Adam Richard

A stand-up comedian since 1997, Adam has performed all over Australia, Britain and the USA. He began his gossip queen career as Triple J’s Mister Bitch (2002/3) and spent eight years as The Fabulous Adam Richard, part of Melbourne’s FM breakfast team, The Matt and Jo Show on 101.9 Fox FM. In 2010, he joined the breakfast teams on Adelaide’s SA.FM and Perth’s 92.9.

Adam has appeared as a guest on such embarrassing ventures as Celebrity Dog School, Hole In The Wall, The Footy Show and Celebrity Splash! Australia. He has also appeared in more classy fare, like Sleuth 101, Rove and Spicks and Specks (where his impression of an Australian Idol audition remains the most viewed Spicks and Specks clip on YouTube).

Adam was a national finalist in the 1997 Raw Comedy competition. He was the recipient of a Moosehead Award grant in 1998 for his first ever full-length stand-up comedy show Tragedy. In ‘98 he also played Sydney and Edinburgh in the live show oz.dot.comedy with Carl Barron, the subject of a Comedy Channel documentary directed by Kevin Carlin. In ‘99 Adam made his commercial television debut performing stand-up comedy on Hey Hey It’s Saturday. He has self-produced several shows for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival since 1999’s Adam Richard in Disgrace.

Adam has been a regular guest on ABC’s The Glass House and Spicks & Specks and Network Ten’s 9am and Rove Live, where he once had 300 nude men run at him!

In 2006 Adam co-wrote and co-starred in a short film called Outland, which was based around a group of gay science fiction fans. In 2011, Outland became a 6-part television series produced by Princess Pictures and directed by Kevin Carlin, it aired on ABC1 and starred Adam as Fab.

In 2014 Adam starred on the revamped version of popular music game show Spicks & Specks as team captain on ABC1, and performed Gaypocalypse his first solo festival show in seven years at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. In 2015, he returned to MICF with his show #FGT.

From 2010 to 2015, Adam made up one third of the hilarious weekly podcast Talking Poofy alongside Toby Sullivan and Scott Brennan. He is currently a writer on ABC comedy quiz series Hard Quiz, co-host of the live show and podcast The Shelf with Justin Hamilton and a panellist on ABC2 series Whovians, a show dedicated to the Doctor Who fandom.
