Comedic storytelling is booming across America and one of its undisputed masters is the hilarious, deeply humane Adam Wade. He is Everyman: the guy on the bus who greets the driver, the local whose order is well known to the counter girl at the coffee shop, the underdog pining for the waitress with the slightly green front tooth. Adam is originally from a small town in New Hampshire, so you know his values have to be solid. But like anyone, he always wants a little more than he can get, which can lead him into situations that are frequently absurd. Audiences love Adam because they see themselves in his yearnings and dilemmas, and because he makes them long to know how everything turns out in the end. 

Adam’s first comedy album, Adam Wade: The Human Comedy, was recorded in front of a sold out audience at The Bell House in Brooklyn and released on iTunes and Google Play in September of 2015. Adam is a record 20-time Story Slam Champion at The Moth. His comedic storytelling has been lauded by critics at The New York Times, the Village Voice, Newsweek and New York Magazine. He has toured North America with his award-winning stories and is a regular performer on the legendary monthly storytelling show “The Nights of Our Lives” at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Time Out New York has featured him on their “Best of List” in the Most Promising Young Talents category. He has also appeared on Season 2 and 3 of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer.
