Adam also runs an open mic poetry night called Celebration of Word in which anyone can get up and perform no matter they’re experience level or art form.

He has was a finalist in the Hilarity Bites competition 2019 and a semi finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian competition 2019.
“ Andrew Thompson delivers an incredibly entertaining journey for the audience with impeccable timing. He brings a little something extra for people who regularly watch comedy and appreciate it as an art.”
