Longtime friend of Claude Stuart, Adam Richmond, is a Los Angeles-based comedian who is known throughout the country for his edgy, super funny comedic style. Originally from Canada, Adam’s a born entertainer who for more than a decade has built a successful comedy career. In addition to being a funny comedian, he’s also a successful writer, actor, voice-over artist and still considers himself to be his grandmothers favorite.
Before leaving Canada to pursue his comedy ambitions, Adam earned a Bachelor’s degree from Western University in London, Ontario, studying Philosophy at the school. After graduating (and proving the degree to be inherently useless), Adam took classes at the renowned Second City in Toronto, in addition to studying comedy at seminars and in acting classes. Adam also had a chance to work as a staff writer at the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) for a show called “Chilly Beach” (like a lamer, more beaten down South Park).
With this comedic experience in hand, Adam re-located to Los Angeles in the mid-2000s and quickly began to earn gigs that demonstrated his versatility as a comic. In addition to traveling and performing in comedy clubs around the country, his high-energy style gave him the opportunity to be showcased on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, as well as being featured a couple times on Last Call with Carson Daly. Adam has also been invited to do voiceover work for Nickelodeon and enjoys a recurring role on Tron, a futuristic show on the Disney Channel. Several years back, Adam was also chosen to be the spokesperson and face of LA Metro, a position that spread his image on busses and billboards across L.A. (and potentially deterred all riders from ever wanting get on…Boom!!!).
Adam’s career highlights also include writing and producing his own show, The Adam Richmond Show, sold a web series called ‘Mr. Whisper’ and also produced another internet short called ‘Bottom Chef’ where Claude was one of the judges (and looked amazingly handsome). Adam has also spent many years touring Canada as a headline act for the Yuk Yuk‘s comedy tour and all across the USA.
Over the years, Adam has made a priority to support the United States military as a comic and has performed a number of times for the troops in Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California. Adam has also participated in the Armed Forces Tour, traveling to Japan, South Korea and Guam to entertain the U.S. military stationed overseas. This year, he documented his performances for the military in his comedy special, “Comedy from the Corps”, which he produced and which he looks forward to releasing soon.
Always ready to make his audiences laugh, as Adam says, “I may not be there in the morning, but if I’m there at night, you will have a good time.”
