"Sam was hired to be more of an emcee than a comedian. However we needed his comedic talents during an AV breakdown and he saved the day. Both professional AND funny, he was just the ticket for our corporate conference."
- Vicki M., Denver CO
"Sam was great! His clean style is no limit to his talent. Even in a pub full of college students he keeps his material clean, appropriate, and leaves the audience anything but silent. Was very low maintenance and easy to work with. I can't thank Sam Adams enough for making our fundraiser for Leukemia a great success! I also cannot recommend Sam highly enough especially if you need a clean comedian, and even you don't need a clean comedian, like I said, the lack of profanity is no limit to Sam's comedic talent. Book Sam, and you will not regret it!"
- Brian L., Fundraiser, Denver CO
