Jeremy Adams
Jeremy Adams
Ten years ago, Jeremy S. was a successful young comedian and actor. He appeared on​ Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, NBC's Last Comic Standing, and a bunch of other stuff. He worked at the best comedy clubs in the city and lived in a perfectly fine-sized apartment with his girlfriend. He even had a podcast before literally everyone had a podcast. Then, inexplicably, he quit comedy cold turkey. He finished college, married his girlfriend, went to law school, and had a bunch of kids. Now, Jeremy S. is a husband, father, and lawyer. And he still lives in the same apartment, which is no longer perfectly fine-sized. In desperate need of positive attention and someplace else to go, he recently returned to his stand up roots. He was quickly welcomed back to all the clubs and has picked up right where he left off ten years ago. Because Jeremy S. needs to keep the lawyer gig to feed his kids, though, he doesn't tell you what the S stands for in his bio, and he performs under the fake name Jeremy Adams.
