About Adam Buxton
With their many subsequent TV projects (including Takeover TV, Shock Video and Adam 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 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 of Supergrass.
Amongst other corporate events, Adam has hosted the glamorous BAFTA Video Game Awards, the YouTube Music Awards, the Q Awards, the CADS (creative and design) Awards, and Central Office of Information (COI) Anniversary launch night at the National Film Theatre.
