Comic Orny Adams has been touring all over the world for over twenty years. With hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, Orny is regarded by his peers as one of the hardest working and passionate comedians in the business. Orny first rose to international prominence after Jerry Seinfeld chose him to co-star in his documentary “Comedian.”
He has made several appearances on The Tonight Show and appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. Orny’s debut DVD “Path Of Most Resistance,” was critically acclaimed and was available on Netflix. That was followed by a powerful and poignant one hour special “Orny Adams Takes The Third” which aired on Comedy Central and Netflix. Currently, and for the past six seasons, Orny can be seen playing the iconic role “Coach Finstock” on the hit MTV show “Teen Wolf,” a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind’s Jeff Davis. Jeff handpicked Orny for the role after seeing him perform at the Hollywood Improv.
Early in his career Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the “go to” guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on Letterman. In 2010, Orny was thrilled to return to the festival in Montreal working alongside one of his favorite comedians Steve Martin on a taped televised stand up show Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a “Stand-out act” by The Hollywood Reporter.
Other notable projects include a talk show pilot developed for Orny by CBS Television Distribution/Kingworld along side Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst Films. Orny shot another pilot for his own late night talk show for TBS and taped his own series, “Modern Chaos with Orny Adams” for The Discovery Channel. He hosted his own show on Discovery’s Travel Channel, has appeared on Jiminy Glick, Tough Crowd on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Last Call With Carson Daly, and did a regular segment on Hollywood and politics on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. You may also recognize him from other notable television appearances and many of his national commercials, including Coca-Cola. Orny made his first TV appearance in 1996 on Friday Night Videos.
When not performing stand-up, Orny spends his days writing, penning scripts, and developing television shows. A few years back, he struck a deal with Endimol for “The Pitch,” a reality show he conceived.
But none of this matters until you see Orny live where he is at his best, deconstructing the chaos of the modern world and getting energized about things that most people just accept. His tour has reached clubs, theatres, even the Staples Center in LA, colleges, corporate events, and festivals as far away as Ireland, Australia, and South Africa. Orny’s comedy style is unique, yet universally appealing.
Orny is quick on his feet to deliver a powerful, clever, sophisticated, and fast paced routine that pounds topics from an angle that many people have never considered.
