Adam Bloom was 18 months old when his parents nicknamed him The Voice. When he was 10, he told them he was going to be a comedian. By the age of 23, he was.
Adam performed his first sell-out solo show at 1996 Edinburgh Festival, quickly followed by the simply-titled Adam Bloom show in 1997. In July 1998 Adam appeared at the Montreal Comedy Festival, performing his routine as part of the Britcom Show, and followed this with a return to Edinburgh. 1998 rates as Adam's most successful Edinburgh Festival to date, as not only was he one of the comics featured on Edinburgh or Bust, but he also won the Polygram Punters' Comedy Award for his show! No stranger to awards during this particular year, Adam also won the Time Out Award for best stand-up.
Most recently, Adam has recorded new stand-up sets for Stand Up Two, 5's The Big Stage and The Stand-Up Show, Melbourne Comedy and The Kilkenny Comedy Festivals. Here's what the critics have to say?
"To be in his audience for an hour is an easy delight...He re-routes your neurons to allow you to suddenly see the world from a different perspective...Bloom is the business." - The Age, Melbourne.
"...he brought the house down with a barn-storming set, that made the audience laugh like familiar friends" - The Guardian
"...a highly intelligent, dazzling, original thinker" - The Stage
"...has the charisma and the material to go a long way" - The Scotsman
"No puns, no ersatz nostalgia, just pure Adam-Bloomness" - The Independent.
