Introduction: As seen on, "THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH," at FOXWOODS RESORT & CASINO, & GOTHAM COMEDY CLUB in NYC! Also on SIRIUS XM RADIO'S "RAW DOG COMEDY." Hi. Thanks for checking out my profile. I get a huge kick out of what I do. I hope you will too. In my Stand-Up, I explore the lessons in humility I'm learning from my wife and especially from my kids. Also how trying to be a grown-up, and starting to get old, have forced me to grow and change. I try to be tuned in to the ironies and silliness that that arise in the most humbling situations. (I'm getting lots of chances to practice.) Please check out my videos and sample my new album, "Aged Whine," posted in my profile & on my Website; playing now on Raw Dog Comedy, SiriusXM 99. Or you can call or email me, and I'll send you clips. My material includes lots of stuff about love, marriage, family, having kids, being a parent, a husband, dealing with aging parents, raising toddlers and teenage daughters, and financing kids' college educations...all while trying to keep a sense of humor about how we change and evolve as we age. Also, I'll be happy to spend time on the phone learning about your event so I can write material specifically for you and for your guests. The comedy can be G-rated to R-rated, whatever you want! I've been working in comedy for longer than I want to admit. (35 years--oops, I admitted it!) Not just in Stand-Up but also in acting, writing, directing, and producing for TV, theatre, film, and commercials. I've recently opened for such comedy legends and luminaries as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried, and Larry Miller. I perform at comedy clubs all over New York City and the surrounding area, including regularly at Gotham Comedy Club, at Levity Live, Comic Strip Live, Foxwoods Resort & Casino, Dangerfield's, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, and Treehouse Comedy. Also at colleges, corporate & private events, synagogues, theatres, and JCCs throughout the Northeast. ***** Thumbtack has named me The #1 Comic for Hire in NY (Top Pro!) in 7 years running: 2015-'21. ***** Hired 159 times on Thumbtack. (Compare!) ***** 82 Reviews. (Lots of happy people laughing.) ***** Nominated: Tony® Award (The Oscars of Broadway) & Clio Award (Oscars of Commercials). Send me a message, an email, or a text, and we'll set up a time for a quick phone call to discuss your event. If you have any questions or would like more information, let me know. Thanks. Best regards, Adam Oliensis

Beginning with our inquiry seeking a comedian willing to assist us in the development of a virtual comedy event to benefit a nonprofit, we were very pleased with our experience. We received an immediate response to our request and, from that point through the conclusion of our event, the planning and execution of our show was seamless. Our performer was a true professional who provided us with sound advice during our planning stage and a superb performance consisting of comedy that was appropriate for and enjoyed by our audience. I should also note that he took the time to learn about the charity we were supporting and made that clear during the program. He also took time to reach out to us following our event to seek feedback and to assess our satisfaction with his performance. It was a pleasure partnering with LoHud on this important project, I would retain him without hesitancy if I were to plan a similar event and would suggest that anyone considering hosting a professional comedy event would benefit by reaching out LoHud for guidance, support and a quality performance.

We had my dad's 65th birthday coming up and needed to figure out a way to celebrate him in a big way. In the age of COVID, we wanted to make sure that we had a great birthday celebration for him but do it safely. I reached out to Adam to see if he could do a New Years Eve Zoom Comedy Show for us (my dad's birthday is new years eve). He was professional and easy to work with right from the start. We spoke a week ahead of the birthday party so that Adam could get to know our family a little bit and prepare the material that he was going to use during the show. The night of the party, Adam logged into Zoom. Each one of my four siblings and my parents logged in from their respective homes and, with the safety of distance, we had an awesome celebration. Adam's performance was the centerpiece of the night and he was AWESOME. He had all of us laughing so hard for so long our sides hurt, no exaggeration. I couldn't recommend Adam more highly for a special event. I couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate my dad's big birthday. It was very impressive that he was able to get us cracking up, even over a Zoom format. I'd give him ten stars if the site would allow. He totally knocked it out of the park.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Dependent upon type of event, size of crowd, distance traveled, etc. Call to discuss.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I speak on the phone at some length with a new client, to find out about their event, about the group that will be the audience, and about any guest(s) of honor. I gather as much information as I can so that I'll know what sort of humor will be most enjoyable and most appropriate for the occasion.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I read the newspaper and observe my children every damn day! More seriously, I have a BA in Theater from the University of Wisconsin--Madison and I graduated from the Circle in the Square Professional Workshop for Actors (a 2-year conservatory in NYC). I have been working as a professional actor since 1984 and as a professional comedian since 2010
