Adam is an extremely talented writer-performer and actor. 

He is currently in rehearsals for STOP (dir. by John Schwab) at the Trafalgar Studios, a new comedy by David Spicer which opens in June.

Adam is part of the main troupe on the new series of the hit show HORRIBLE HISTORIES for the BBC, due to air later this year. Other recent television credits include, TOP COPPERS for the BBC and DRUNK HISTORY for Comedy Central. He also takes on the spoof-role of Sean Bean in the notorious MURDER IN SUCCESSVILLE for BBC3, an improvised comedy murder mystery series, fronted by Tom Davies.

His show BRING ME THE HEAD OF ADAM RICHES won Best Show at the 2011 Edinburgh Comedy Awards and gained 5 star reviews. He returned to the Fringe in 2014 with a brand new hour of phenomenal bullshit ADAM RICHES, ADAM OF THE RICHES which sold out at the Pleasance Dome and subsequently enjoyed a successful London run at the Soho Theatre. 

Adam has previously been nominated for the Times Breakthrough Award at The South Bank Sky Arts Awards.

‘Uproarious good fun…vintage Riches’★★★★ Guardian

‘You will laugh yourself silly’. ★★★★★ Telegraph

Cunningly crafted, high-energy character comedy that’s big on laughs’. ★★★★ Time Out
