ABOUT SAM ADAMS

Comedian. Keynote speaker. Journalist. Television commercial actor … Sam Adams enjoys sharing his talents with audiences of all ages. His laid-back style, along with his profanity-free comedy and storytelling have made him a popular comedian on the corporate event circuit.

In 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 clips from Sam’s Dry Bar special have accumulated over one million views on social media platforms.

A review following one of Sam’s performances in 2019 appeared in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. It contained 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 nine-time winner of Bash/GigMasters’ “Best Of” award. It 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 Sam stepped on stage for the first time to try standup comedy – at age 41.  In 2009, at age 49, Sam became the only dual prize winner in the history of the Great American Comedy Festival.

First, Sam won the festival’s amateur competition. When asked to replace a contestant in the professional competition, Sam took second place. From there, Sam decided to pursue a full-time career in entertainment.

Prior to establishing a career in entertainment Sam spent three decades as a newspaper sports journalist. He has reported for The Denver Post (1986-94), The Charlotte Observer (1995-96) and  Rocky Mountain News (1996-2009).  

Sam also has provided sports commentaries for Denver’s CBS and NBC affiliates, with appearances on Fox Sports Net, ESPN and NFL Network.

Sam’s coverage for many of the world’s most celebrated sporting events (from Super Bowls to Olympics) helped him gain perspectives for his book titled, ‘If You Don’t Believe Me: Lessons Learned from Listening To The Greats.’

Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway offered the following tribute for Sam’s 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.”

Sam offers two vibrant keynote speaker presentations. Each one features riveting anecdotes taken from encounters with well-known sports figures and entertainers. 

The first presentation is titled, ‘Going Up: Taking Steps To Elevate Your Levels Of Success.’  Sam offers sound advice for success taken from his career endeavors. The second presentation is titled, ‘Race To A Finish Line.’  Sam advances novel perspectives on the topic of race relations.

Both presentations offer insightful, impactful and humorous references from Sam’s careers in journalism and entertainment.
