Adam is an award-winning writer and performer. His debut book, This is Going to Hurt, is a Sunday Times number one bestseller, selling over 650,000 copies in its first year and being translated into 25 languages.
It was named Sunday Times Humour Book of the Year, Blackwell's Debut Book of the Year and iBooks Book of the Year, won both the Readers’ Choice award and the Non-Fiction award at the Books Are My Bag Readers’ Awards and, most recently, Esquire Magazine’s Best Biography Prize.
Adam is adapting the book for TV as a major eight-part comedy-drama. Sister Pictures are producing and Adam is executive producer.
Adam’s credits as a writer and script editor include Mitchell & Webb, Very British Problems, Mrs Brown's Boys, Crims (co-creator), Mongrels, Up The Women, Flat TV, Our Ex Wife, Bounty Hunters, Blind Date and Child Genius. He frequently writes live material and panel show content for high-profile comedians, as well as writing for TV advertisements in UK and US, and rewriting hit Broadway musicals for transfer to West End.
His numerous columns and articles have been featured in The Sunday Times, The Mirror, The Guardian and The Observer.
As an "electrifying" (Guardian) live performer, Adam has sold out multiple Edinburgh Fringe runs, West End seasons and UK and international tours. He is a frequent voice on Radio 4 and on television is equally at home being sensible (Newsnight, Peston on Sunday, The Big Questions) or less so (The Russell Howard Hour, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown).
