Adam Hill's playful personality, which has taken him to the top of the international comedy circuit, has translated seamlessly to his hosting role on the small screen, making him one of the most recognisable faces on Australian TV.

His positive, energetic comedy and rampant spontaneity have won him universal acclaim, rave reviews and a swag of awards throughout Australia, Ireland and Europe.

Adam's solo shows are established highlights at the Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe and the Melbourne Comedy Festivals, receiving five-star reviews and sold-out houses. His 2001, 2002 & 2003 shows were all nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival. The 2002 show, Happy Feet, took out the inaugural Best Of The Fest Peoples Choice Award in Edinburgh. Adam is also a regular at the Montreal "Just For Laughs" Comedy Festival, having been invited to perform there the last three years.
