"I have asthma, allergies, a lazy eye, and my last name is 'Blank'...."
Stand up comedy came pretty naturally to Adam Blank. "People have been laughing at me since I was a kid, whether I liked it or not. I figured I might as well get in on the joke."
A life-long comedy fan, Adam decided to "hit reset" at the age 32, walking away from his day job as a forklift operator to become a stand up comedian. Today, he's considered one of the funniest comics in Western Canada. He has been invited to appear at both the Grindstone & Edmonton Comedy Festivals, and has performed in comedy clubs all across Canada. He also hosts a weekly show at 'Rick Bronson's The Comic Strip' in West Edmonton Mall, one of the top comedy clubs in the country. In 2019, he was named "Edmonton's Funniest Person".
In addition to stand up, Adam has been featured on Shaw TV, and appeared alongside Hopper Penn & UFC Star Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in the feature film "Puppy Love". He also hosts 'Remember The Game?', one of the most popular video game podcasts on the internet.
Combining his self-deprecating sense of humour with "in the moment" audience interaction, Adam's laid-back, happy-go-lucky stage presence charms audiences of all ages.
"All I want out of comedy is to earn a living, and to show people that you're never too old to chase a dream...
...and to meet Bill Murray."
