10 reviews for Adam Bloom

  1. Sir Ian McKellen

    He makes me laugh out-loud, I can’t wait to see him live

  2. Ricky Gervais

    He’s been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years. Bloom not only has meticulous, brilliant lines, but also an intense and fragile honesty

  3. The Scotsman

    His mission is to convince you that he’s the greatest comic ever and he makes a surprisingly good case

  4. The Independent

    In the premier league of comedy

  5. Tony Cottey (Sussex Cricket Club)

    One of my favourite acts he has never let us down at any corporate event. Brilliant !

  6. John Morgan Executive Producer, Promax UK Awards

    His stand up was hilarious and he quickly made a real connection with his audience. Promax gives out over forty awards and yet Adam made this onerous task seem like a walk in the park, demonstrating a quick wit and the ability to improvise and adapt to suit each situation. In short, Adam was a delight and the audience loved him

  7. Tom Moore – Bromsgrove Business & Charity Event

    Adam’s spectacular standup routine really made the night a success. 100mph from start to finish. His hilarious stories and playful exchanges with the audience really helped to get everyone involved. Can’t recommend enough

  8. Alex Lemay FTI Consulting

    I really do not think it could have gone any better…Adam turned up well ahead of time to ensure that everything was set up perfectly, removing any concerns we had and was able to tailor his performance to the business audience with everyone laughing throughout. We have had very positive feedback from those who attended the event and would recommend Adam for a private event in a corporate setting

  9. Sabine Kelly Varlink Limited

    Adam’s piece was just brilliant! It went down extremely well. The right length the right style…cracking preparation and contextualization. His piece and our awards merging nicely into one. It was just BRILLIANT, I loved it and will now keep an eye out (as other people out there who I have been talking to) for his gigs and performances. Thanks so much for your assistance, I am so glad we jointly picked Adam – he certainly had a huge impact in a successful and fun evening

  10. Nicholas Barton CEO, The Barton Group

    I hired Adam to be the opening act for my company’s virtual Christmas bash on Zoom in December and within the first minute he had everyone in stitches and that pretty much carried on for the rest of his set. He was topical and engaging which in a virtual setting is never easy so I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Adam and could well use him again in the future.
