Orny Adams is a regular on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and co-starred in the movie “Comedian” with Jerry Seinfeld. Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch on the New York comedy scene. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the go to guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. After thirteen years of performing stand-up comedy, Orny released his critically acclaimed debut comedy DVD/CD “Path Of Most Resistance,” which is in stores now. And currently, CBS Television Distribution and Kingworld, along side Katalyst Films, are developing Orny for a five night a week stripped syndicated show. Orny has a very strong presence on the web. His videos and blogs have been featured on some of the biggest websites, including the front page of Yahoo!, Myspace, and Funnyordie to name a few. When not performing stand-up, Orny spends his days penning scripts and developing television shows. A few years back, he struck a deal with Endimol for a reality show “The Pitch,” he conceived. Orny made his first TV appearance in 1996 on Friday Night Videos. He has since hosted his own show on Discovery’s Travel Channel, has appeared on Jiminy Glick, Tough Crowd on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and Last Call With Carson Daly. Orny shot a pilot for his own late night television talk show for TBS and taped his own series, “Modern Chaos with Orny Adams” for The Discovery Channel.

In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival which resulted in a development deal with the Warner Brothers Studio, and his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. Orny considers himself a student of the art of stand-up comedy and takes his profession very seriously. He has studied his predecessors and even their predecessors. He loves to learn. For the past fourteen years, he has been on a what he dubs the “Neverending Tour.” His tour has reached clubs, theatres, even the Staples Center in LA, colleges, corporate events, and festivals as far away as Ireland and Australia. “The road is life… I didn’t say that. Kerouac did.” Orny’s comedy style is unique, yet universally appealing. Orny is quick on his feet to deliver a clever, sophisticated, and fast paced routine that attacks topics from an angle that many people have never considered. “I question everything. That’s the root of my comedy… and I try to come up with some solutions, but there seem to be more questions than answers.” One minute he’s goofy, the next minute he’s intelligent, and you never completely know when he’s being serious. Most importantly, He was once a paperboy and a native of Boston, Massachusetts. For more information and video clips go to: www.ornyadams.com
