Fresh off his first mayoral debate, Democratic nominee Eric Adams said his performance in his faceoff against Republican opponent Curtis Sliwa is indicative of how he’ll handle circumstances as mayor.

While Sliwa attempted to shake things up during Wednesday night’s showdown on WNBC, Adams, the frontrunner in the race, tried to stay above the fray.

“We know Curtis is a clown, and New York City is not a circus. Not only is he not funny, but he’s dangerous,” Adams said Thursday in an interview with “Mornings on 1."

Adams, the current Brooklyn borough president, said he wanted to remain focused on the issues and not entertain any distractions.

“I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t control the outbursts of Curtis last night,” Adams said.

As a former police officer, Adams has emphasized public safety. He wants to move more officers underground to fight subway crime and move forward with the city’s plan to close Rikers.

The Democratic nominee said he supports the city’s vaccine mandate for municipal employees announced Wednesday, but said he would have handled things differently, by sitting down with union members about the city’s plans.

“It’s about communication to me. That’s crucial,” he said.

 Sliwa will appear on “Mornings on 1” on Friday.
