About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Book Sam Adams today for your event, and you will learn why clients, critics and audiences are extremely impressed with the quality of his performances. On stages and on pages, as an entertainer, public speaker and journalist, Sam is one of the most talented personalities in America today.  With his laid-back, profanity-free style of comedy and storytelling, Sam is a popular and highly-requested comedian on the corporate event circuit. During the summer of 2018, the “True Color” video clip from Sam’s Dry Bar Comedy special titled ‘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. Several more clips from Sam's Dry Bar special have accumulated over one million views on several social media platforms. A review in the Arkansas Democrat 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 10-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. 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 both 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.) For Sam's book, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway offers the following tribute … “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. Journalist. Television commercial acting credits too! Sam Adams always is ready to give a memorable performance for audiences of all ages. Book yours today!

Community EventReviewed on July 21, 2022From Breckenridge, CO

Choosing Sam for our event was the perfect decision. He was extremely kind and friendly throughout the process, taking the time to learn about our audience and craft a show that folks related to. He was so funny! We had multiple audience members commenting after the show that they laughed so hard they were sore afterwards. Honestly can't say enough good things about Sam and his performance...we are already looking for ways to have him perform for our network again. Thanks again Sam, you really made our event a complete success!!!

Sam was overall a very easy person to connect with through the entire process. Incredibly personable. Sam took the time to know and understand his audience beforehand and delivered a fun time for our entire virtual hour! Highly recommended.

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.
