Smooth. Clever. Hilarious. These words are used often to describe Sam Adams, who gained national attention by winning at the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival. Sam is a six-time winner of GigMasters' prestigious "Best Of" award, which is based on the number of four-star or higher reviews received each year. Sam also has received GigMasters' coveted "Rising Star" award for being the site's top-booked comedian in 2015.

Sam's energetic, comically-insightful act is 100 percent profanity-free and filled with observations about every-day encounters. He is a headline performer at comedy clubs and corporate events across the country. Sam also has shared stages with national-touring comedians and music recording artists -- an eclectic, genre-jumping list of nationally-known performers ranging from comedians Frank Caliendo, Craig Ferguson, Kevin Nealon, David Alan Grier and Keenen Ivory Wayans to music's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Heart and seven-time Grammy Award winner Al Jarreau. The Denver Business Journal once gave Sam a favorable review for "bringing down the house with a string of well-delivered lines that were notable for their lack of profanity, scatological or sexual references."

In 2009 Sam entered the Great American Comedy Festival held annually in Johnny Carson's childhood hometown of Norfolk, Nebraska. Sam left the festival as its most unique winner still to this date. He was accepted into the festival initially as an amateur. Sam won the amateur competition, and was asked to stay to compete in the professional division after one of its entrants fell ill. In a field of 20 comedians with national comedy club tours and television appearances on their resumes, Sam took second place. It was the impetus for Sam to take on a professional career in stand-up comedy.

Sam has been described by many in the entertainment field as a Renaissance Man. In addition to performing comedy on stage, Sam also is booked as a Keynote Speaker for his motivational "Laughter Is Good Business" presentation, where he brings comedy and business to an intersection by 'Spelling Success With The Letter P.' Sam also has served as Master of Ceremonies for numerous high-profile events, and has appeared in several TV commercial ads seen nationally. He's an author, too -- with a book titled, 'If You Don't Believe Me: Lessons Learned from Listening To The Greats.' In the book, which was released April, 2013, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway offered the following tribute: "My friendship with Sam Adams goes back more than 20 years. During that time, we've had countless conversations and shared many laughs. Through the ups and downs of an NFL career, I developed great trust, respect and appreciation for him. Blending an uncanny ability to mix humor with keen insight and knowledge, Sam is a one-of-a-kind storyteller."

Off the record, Sam has nearly 30 years of experience as a newspaper sports journalist. His work, as a staff writer and columnist, has appeared in The Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News and The Charlotte Observer. In 2003 Sam received the Print Journalist of the Year award from his peers in Colorado. He also is credited with television appearances on ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS and NFL Network, and has covered championship events at all levels -- most notable four Super Bowls, two Olympics, two NCAA men's basketball Final Fours, one Stanley Cup Finals and one World Series. In 2014 Denver's NBC affiliate 9NEWS added Sam as a regular contributor to its sports programming, with appearances on "Sports A to Z" and the "Broncos Game Day Live" show.

Sam was incredible! I can't imagine how difficult it must be to make everyone laugh and enjoy themselves when you have a group ranging in age from 13 to 90! But Sam did it. He had the kids in stitches and the seniors. He relates to EVERYONE! His day to day take on life, society and KIDS is hilarious! We can all relate. I highly recommend Sam to ANY group whether it be sporting club, political organization, religious group, corporate event or just a plain ol evening of entertainment - you will not be disappointed.

Sam Adams was an excellent choice for our holiday party. I received many compliments regarding Sam's performance. He was confident, dressed professionally, and very funny. During the party he also mingled with the guests which made them feel he was an actual part of our team. I would highly recommend him for any event. Thanks Sam! Macy

Sam Adams is truly an outstanding and gifted comedian. We had him come and perform for a church banquet that didn't quite run on time. Sam was very professional and rest assured me that everything was okay. Then when it finally came time to perform, Sam did NOT disappoint. He had the audience rolling with laughter and didn't have to curse to do it. WHAT A TALENT!!! Would we ever have Sam Adams back again? YOU BET!!!
