Comedy’s nice guy has managed to pull off a real coup – hosting his own talk shows in two different countries. Already a gold-plated star in Australia, Adam has hit the big time in the UK with his own talk show on Channel Four – The Last Leg.

When he is not conquering the small screen he is treading the boards as one of our finest stand up comedians, selling out rooms around the country and around the world.

Adam Hills is one of Australia’s best-known comedians, mainly as the five times Gold Logie-nominated host of his two hit ABC TV series – the music quiz show Spicks and Specks and his unique take on the late night talk show, Adam Hills Tonight. Spicks and Specks was ABC TV’s highest rating program for seven years and the anchor for its highly successful Wednesday night comedy line-up. In 2011, Spicks and Specks finished up on a high note after 7 years and 277 episodes. In 2012 Adam, Alan and Myf embarked on a huge national farewell tour of Spicks and Specktacular, performing to more than 80,000 fans around the country.

Adam Hills In Gordon Street Tonight premiered in 2011 and is returning for a third season in 2013 as the simplified – Adam Hills Tonight. The show mixes celebrity guests including Whoopi Goldberg, KD Lang, Barry Humphries and John Cleese, with audience engagement, elevating everyday people to celebrity status. In 2012 Adam hosted a special panel show for the London Paralympics for Channel 4. The show was so well received that it was reprised for a Christmas special and was picked up for a full series which premiered on Channel 4 in February. Already confirmed for a second series, The Last Leg sees Adam with the rare honour of hosting his own show in two separate countries.

When Adam isn’t dominating the global TV landscape he is usually somewhere in the world with a mic in hand doing his day job – globetrotting stand up comedian. Adam has conquered Edinburgh and featured in more Montreal festivals than any other Australian. In 2013 he will tour Australia and the UK with his new show Happyism, including a show at the iconic Hammersmith Apollo in September. In amongst this he’s won a prestigious Helpmann Award, released three best-selling stand-up DVD’s and had his own one-hour stand-up special on ABC TV and UK’s Channel 4. Adam has performed to the Queen and was given the rare honour of delivering Channel 4’s Alternative Christmas Message – adding his name to a list that includes Marge Simpson, Jamie Oliver, Bridgitte Bardot and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
