About

In his stand-up Adam explores the lessons in humility he's learning from his wife and especially from his children. Having lived as a child in East Africa, studied martial arts in India, & languished spiritually in New Jersey, Adam is attuned to the absurdities that arise in the everyday, mining both the ironies and silliness that exist in the most humbling situations (with which he continues to gain vast experience). Adam has recently opened for such comedy legends and luminaries as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried, and Larry Miller. He performs at comedy clubs all over New York City and the surrounding area, including regularly at Gotham Comedy Club and Levity Live, as well as at Comic Strip Live, Dangerfield's, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, The Laugh Lounge, CB's Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, and Treehouse Comedy. Also at colleges, corporate & private events, churches, synagogues, theatres, and JCCs throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Adam co-authored the movie, The Pompatus of Love, with Jon Cryer (Best Comedy: Worldfest-Charlotte. Gold Award: Worldfest, Houston),and in which he stars along with Mr. Cryer and Kristen Scott Thomas. On Thumbtack-com Adam has been the #1 Comedian for Hire in NYC for four years running (2015-18). He's also been nominated for a Tony Award and a Clio Award (the Oscars of commercials). And no, just being nominated isn't an honor. Just being nominated sucks!
