Away from the cult partnership with Joe Cornish, Adam’s credits include The IT Crowd, The Last Chancers and film roles in Stardust and Hot Fuzz.

 


Biography

Together with comedy partner Joe Cornish, actor, writer and presenter Adam Buxton created and hosted the pioneering cult Channel 4 series The Adam & Joe Show. The pair also presented their own show on BBC 6Music and Adam hosted and co-created BUG, a live tour through the strange, innovative and exciting world of music videos and short films on the internet which was also broadcast on Sky. He also fronts his eponymous podcast where he chats with interesting cultural figures, from comedians to actors.

Adams’s first TV role was on Channel 4's Takeover TV, as a man called Louise dressed as a Klingon bemoaning the end of Star Trek. Since then Adam has appeared in a wealth of TV comedy including The IT Crowd, Have I Got News for You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Doctor Who, and The Last Chancers - as well as Adam & Joe Go Tokyo and Adam & Joe’s American Animation Adventure.

On film, Adam appeared alongside alongside Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in their cop comedy Hot Fuzz, with a host of Hollywood stars including Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer in Stardust, and in the acclaimed British indie film Son of Rambow.

Adam made his theatrical debut in I, Pavel - which chronicled the most passionate, most intense and least talented European avante-garde artist of the last 50 years. The show combined short films and standup. Adam’s short film creations have gathered their own following on YouTube and featured in his Sky show BUG. These short films also feature in his awards hosting duties and he has created unique opening sequences for events, including one in which The Queen improbably talks about her favourite music video.
