Adam Hunter discovered his talent in comedy back when he was in college. He was a member of the wrestling team then and had to stay at his dorm every Thursday because he has matches every Fridays. During these nights, he would usually make prank calls on the local public access TV station, inserting dumb comments while the panels are in a serious discussion. He had his debut as a stand-up comedian about ten years ago at Stand Up NY in New York City. Since then, he has devoted his time in pursuing a career as a comic. Adam Hunter’s worst fear is to stand in front of a crowd who would not laugh at his jokes.
