Born and raised in the suburbs of Lake Forest Park, WA, Adam got into comedy at an early age, impersonating friends, teachers, and Ace Ventura.
In High School, Adam ran his high school’s morning television news program. When it began, it was your basic morning news program. Then Adam and a few friends took it over, and slowly turned it into a weekly sketch show that somehow included the news. Airing every Friday morning for 10 minutes, it was a hit amongst the entire school. Except for teachers that wanted kids to learn and thought they were wasting class time with “immature sillies.” To this day, he doesn’t know what that means.
In 2001, Adam journeyed to Los Angeles, where he was accepted into the BFA acting conservatory at USC. His junior year he studied abroad in London at the British American Drama Academy, where he did Shakespeare, fencing, and drinking.
Since then, Adam has been seen guest starring on Two Broke Girls, WORKAHOLICS, Arrested Development,According to Jim, Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV, Kevin Hart's Real House Husbands of Hollywood, HBO's Silicon Valley, Comedy Central's @Midnight, Chelsea Lately, and writing for MTV’s PUNKD, and as the bad guy opposite Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy in Paul Feig’s buddy cop comedy “The Heat.” His standup has been featured on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, AXS Gotham Live, Adam Devine's House Party, and he's a regular on The Adam Carolla podcast.
