An internationally-acclaimed live act, headliner Adam Hess is an Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated chap and star of ITV’s Tonight at the London Palladium & The Stand-Up Sketch Show as well as Live from the BBC. He's five foot eleven, he hates other families' plates, and he had his 18th birthday party on a riverboat on the Thames so when people realised how boring it was they couldn't leave.
