Adam started his theatrical career age at 15 when he auditioned for a summerstock theatre company because he heard the cast threw good parties. They did. That experience led to years of singing and dancing his way through regional theatres on the east and west coasts; favorite roles include Jigger in Carousel, Reuben in Joseph and the Amazing Technocolor Dreamcoat, and Olin Britt (of barbershop quartet fame) in Carousel with the Downey Civic Light Opera company in California. After trying his hand as writer and director, and occasionally popping up on television, Adam discovered that you could get on stage without a script and dove head first into the world of improvisational theatre. In New York he studied extensively with Chicago City Limits and the Upright Citizens Brigade, appeared in KaBaam! improvised comic book and was a founding member of musical improv group Melodious Din. He is now a Chicago transplant and graduate of the improv program at IO and the improv Conservatory, accelerated writing and directing programs at Second City.
Adam is an associate faculty member at The Second City in Chicago where he teaches for both the improv and writing programs. He is a graduate of Princeton University, where he was a Certificate student of the Program in Theatre and Dance, and Harvard Law School.
