Adam Jackman’s work has been called “howlingly funny” by the LA Times, “hilarious“ by Variety, and “rickety” by the NY Times. As a writer, director, and producer, his credits include international campaigns for The CLIO Image Awards, Disney Parks, Banana Republic, and Target/Nate Berkus; sold-out shows at Lincoln Center, Lee Strasberg, The New York Musical Theatre Festival, and 54 Below; and covers for GQ and Vanity Fair with Jeff Bridges, Liam Neeson, LeBron James, Seth Rogen, Bill Murray, and Beyoncé. He outran Oprah in the the Chicago Marathon, and as chronicled on Bravo’s My Life on the D List, he apologized for Kathy Griffin’s behavior everywhere from the streets of Los Angeles to the Emmy Awards. He is the co-writer of R.R.R.E.D. The Secret Musical, with a cast album available on iTunes, and the co-creator of Death Betty, a comic book about love and punching that debuted this year from Castle & Key Publications.
