Fosters Best Newcomer Nominee 2015 was initially known for his impeccably written surreal one-liners, before later proving himself as an accomplished story-teller and sketch-writer.
He won the Chortle Student Comedy Award and since then has written for lots of big TV shows (including BBC Two’s Russell Howard’s Good News on which he was a staff writer), appeared in BBC One’s Count Arthur Strong and regularly contributed to the award winning Dave podcast.
He has also supported David Baddiel on tour and is one of the creators of underground cult hit The Bearpit Podcast Podcast alongside John Kearns.
In 2013 Adam was nominated for Leicester Mercury New Act of the Year and Best Newcomer at the Chortle Awards.
Adam currently has over 54,000 followers on twitter and his 140 character witticisms have been named ‘funniest tweet of 2013′ (Telegraph), the ‘second funniest of 2014′ (The Sun) and been featured in a BBC Online Feed My Funny video.
