Despite being born into a white, upper-middle class family, Adam Cayton-Holland has been able to overcome the numerous non-existent hurdles that have faced him to become by far the funniest comedian on his block. Named one of “25 Comics to Watch” by Esquire magazine, and one of "10 Comics to Watch" by Variety, Adam is a national touring headliner who plays clubs and colleges all over the country.
Adam made his late-night television debut on CONAN. Other recent appearances include Comedy Central’s @midnight, Seeso’s Hidden America With Jonah Ray, Hulu’s Deadbeat, and Viceland’s Flophouse. He’s also participated in comedy festivals like the Montreal Just For Laughs, SXSW, Bridgetown Comedy and San Francisco Sketchfest festivals. He has two albums, I Don’t Know If I Happy and Backyards, both available on iTunes, and he’s currently writing his first book, Tragedy Plus Time, due to be released by Touchstone Books in 2018.
Adam, along with comedians Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl, comprise The Grawlix, a trio that hosted a wildly popular monthly show in Denver for three years and created a mockumentary-style web series following their backstage exploits. The troupe went on to develop a show called Those Who Can’t about dysfunctional teachers, set in Denver. The show premiered on truTV—as its first scripted comedy—on February 11, 2016, and was renewed for a third season in January 2017.
