Sam Adams does comedy among the many talents he shares to earn his share of success.

Comedian. Journalist. Author. Public Speaker. Master of Ceremonies. Commercial actor.

Sam tried his first standup comedy set at an open mic in May, 2001.  He was 41 years old, curious and nervous. The experience went well enough to bring him back for more. Eight years later standup comedy became Sam’s full-time career, and he continues to deliver for audiences of all ages.

Sam received high praise at the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival. Clips from his 2017 Dry Bar Comedy special (titled “Incoherently True) have drawn over 40 million views on social media platforms. The “True Color” clip is one of Dry Bar Comedy’s most viewed videos. https://samadamsdoescomedy.com/pics/

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette offered this review of Sam’s performance in 2019: “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 spent three decades working in sports media. He covered many of the world’s greatest sporting events, from Summer and Winter Olympiads to Super Bowls. Sam’s peers named him Colorado’s Print Journalist of the Year in 2003.  In 2019 Sam was inducted to the prestigious Denver Press Club’s Hall of Fame.  He’s the first African-American sports writer to be inducted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOT7Ai70MUQ

There are two presentations Sam delivers as a public speaker. The first is titled “Seeing Your Success Through My Two I’s.”  The second is titled “Race To A Finish Line.”  It is a thought-provoking presentation about race relations in America. Both presentations have important takeaways, and both have been well-received by Sam’s audiences. https://samadamsdoescomedy.com/keynote-speaker/



“He had the kids in stitches as well as the seniors. He relates to EVERYONE! 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.”
Kelly L., Broomfield CO

“Mr. Sam Adams was an epic addition to our event. Our room was jam-packed with 250 soldiers from all across America. The best part about his humor is that it was all clean and made everyone laugh and enjoy the evening.
Giovanna C., Colorado Springs CO

“We had a very special and unique way we wanted to present our material. Sam was 100% flexible, and on board from day one. We used him as an emcee throughout the day, as well as enjoyed his comedy hour at the end of the evening. Everyone in the audience absolutely loved it! ”
Taylor P., Boulder CO
