Adam Bloom was 18 months old when his parents nicknamed him The Voice. When he was 10, he told them he was going to be a comedian. By the age of 23, he was.
Two years later, he appeared on the BBC TV’s The Stand Up Show, had starred alongside Red Dwarf’s Norman Lovett in Asylum and featured in a six part comedy drama on the Paramount Comedy Channel.
In 1997 he performed stand-up slots on The Comedy Network (Paramount Channel) All Over The Shop (BBC TV), and Live At Jongleurs 2 and 4 (UK Gold). He also appeared on Ch5’s Bring Me The Head Of Light Entertainment.
Adam performed his first sell-out solo show at the 1996 Edinburgh Festival, quickly followed by the simply titled Adam Bloom Show in 1997. In July 1998 Adam appeared at the Montreal Comedy Festival, performing his routine as part of the Britcom Show, and followed this with a return to Edinburgh.
1998 rates as one of Adam’s most successful Edinburgh Festival to date, as not only was he one of the comics featured on Edinburgh or Bust for Ch4, but he also won the Polygram Punter Comedy Award’ for his show!

His stand-up received an extremely warm reception and rave reviews in the press.
