ABOUT SAM

Sam Adams has been called a Renaissance Man. Prize-winning comedian. Award-winning sports journalist. Television commercial actor. Motivational public speaker. Master of Ceremonies. Wedding officiant. Accomplished. Versatile.

In 2015 Sam was awarded GigMasters.com’s coveted “Rising Star” designation for being the site’s top-booked comedian. During the summer of 2018, the “True Color” video clip from Sam’s Dry Bar Comedy special (titled ‘Incoherently True’) went viral with over 10 million Facebook views in less than 72 hours. Since, the video clip has totaled more than 30.5 million Facebook views.

sam-smallSam’s energetic, comically-insightful act is 100 percent profanity-free and filled with observations about his every-day encounters. He is a headline performer and featured speaker at corporate events across the country, and has shared stages with national-touring comedians and music recording artists — a genre-jumping list of nationally-known performers ranging from comedians Craig Ferguson, Frank Caliendo, Kevin Nealon, Josh Blue and David Alan Grier to music’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Heart and seven-time Grammy Award winner Al Jarreau.

In 2009 Sam entered the Great American Comedy Festival, held annually in Johnny Carson’s childhood hometown of Norfolk, Nebraska. Sam left the festival as its most unique winner still to this date.

Entered initially as a contestant in the festival’s amateur division, Sam won that competition. He was asked to compete with the professionals after one of the entrants fell ill. In a field of experienced comedians with national comedy club headliner and late-night television talk show appearances on their resumes, Sam took second place. It was an impetus for him to pursue a professional career in stand-up comedy.

Sam is booked as a keynote speaker for his motivational presentation titled, ‘Going Up: Taking Steps To Elevate Your Levels Of Success.’  He’s served as a Master of Ceremonies for numerous high-profile events, and has appeared in several television commercial ads seen nationally.

In 2003 Sam received the Print Journalist of the Year award from his peers in Colorado. He has more than 20 years of experience as a newspaper sports journalist, having worked for The Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News and The Charlotte Observer.  Sam is credited with television appearances on ESPN, Fox Sports Net, NFL Network and local CBS and NBC affiliates. He has covered championship events at all levels — most notable four Super Bowls and two Olympiads.

Sam has authored one book, titled, ‘If You Don’t Believe Me: Lessons Learned from Listening To The Greats’ which was released in April, 2013. Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway wrote the following tribute to Sam for the book:

“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.”
