Book Sam Adams today for your event.  You will learn why clients and critics are extremely impressed with the quality of his performances. 

With his funny, laid-back, profanity-free style of comedy and storytelling, Sam is a popular and highly-requested 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 several social media platforms.

A review in the Arkansas Daily Gazette after a comedy performance in 2019 included 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, which 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. Two years later, he placed third in the New Faces Contest at Denver’s famed Comedy Works club. In 2006 Sam was accepted as a contestant in the nationally-respected Boston Comedy Festival.

Sam is the only dual prize winner in the history of the Great American Comedy Festival. In 2009, he won the festival’s amateur competition. Later that week he was asked to compete against the professionals. Sam’s second place finish provided an impetus to pursue a professional career in stand-up comedy at age 49.

Prior to establishing his career as an entertainer, Sam spent three decades as a newspaper sports journalist. His experiences working as a reporter for major daily newspapers include The Denver Post (1986-94), The Charlotte Observer (1995-96) and  Rocky Mountain News (1996-2009).  Sam also has three decades worth of experience in television. He’s 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’ (released in April, 2013.)

For Sam’s book, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway offers the following tribute … “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.”

As a public speaker, Sam offers two vibrant keynote presentations. The first is titled, ‘Going Up: Taking Steps To Elevate Your Levels Of Success.’  This presentation offers sound advice for success based on Sam’s career endeavors. The second is titled, ‘Race To A Finish Line.’  Sam advances his novel perspectives on the topic of race relations.

Both presentations offer insightful, impactful and humorous references from Sam’s careers in journalism and entertainment. Both feature riveting anecdotes taken from his personal and professional encounters with well-known sports figures and entertainers.

“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
