Adam Burke began his start-up comedy career after his research for an article on the Chicago (Cubs Suck) stand-up comedy scene for Chicago Social magazine led him to do an open mic night himself.
Early gigs included co-hosting a Wednesday night open mic with Cameron Esposito at Cole's Bar in Chicago, Illinois. His influences include Spike Milligan, Bill Hicks and Steve Martin. Burke was voted Best Standup by readers of The Chicago Reader in 2014, and won Second City's Up Next Comedy Competition.
He has performed in comedy festivals such as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland Oregon, Just for Laughs Chicago, and Funny Or Die's Oddball Comedy Festival. He has opened for comedians including Marc Maron, Jeff Ross, Hannibal Burress, John Mulaney, Hari Kondabolu, Maria Bamford, Michael Ian Black, Kumail Nanjiani, John Oliver, Tracy Morgan and Aziz Ansari.
