Sam Adams is a prize-winning comedian based in Denver, Colorado. He’s also a motivational public speaker, an award-winning sports journalist and television commercial actor.
During the summer of 2018, the “True Color”video clip from Sam’s Dry Bar Comedy special (titled ‘Incoherently True’) went viral, with more than 10 million Facebook views in less than 72 hours. Since, the video clip has amassed more than 31 million Facebook views.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Sam’s comically energetic act is 100 percent profanity-free and built on humor-filled observations from his everyday life encounters. He’s a headline performer at corporate events across the U.S., and has shared club stages with national-touring comedians ranging from Craig Ferguson, Frank Caliendo and Kevin Nealon to Josh Blue and David Alan Grier.
In 2009 Sam left the Great American Comedy Festival as its most unique winner still to date. Entered initially as a contestant in the amateur division, Sam won that competition. He was asked by festival officials to remain and compete with the professionals, after one of its contest entrants fell ill.
Competing as an amateur among the field of polished comedians — many of whom had national comedy club bookings and late-night television credits already on their resumes — he took second place. It was an impetus for Sam Adams to pursue what has become a successful professional career in stand-up comedy.
