“I have used Purple Cactus to book a number of comedians for company functions. They provide a fantastic service and are a company I would recommend and definitely use again” – Halifax


Adam Ethan Crow

Adam Crow is a man of many parts – as shown by his occasional use of his full monicker Adam Ethan Crow which as well as making his name look bigger when it’s up in lights, also helps to confuse anyone trying to pin him down like comedy and biography writers.

His material, though varied from gig to gig, centres frequently on relationships and the time honoured question of the differences between men and women. Untroubled by political correctness, he can have an audience giggling with understanding and eating out of the palm of his hand one minute and then gaping open-mouthed with shock at the harshness of what he has just said the next.

An experienced stand-up comedian for more than a decade, Adam Ethan Crow has enjoyed a whole new lease of life in recent years, after first beating cancer and then surviving a heart attack that as well as making him glad to be alive, also helped him put things in perspective.

A truly varied comedian, who can flit from dark to light and back again over a whole host of subjects from the banal, inane and trivial to the deep, personal and political. Adam Crow’s calm, measured approach and low, husky voice has seen him sometimes described by critics as lazy,  but in reality it has taken years of hard work to be able to appear that calm, laid-back and whimsical. Beating death not once but twice helps too.

Much in demand Adam Ethan Crow has honed his act to suit any audience, irrespective of race, genre, region or venue. Be it as a compere or comic, at a comedy club or festival, corporate function or charity gig, Adam can appear to be at home as shown at the 1997 Edinburgh Festival when Adam, with Mitch Benn, wrote and performed the surprise sell-out hit The A-Z of Comedy.

As an actor Adam Ethan Crow appeared in such quality dramas as The Dream Team (Sky One), Casualty (BBC 1), Trust (ITV), The Leaflet (BBC2), The Bill (ITV), Lovejoy (BBC 1) and Pirate TV for Sky. He was even an unlikely relationship expert on Channel 4′s The Real Dating Show, offering pearls of wisdom to the sad, lonely and desperate of TV land. As a presenter, he co-hosted a pilot for Channel One called After Midnight and hosted a forum style interview with Griff Rhys Jones for Martin Cassini Productions. On radio, he was also the anchor for his own spoof Sunday show for BBC Radio .

Such aptitude and diversity has also kept Adam much in demand for TV warm-up work And here he has covered the whole spectrum of light entertainment – from fellow coffin dodgers on Open House with Gloria Hunniford, to the outlandish lager louts on Channel 5′s Night Fever. Still it keeps him sane and pays the bills.
