BiographyAustralians will best know Adam Hills as the host of the fun music quiz show Spicks and Specks on ABC TV, alongside team captains Alan Brough and Myf Warhurst. Adam'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.
When he is not on Spicks, Adam is one of Australia's most talented and well-travelled comedians. His positive, energetic comedy and rampant spontaneity have won him universal acclaim, rave reviews and a swag of awards throughout Australia, Great Britain, 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 and 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.
Adam has also been known to host at least one Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala for Network TEN and has stuck his nose around backstage at the 2005 and 2006 Logie Awards for the Nine Network.
In 2007, Adam headed out on his most comprehensive Australian stand up tour ever, kicking off in
Adelaide and stopping off in every capital city. Later that year and early 2008, the success of Spicks and Specks had elevated to a whole new level, hitting the stage for a national-wide live tour, thrilling thousands of Australian fans, who got to participate in the show and come face-to-face with Adam, Alan and Myf.
