Confused? Struggling to raise kids who are consuming a steady diet of Tablets, Smartphones, and Apps? How’d things get so off-kilter? And whose fault is it anyway!?

We don’t have a clue how to fix it…. But we sure can spend a couple of hours laughing about it!

COMEDIANS’ BIOS

 ADAM OLIENSIS

In his stand-up, Adam explores the lessons in humility he’s learning from his wife and children, along with the adjustments being forced on him by being a grown-up. Having lived as a child in East Africa, studied martial arts in India, and languished spiritually in New Jersey, Adam is attuned to the absurdities that arise in the everyday, mining the ironies and silliness found in the most humbling situations (with which he continues to gain vast experience).

Adam recently appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central.  He has opened for such comedy legends and luminaries as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried, and Larry Miller. He performs at comedy clubs all over NYC and the surrounding area, including Gotham Comedy Club, Comic Strip Live, Levity Live, and Broadway Comedy Club. Also at corporate & private events, synagogues, theatres, & JCCs throughout the Northeast.

Adam’s debut comedy album, “Aged Whine” was released earlier this year and can be purchased at www.adamoliensis.com or at www.lohudcomedy.com

He co-authored the movie, The Pompatus of Love, with Jon Cryer (Best Comedy, Worldfest-Charlotte), in which he stars along with Mr. Cryer and Kristen Scott Thomas. His plays have been produced by Ensemble Studio Theatre, among other companies in NYC, as well as in LA and regionally.  As an actor, Adam has appeared on Broadway, Off Broadway, in Regional Theatre, in the movies, on TV, and in hundreds of commercials.

He has been nominated for a Clio Award (the Oscars of commercials) for Best Performance. He’s also been nominated for both Tony & Drama Desk Awards for Best Revival. (And, no, it’s not an honor just to be nominated. Just being nominated sucks.)
