Profanity-free comedy and storytelling have made Sam Adams a popular entertainer for audiences of all ages.

A review of Sam’s performance 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.”

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.

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 site’s coveted “Rising Star” award for being its top-booked comedian.

Sam first stepped on stage to try standup comedy in 2001. 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. He’s appeared on Fox Sports Net, ESPN and NFL Network.

Sam covered many of the world’s most celebrated sporting events, from Super Bowls to Olympics. The experiences 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 Famer 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 features riveting anecdotes taken from his encounters with well-known sports figures and entertainers. 

The first 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.

“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.”

“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! ”
