Over the last number of years Australian comic Adam Hills has achieved international acclaim as one of the the scene’s foremost talents.
Perhaps best known for hosting Channel 4’s satirical smash hit, ‘The Last Leg’, Hill’s stand-up is pleasingly distinct in its combination of positive uplift and rampant, wide-eyed spontaneity.
Adam’s solo shows have seen sell-out houses at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and our own Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival. Around these parts, Adam commands a certain cult following, having lived in Dublin between 1999 – 2002 and honing his skills on the capital’s comedy circuit. Accordingly, Adam’s Irish appearances always crackle with the energy of a homecoming. However, it is at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that Adam truly announced himself on the international scene. His 2001, 2002 and 2003 shows were all nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award at the festival. Adam has also won a Chortle Award for Best Compere in the UK. He is currently touring with his show Clown Heart to the UK, Australia and other festivals around the world.
