Following a phenomenal month-long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, resulting in sold out advance ticket sales, critical acclaim and a Best Newcomer nomination at the prestigious Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards, multi-award winning stand-up comedian ADAM HESS will bring his debut hour Salmon to the Soho Theatre from Wednesday 23rd to Saturday 26th September.
ADAM HESS says: Salmon will be bursting with hilarious tales from the perspective of a six year old, the disappointment of growing up to find out that you don’t become a better person and why wearing your sister’s dresses isn’t as cool as you may have thought. This densely written show will offer noticeably high laughs per minute and, perhaps more importantly, it will prove that ADAM is fine. Absolutely fine. And really normal. Just like you.
Having won the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2011, ADAM quickly made a name for himself on the comedy circuit with his impeccably written surreal one-liners before later proving himself as an accomplished story-teller and sketch-writer. Since then ADAM has written for lots of big TV shows (including BBC Two’s Russell Howard’s Good News on which he was a staff writer), appeared in BBC One’s Count Arthur Strong and regularly contributed to the award winning Dave podcast. He has also and supported DAVID BADDIEL on tour and is one of the creators of underground cult hit The Bearpit Podcast Podcast alongside JOHN KEARNS, RICHARD GADD, LOLLY ADEFOPE, MATT WINNING, MAT EWINS and FIN TAYLOR.
In 2013 ADAM was nominated for Leicester Mercury New Act of the Year and Best Newcomer at the Chortle Awards. ADAM is well known for his unique brand of comedy on Twitter which has attracted him over 46,000 followers and his 140 character witticisms have been named ‘funniest tweet of 2013’ (Telegraph), the ‘second funniest of 2014’ (The Sun) and been featured in a BBC Online Feed My Funny video.
