In his stand-up Adam explores the lessons in humility he's learning from his wife and especially from his children. Having lived as a child in East Africa, studied martial arts in India, & languished spiritually in New Jersey, Adam is attuned to the absurdities that arise in the everyday, mining both the ironies and silliness that exist in the most humbling situations (with which he continues to gain vast experience).

Adam has recently opened for such comedy legends and luminaries as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried, and Larry Miller. He performs at comedy clubs all over New York City and the surrounding area, including regularly at Gotham Comedy Club and Levity Live, as well as at Comic Strip Live, Dangerfield's, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, The Laugh Lounge, CB's Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, and Treehouse Comedy. Also at colleges, corporate & private events, churches, synagogues, theatres, and JCCs throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.

Adam co-authored the movie, The Pompatus of Love, with Jon Cryer (Best Comedy: Worldfest-Charlotte. Gold Award: Worldfest, Houston),and in which he stars along with Mr. Cryer and Kristen Scott Thomas.

Adam was incredible to work with and so funny! He was quick to respond to all my emails and questions. Adam's professionalism carried through from start to finish. He got two additional comedians for our show through his LoHud Comedy group and they were hysterical. I conveyed to Adam the level of edginess I was looking for in the show, as we are a non-profit and they were all perfect. Weeks later, people are still talking about what a great show it was. I would highly recommend Adam and LoHud Comedy and plan to use them again in the future.

Adam was very professional and delivered a show tailored to our audience. He was very funny and took the time to learn about my parents so he could create new material specifically about them for their anniversary party! He certainly kicked off our evening with great success! I would surely recommend using him at your next event!

Adam graciously accepted my request to perform at my fiance's 40th birthday party in Manhattan. From initial contact, Adam was very communicative and flexible. He didn't respond with a template, like most other performers did. The venue did not have a formal stage, as it was a winery, however Adam made the entire room feel like a comedy club. I was a little nervous initially as the age gap of attendees was so vast (from 26 to 74 years old), but Adam quickly had everyone laughing and clapping. Adam involved the audience for on the spot comedy and was very current, likable, and easy to relate to. If you are considering booking Adam for your event, don't second guess yourself. you won't be disappointed!

Mr. Oliensis, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the fantastic job you did producing our Comedy Night fundraiser. The comics you chose were all so amazing, including yourself, and we have been getting nothing but rave reviews from the parents that attended. In fact, we had a few people who also went to the other league's Comedy show and they said yours was so much better. One mom told us, 'this was the best comedy show she ever saw!" We look forward to having you back for many years to come.
Regards,

Adam is a consummate professional! He made our event a success. We knew we wanted a comedy show but had no clue how to set it up. Adam took care of everything and we could not have been more pleased with the results.. We will definitely be doing this more often from now on.

Adam, thanks for coming to our event and bringing your hilariously funny material with you! Your stories about your kids, your marriage, and your struggles so relatable! My wife and I are still laughing about your wife and you at the end there! And the members can't wait to do another comedy event as soon as we can. For anyone thinking about hiring Adam, he delivered across the board. He spoke with us in advance, learned about our Club, personalized his act for our membership, interacted with the crowd, and was easy & fun to work with. We couldn't be happier with how things went! Highly recommend! Thanks for the laughs! Gary

We hired Adam for our anniversary party. We spoke on the phone and told him about us and our friends. Based on that he wrote some stuff just for us. He also helped us schedule when he would perform during the event so the audience would be focused primed to laugh. On the day he showed up early, set up, hung out with our friends and us, and then performed his comedy, including what he'd written about my wife and me. Boy, was he on the mark! Our friends laughed like hell. We did too! His take on marriage, and getting older had all of us laughing with him and at ourselves. (My wife wants to meet his wife so they can compare notes.) We had a blast.
