Smooth. Clever. Hilarious. These words are used often to describe Sam Adams, who gained national attention by winning at the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival. Sam's energetic, comically-insightful act is 100 percent profanity-free and ﬁlled with observations about his every-day encounters. He is a headline performer and guest speaker at comedy clubs and corporate events across the country, and has shared stages with nationaltouring comedians and music recording artists — a genre-jumping list of nationally-known performers ranging from comedians Craig Ferguson, Frank Caliendo, Kevin Nealon and David Alan Grier to music's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Heart and seven-time Grammy Award winner Al Jarreau.
The Denver Business Journal once gave Sam a favorable review for "bringing down the house with a string of well-delivered lines that were notable for their lack of profanity, scatological or sexual references." Sam has authored one book, titled 'If You Don't Believe Me: Lessons Learned from Listening To The Greats' which was released in April, 2013. He has over 20 years of experience as a newspaper sports journalist, having worked for The Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News and The Charlotte Observer. In 2003 Sam received the Print Journalist of the Year award from his peers in Colorado. He’s credited with television appearances on ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS and NFL Network, and has covered championship events at all levels — most notable four Super Bowls and two Olympiads. Since 2014 he has been a regular contributor on "Broncos Game Day Live" — which airs on Denver's NBC afﬁliate KUSA-9NEWS.
One review states: “Sam was incredible! I can't imagine how difﬁcult it must be to make everyone laugh and enjoy themselves when you have a group ranging in age from 13 to 90! But Sam did it. He had the kids in stitches and the seniors, too. He relates to EVERYONE!"
