In 1999, Adam’s 30-minute TV special, ‘Beyond a Joke’, was commissioned by Channel 4. The Office-style mockumentary centred on the bleak off-stage life of a stand-up comedian, and earned Adam praise from the king of mockumentary television himself, Ricky Gervais.
In 1998, Adam took home the coveted “Best Stand Up” title at the Time Out Awards.
Adam performed to over 40,000 people during 2004’s Just for Laughs comedy tour in Canada, performing alongside comedic acts such as Tommy Tiernan and Flight of the Conchords.
