Orny Adams

Orny Adams is at his best deconstructing the chaos of the modern world and getting worked up about things that most people just accept.

Orny’s comedy style is unique, yet universally appealing. Orny is quick on his feet to deliver a powerful, clever, sophisticated, and fast paced routine that attacks topics from an angle that many people have never considered. His tour has reached clubs, theatres, even the Staples Center in LA, colleges, corporate events, and festivals as far away as
Ireland, Australia, and South Africa.

Additionally, he has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians as well as the Annual Emmys Broadcast: Orny has become the “go to” guy when a celebrity needs a funny line.

In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2010 Orny returned to the festival to work on a taped televised stand up show hosted by Steve Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a “Stand-out act” by The Hollywood Reporter. Other notable projects include a talk show pilot developed for Orny by CBS Television Distribution/Kingworld along side Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst Films and taping his own series, “Modern Chaos with Orny Adams” for The Discovery Channel.

He hosted his own show on Discovery’s Travel Channel, has appeared on Jiminy Glick, Tough Crowd on Comedy Central,
The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Last Call With Carson Daly, and did a regular segment on Hollywood and politics on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. You may also recognize him from his national commercials, such as Coca-Cola, or his multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

In 2010, Orny followed up his critically acclaimed debut comedy DVD/CD “Path Of Most Resistance,” with a poignant one hour Special “Orny Adams Takes The Third” which will air October 29th on Comedy Central. And later this year, Orny can be seen on MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind’s Jeff Davis. For more information, video clips and everything Orny go to:
