Join us Father's Day for Dad, (and Granddad!), Sam Adams!

If you are not familiar with Sam Adams, then here’s your introduction.

Sports writer-turned-stand-up comedian. Keynote speaker. Author. Commercial actor. Master of Ceremonies.

Sam’s entertaining profanity-free comedy performances earned him high praise at the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival. His humor and smooth stage presence has led to many requests to serve as Master of Ceremonies for high profile events.

Sam’s popularity catapulted when the True Color clip from his Dry Bar Comedy special went viral — with more than 10 million social media views in less than 72 hours. Since, the clip has reached more than 35 million views on Facebook alone.

Before stand-up, Sam spent three decades as a sports writer and television commentator based in Denver, CO. In 2003 Sam’s media peers elected him Colorado’s Print Journalist of the Year. In 2019, Sam was the first African-American sports journalist ever inducted to the prestigious Denver Press Club’s Hall of Fame.

For Sam’s first book, titled If You Don’t Believe Me: Lessons Learned From Listened To The Greats, Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway offered the following tribute: “Through the ups and downs of an NFL career, I developed great trust, respect and appreciation for Sam. Blending an uncanny ability to mix humor with keen insight and knowledge, Sam is a one-of-a-kind storyteller.”
