Adam Hills is one of Australia’s best-known comedians, mainly as the five times Gold Logie nominated host of his two hit ABC TV series – the music quiz show Spicks and Specks and his unique take on the late night talk show, Adam Hills Tonight.
Spicks and Specks were ABC TVs highest rating program for seven years and the anchor for its highly successful Wednesday night comedy line up.

Adam Hills Tonight was a show that mixed celebrity guests including Whoopi Goldberg, KD Lang, Barry Humphries and John Cleese, with audience engagement, elevating everyday people to celebrity status.
Already a gold-plated star in Australia, Adam Hills has now taken the UK by storm with his own talk show on Channel Four - The Last Leg. Originally a one-off series for the 2012 London Paralympics, the poms loved him so much it has been on air ever since.
When Adam isn’t dominating the global TV landscape, he is usually somewhere in the world with a mic in hand doing his day job - globetrotting stand-up comedian. Adam has conquered Edinburgh and featured in more Montreal festivals than any other Australian. In 2015 his global tour Clown Heart debuted with a sell-out season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and continue to pack houses at the Sydney Opera House, Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
