Adam Hills

Adam Hills has achieved international acclaim as one of the world’s best stand up comics. His combination of positive uplifting comedy and rampant spontaneity have seen him receive a swag of awards, glowing reviews and a legion of fans around the planet.

Adam’s solo shows are established highlights at the Adelaide Fringe, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe – where he regularly sells over 10,000 tickets in the month. He is the only Australian comedian to have performed at the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, and is a regular star of the Cat Laughs Kilkenny Comedy Festival in Ireland, and The Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.

Adam’s 2001, 2002 and 2003 shows were all nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival. His 2002 show, Happy Feet, took out the inaugural Best Of The Fest Award in Edinburgh, and his follow up show Cut Loose won the Radio Forth Award for Best Comedy. Adam has also won a Chortle Award for Best Compere in the UK, and his 2007 show Joymonger won a Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performance in Australia.

In Australia, Adam is also known as the host of the wildly successful music quiz show Spicks and Specks on ABC-TV, alongside team captains Alan Brough and Myf Warhurst. With viewing figures of over 1.2 million people a week, the show has received numerous AFI and Logie Award nominations, while Adam has been nominated for no less than four Logie Awards – including the coveted Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality – and won GQ Magazine’s TV Personality of the Year Award in 2007.

In 2007/08, Adam, Alan and Myf took The Spicks and Speck-tacular stage show on a live tour of Australia, performing to over 75,000 fans, and even appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The same year, Adam notched up another career highlight as he hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Paralympic Games, in a broadcast screened throughout Australia, South Africa and Hong Kong.

Adam’s UK TV appearances include Mock The Week, The Charlotte Church Show and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, as well as having his own half-hour special on The Paramount Comedy Channel. He hosted two series of Four At The Store for BBC Radio 4, and co-presented We Say Tomay-to on Radio 2.

Adam has contributed articles to Subaru Magazine, Inside Cricket, and was a regular contributor to BBC’s Ouch! Website. He has also acted on stage in Die On Your Feet at the 2005 Melbourne Comedy Festival, and played the title role in Breaker Morant at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2007.

In late 2008, Adam will be releasing his second DVD in Australia, and in 2009 will embark on a world tour of his brand new show Inflatable.
