Australians will best know Adam 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.
Adam has also bagged a swag of awards in recent years including a Helpmann Award in 2007. He has been a three-time nominee for the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, where he also won the Best of The Fest Award and the Forth Fringe Award. Adam released his second DVD, Adam Hills Live - Joymonger and Characterful in 2008, the highlights of which were also broadcast on ABC as an hour-long special.
In 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.
