Originally from the UK, Adam Burke began performing stand-up after writing a piece on comedy for a Chicago magazine. Before long, he became a fixture at Midwestern shows and showcases. His absurdist, verbose comedy covers not only the vagaries of life in his adopted hometown of Chicago, but also the usefulness of mammoths, dogs who study law, and the importance of gangland grammar. Burke has been on the syndicated radio program The Bob and Tom Show and on WGN 720 AM locally in Chicago, on the podcasts Doug Loves Movies and The Benson Interruption, plus he was listed as one of the Top 20 Comedians in Chicago by Comedy.com. He has appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland OR, and as part of the TBS Just For Laughs Chicago Festival for three years running. In addition, he has opened for comedians including Jeff Ross, Maria Bamford, Bo Burnham, Brendon Burns, and Jake Johannsen. His debut album, Universal Squirrel Theory, was released on ASpecialThing Records in 2012.
