Comedian and actor Adam Buxton first made his name (along with Joe Cornish) with The Adam And Joe Show, a pop culture parody packed review that ran for four series on Channel 4.
The show’s revolutionary home-made approach prefigured Internet sites such as YouTube, where new and old ‘Adam and Joe’ clips are watched by millions.
With their many subsequent TV projects (includingTakeover TV,Shock VideoandAdam and Joe Go Tokyo!) and radio shows (including shows on XFM and BBC Radio 6 Music), Adam and Joe have continued to build a major cult following as comedy commentators on the absurdities of the Media, consumer culture and everyday life.
Independently, Adam Buxton has acted in a number of programmes including The Last Chancers (which he co-wrote), The IT Crowd, Time Trumpet and Rush Hour. His most recent film appearances have been in Hot Fuzz and Stardust. Adam also starred in The Persuasionists, a BBC 2 sitcom, which was first aired in January 2010.
Adam’s live show BUG, in which he reviews music videos and examines the absurdities of YouTube comments, attracts a dedicated audience and in 2012 was made into a TV show for Sky Atlantic.
In 2014 Adam introduced us to his shed in a one off Christmas special,Adam Buxton’s Shed of Christmas (Burning Bright). Set in, you guessed it, Adam’s shed, he took us through a list of festive loves, alongside fan letters and a guest appearance from Gaz Coombes ofSupergrass.
