Adam Rowe
Winner of the best joke at last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adam Rowe is widely regarded as one of the most exciting young comics to emerge in recent years, with his reputation growing from exciting newcomer to international headline act since his debut in 2010. Despite still being in his early twenties, Adam is already one of the most sought after acts & comperes in the country and is fast becoming a huge favourite at all of The UK’s biggest comedy clubs and festivals, as well as being asked to headline clubs as far afield as South Africa.

His natural, laid back persona combined with his brutally honest, opinionated stand-up and his phenomenal ad-libbing ability make each of his performances unique and gloriously unpredictable, but more importantly; always hilarious.

He’s had four sell out years at The Liverpool Comedy Festival (2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016), with his venue capacity almost doubling every year due his growing hometown fan base.

In 2017, Adam released his debut one-hour stand-up special “I Know What You’re Saying” on various formats including DVD, download & USB flashdrive. The special was recorded across two sold-out nights at Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool and was co-produced by Adam’s own company; Front Row Productions. He’ll also be taking his sophomore show ‘Unbearable’ to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, before taking it on his debut nationwide UK tour

Adam regularly performs at The Comedy Store, Hot Water Comedy Club, The Glee Clubs, Komedia, The Stand, The Comedy Loft, Frog & Bucket, Top Secret Comedy Club, The Boat Show, Just The Tonic, Ten Feet Tall, Manfords & many independent comedy nights, comedy clubs, corporate & private events.
