#20 - London Calling feat. Adam Bloom

Play

Sorry for the delay, I've been a bit sick but this episode is worth the wait... ADAM BLOOM!

Adam (@adambloomie2) is a veteran of the UK comedy circuit & television for the last 25 years who's never stopped evolving his act, his joke writing is legendary and he's basically an encyclopaedia of comedy wisdom.

I got him on because he grew up in the suburbs of London, moved to Soho, then to Green Park and finally to Zone 7 - before getting back in the mix in Crouch End. He's the first comedian I've met who won't leave London even though he's got 2 kids. He rocked up wearing a flat cap, smart watch and vaping - we get to that - and I ask him why Zone 7 didn't work for him. 

Chatting gentrification he mentions A Tribe Called Quest - We The People.

Also the Wikipedia page for Jewish populations around the world is here.

Less Stress = More Laughter With Stand-Up Comedian Adam Bloom

Play
Read more

There’s nothing like a deadline that could get you hyped and be doing what you need to be doing. That’s according to Adam Bloom, our guest for today’s episode of the Serial Stress Killer Podcast. Adam Bloom is an award-winning stand-up comedian and has been touring around the world to perform.

Adam Bloom chats with Chris Hackett, your host, on how he manages to be as funny and successful as he can be in his profession without being dragged down by stress. Discover the ins and outs of the professional comedy world in the countries he’s been. Adam acknowledges that humour can be universal or local. And, that’s what Adam is great at – to be able to transcend through the difference and indifference of people. Adam sees to it that he gives his best and refuses to be affected by the pressure in every performance he does. Listen as he shares how he ‘negates’ stress and how he manages to see it the other way around to make it beneficial for his career and day-to-day life.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Adam Bloom shares his stand-up comedy experience in different countries. He compares how different the humour is for different cultures. The language barrier is a big factor that Adam has been trying to beat to effectively communicate his punch lines. He shares that one time, he had to memorize a one-liner in the foreign language to get the most out of the audience's time.
  • In what way does stress manifest itself in professional comedy? Adam shares that making sure that putting up a great show on time is sometimes difficult to manage especially if some technical and organizational problems happen. Adam does a few gigs a night so to arrive early for the gigs and not get the schedule tangled up is a priority of his.
  • Don't let stress affect your performance. Adam says that once you've alleviated the stress and do what you got to do, there's a feeling of relief and fulfilment. It's more different when at the very start you never knew you could do it.
  • Sleep is very important for us to stay healthy and not get stressed. It’s a form of reset which clears your head and makes you gain the energy back needed for the next day.
  • Adam ‘negates’ the effects of stress. For example, when he’s about to catch the earliest train, he’ll see to it that he gets there 3-5 minutes early but if he, by chance, misses it, he uses the time to get some coffee. At least, he still gets to arrive on time wherever he’s going.
  • What techniques does Adam use to lessen the stress during a stand-up gig? “If you can’t do anything, you just have to stop thinking about it. and if you stop thinking about it, you stopped being stressed.” – Adam

BEST MOMENTS

  • "That mind field... you're walking through your gig knowing that at any given moment, a joke will suddenly fail. You're not in your comfort zone because you're going, "Does this work?" So, the second night you're there is great because you find out what you did wrong." – Adam
  • "Being put under pressure means you have to do something... If you cannot do anything, then stress is wasted energy." – Adam
  • "I'd rather be stressed than bored and I'd rather be under pressure than bored." – Adam
  • “If you have the ability to clear your head, it’s a really really powerful thing.” – Chris

So...we're into our second month of podcasting with this episode. December 1st 2017! If you're reading this in the distant future...phew...good to know there is a future! This week we sat with Adam Bloom. Adam is one of my favourite comedians with a very unique brand of comedy that is cerebral and sometimes surreal, yet quick! We talked about how Adam knew he was a comedian from age 9, becoming a Vegetarian and, as usual, our quick fire questions.

Thanks again this week to our sponsor - www.gcsservicesuk.com

Adam Bloom has been performing stand up for 23 years. He's sold out Edinburgh Fringe runs, he's appeared on TV, he's written for other comedians and is a regular on the corporate circuit. He's done it all and in this podcast we attempt to get to the bottom of how you can do it all as well!

I got him on the podcast to talk about...


  • His thoughts on social media and how he uses it
  • How he sold out all of his Edinburgh Fringe runs.
  • Why he’s not been back to Edinburgh for over 5 years.
  • His thoughts on Free vs Paid Fringe.
  • How long did it take him to become a full time comedian and can what he did be done now?
  • Advice on getting and storming corporate gigs.
  • Why he actually likes corporate gigs more than clubs.
  • Can he make a living from the live circuit alone?
  • His opinions on TV panel shows and why he’s not on them any more.

AND MORE!


This podcast would be useful to anyone who wants to go full time as a performer and wants to know what the reality of that is like but also performers who want to get into other areas of the business such as writing for other acts or doing corporate gigs.

My 2nd book is finally out! It's called "How To Make A Living By Working For Free" and you can buy it here for £5 (digital) or £8 (paperback). Here's the synopsis of the book - 


The book is a how-to guide for artists to create their own online community for their work and how that community can support the artist to become sustainable in every way.


The book takes a critical and in-depth look at the media's perception of "free content" vs the reality of what the general public see it as.


If you're an artist in the modern age who wants a sustainable audience you're no longer just an artist, you're a community leader.


If you'd like to read the first few chapters of the book you can find a PDF version of that here.
