Adam Bloom is undoubtedly one of Britain’s most exciting and original stand-up comedians. He has performed seven sell-out solo runs at The Edinburgh Festival, ranging from 1996 to 2007 and has also performed a twenty-nine date, sell-out tour of The UK. In 1999, Adam performed a sell-out solo run at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (which was in it’s 13th year), breaking box-office records for anyone’s first ever visit to the festival.
In 2004, Adam was part of the Just For Laughs Comedy Tour, where he performed to over 42,000 people in 17 cities across Canada. He has also performed as part of Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal four times, appearing at two JFL TV galas (2001 & 2005) and one JFL TV recording (2013). More recently, Adam performed as part of the comedy night at Banksy’s Dismaland on 11th September 2015.
He has also written & performed three series of The Problem with Adam Bloom for BBC Radio 4 (2003-2005) and has also provided addition material for over 40 other comedians, making him one of the country's most prolific comedy writers. Some of the people Adam has written for include an Oscar & BAFTA Nominee, a former Perrier Winner (Main Award) and four comedians who've given between one and eight Royal Variety Performances. Adam uses his writing skills to provide bespoke material for every corporate event he performs at, including hosting award ceremonies.
