Adam Buxton is a comedian, TV/radio presenter, actor and writer, who hit the big time - along with fellow comedy performer Joe Cornish - in The Adam And Joe Show, a pop culture parody-packed review that ran for four series on Channel 4. The show's revolutionary homemade approach prefigured internet sites like YouTube, where "Adam and Joe" clips are now watched by millions of ardent fans.
Adam and Joe built on their cult following in subsequent TV projects, including Takeover TV, Shock Video and Adam and Joe Go Tokyo!, and also on radio shows, including Adam and Joe (BBC Radio 6 Music). Adam also presents his own radio show on 6 Music on Sundays, called Adam Buxton's Big Mix Tape.
Adam has played leading comedy roles in a number of TV programmes, including The Last Chancers (which he co-wrote), The IT Crowd, Time Trumpet, Rush Hour and The Persuasionists, and has also appeared in the popular BBC panel shows Have I Got News for You and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Film work includes Hot Fuzz, Stardust and Son of Rambow.
In the Summer of 2012, Adam appeared in a TV version of his popular comedy tour Bug, entitled Adam Buxton's BUG (Sky Atlantic).
Adam and Joe have jointly hosted numerous corporate events, as well as the BAFTA Video Game Awards, Music and Sound Awards, The British Arrows Advertising Awards, the Q Awards, the CADS (creative and design) Awards, and Central Office of Information (COI) Anniversary launch night at the National Film Theatre. Adam is also in popular demand as an Events Host and presenter in his own right.
