About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

On stages and on pages, Sam Adams’ talents as an entertainer, public speaker and journalist make him one of the most unique personalities in America today.  With his funny, laid-back style of storytelling that is void of profanity, Sam has become a popular and requested comedian on the corporate event circuit. He also has two live recordings (‘Right To Laugh’ and ‘Incoherently True’) performed in comedy club settings. A review in the Arkansas Daily Gazette after a comedy performance in 2019 included the following: "Known for his prize-winning comedy and casual delivery devoid of profanity and vulgarity, (Adams) spent two hours entertaining a full house that belly-laughed and applauded too many times to count. If it's true that laughter is the best medicine, he administered his healing brand intravenously for two solid hours." Sam is a nine-time winner of Bash/GigMasters' "Best Of" award, which is based on the number of four-star or higher reviews a performer receives each year. In 2015 Sam received the coveted "Rising Star" award for being the site's top-booked comedian. In 2001, while working full-time as a newspaper sports journalist, Sam stepped on stage for the first time to perform standup - at age 41. Two years later, he placed third in the New Faces Contest at Denver's famed Comedy Works club. In 2006 Sam was accepted as a contestant in the nationally-respected Boston Comedy Festival. Sam is the only dual prize winner in the history of the Great American Comedy Festival. In 2009, he won the festival’s amateur competition, and was asked to compete later in the week against the professionals. Sam's second place finish provided the impetus for him to pursue a professional career in stand-up comedy at age 49. During the summer of 2018, the “True Color” video clip from Sam’s Dry Bar Comedy special ‘Incoherently True’ received a remarkable 10 million Facebook views in less than 72 hours. Since, the “True Color” video has amassed nearly 40 million social media views worldwide. Prior to establishing his career as an entertainer, Sam spent three decades as an award-winning newspaper sports journalist. His experiences working as a reporter for major daily newspapers began with The Denver Post in 1986, included a stint with The Charlotte Observer (1995-96) and finished with 13 years (1996-2009) at the Rocky Mountain News. Sam also has three decades worth of experience in television. He’s provided sports commentaries for Denver’s CBS and NBC affiliates, with appearances on Fox Sports Net, ESPN and NFL Network. In 2003 Sam’s media peers elected him Colorado’s Print Journalist of the Year. In 2019 he was honored by the prestigious Denver Press Club with induction to its Hall of Fame — the first African-American sports journalist to be inducted in the club’s 150-plus year history. Sam’s coverage for many of the world’s most celebrated sporting events (from Super Bowls to Olympics) helped him gain serious and humorous perspectives for his book titled, ‘If You Don't Believe Me: Lessons Learned from Listening To The Greats’ (released in April, 2013.) In the book, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway offers the following tribute to Sam … “Through the ups and downs of an NFL career, I developed great trust, respect and appreciation for him. Blending an uncanny ability to mix humor with keen insight and knowledge, Sam is a one-of-a-kind storyteller.” As a public speaker, Sam offers two vibrant keynote presentations. The first is titled, ‘Going Up: Taking Steps To Elevate Your Levels Of Success’ which offers sound advice for success based on Sam’s career endeavors. The second is titled, ‘Race To A Finish Line’ in which Sam advances his novel perspectives on the topic of race relations. Both presentations offer insightful, impactful and humorous references from Sam’s careers in journalism and entertainment, and feature riveting anecdotes taken from his personal and professional encounters with well-known sports figures and entertainers.  Comedian. Keynote Speaker. Storyteller. Journalist. Sam Adams keeps something good in his bag of versatility, and always is ready to deliver to audiences of all ages. Book Sam today for your event. You will learn why clients and critics alike continue to be extremely impressed with the quality of his performances!

EventReviewed on May 31, 2013From Broomfield, CO

Sam was incredible! I can't imagine how difficult it must be to make everyone laugh and enjoy themselves when you have a group ranging in age from 13 to 90! But Sam did it. He had the kids in stitches and the seniors. He relates to EVERYONE! His day to day take on life, society and KIDS is hilarious! We can all relate. I highly recommend Sam to ANY group whether it be sporting club, political organization, religious group, corporate event or just a plain ol evening of entertainment - you will not be disappointed.

EventReviewed on April 27, 2018From Colorado Springs, CO

Mr. Sam Adams was an epic addition to our event. He was able to entertain a wide variety of ages and individuals from all over the country in our room that was jam packed with 250 soldiers all across America. He was even nice enough to stay after the event and take pictures with soldiers who were fans of his work. The best part about his humor is that it was all clean humor that made everyone laugh and enjoy the evening. Our entire program would not have been the same without having Mr. Sam Adams for our Dining in Ceremony. I couldn't believe how funny he was and how he even made multiple people laugh that we never see laugh around the office. Awesome performance!

BanquetReviewed on August 24, 2013From Fort Collins, CO

Sam Adams is truly an outstanding and gifted comedian. We had him come and perform for a church banquet that didn't quite run on time. Sam was very professional and rest assured me that everything was okay. Then when it finally came time to perform, Sam did NOT disappoint. He had the audience rolling with laughter and didn't have to curse to do it. WHAT A TALENT!!! Would we ever have Sam Adams back again? YOU BET!!!
