This Sam Adams is the comedian based in Denver, Colorado — not the guy on the beer bottle. He performs a hilarious, energetic brand of comedy for corporate events and comedy clubs across the country. And, his act is 100-percent free of profanity.
In 2018, the “True Color” video clip from Sam’s Dry Bar Comedy special (titled ‘Incoherently True’) went viral, receiving over 10 million Facebook views in less than 72 hours. Since, the “True Color” clip has amassed over 31 million views. The overall views of Sam’s Dry Bar Comedy clips for one year surpassed 41 million.
Sam started his standup comedy career at age 41. He made it a full-time career at age 49, after leaving the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival as its most unique winner still to date. Sam won the festival’s first-place prize in the amateur division, then accepted a last-minute request to replace an ill contestant in the professional division. The lone amateur in the field of 24 contestants, Sam earned a second-place finish.
Sam also is a television commercial actor and motivational public speaker. His previous full-time career as a sports writer spanned three decades before its end in 2009. In 2019 Sam was inducted to the prestigious Denver Press Club’s Hall of Fame.
