He has appeared on CONAN, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, Happy Endings, Deadbeat, Flophouse, Hidden America and @midnight. He has also been featured on WTF with Marc Maron, Nerdist, Comedy Bang Bang and Sklarbro County podcasts.

He has also performed at The Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.

Adam has three albums, “I Don’t Know If I Happy,” “Backyards,” and “Adam Cayton-Holland Performs His Signature Bits,” all available on iTunes, and his first book, Tragedy Plus Time, was published by Touchstone Books in 2018. Adam lives with his wife Katie, his son Malcolm, and a purebred Chesapeake Retriever named Annabel Lee. He once threw out the opening pitch at a Colorado Rockies game and people have described him as “genial,” and “with decent teeth.”
