can create more work. Period. Patreon allows artists the stability to focus on creating the art THEY want to make.

I want to:

  • Move my comedy work online.  This means developing new acts that work in front of a camera without a live audience. It also means purchasing equipment to turn my home into a studio such as lights, a microphone, a backdrop, etc.
  • Chronicle my vast collection of stories.  I asked, and your answer was clear. You'd like for me to share my experiences traveling and performing as a ragamuffin clown with a penchant for saying "yes" to just about anything. I'd like to deliver!
  • Go to clown school in Barcelona, followed by a European tour:  I was just accepted into a month-long intensive clown program in Barcelona in September. If Coronavirus allows, I'd like to plan a European performance tour surrounding my time in school. If Coronavirus continues to be a little bitch well into the fall, I'll postpone it all to 2021.
  • Develop my street show. The Reckless Robin Danger Dame show is still in its infancy after performing it at Pier 39 for only a few months. I've been learning joke writing techniques and will continue to refine the stunts I do in the show to polish it into an act worthy of touring the globe.



One thing to note: I am more than happy to share stories, photos and videos of my humanitarian work and they will be part of this Patreon feed. But there are two reasons that this content will never be exclusively behind a paywall.

  • I'm not looking to capitalize on other people's struggles. Please donate to organizations that help refugees and other people in crisis. Clowns Without Borders is a great place to start!
  • It is very important to me that these stories are seen by as many people as possible. A big part of my mission is to destroy xenophobia by humanizing the very people who are so often villainized or forgotten. The people who most need to see these stories are not the ones paying a woman to make unapologetic feminist performance art.

Your support allows me to donate weeks of my life at a time to provide free shows for underprivileged populations. THANK YOU.

There is a lot of uncertainty right now, and regular, monthly support will allow me to continue making art and bringing joy to the people who need it most. If you believe, as I do, that play and laughter are crucial in times of crisis, then join me in my mission to bring joy to local and global communities. I am SO lucky to have a vast community of caring, encouraging people who believe in me. Thank you for being part of this community! I look forward to building this together.
