We had the good fortune of connecting with Nate Adamsky and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nate, how do you think about risk?
As a stand up comedian I believe that without risk there is never progress. I owe all of my success to risk taking. When I was first starting out as a comedian I took the risk of just getting up on stage and I was not even prepared. Little did I know it would change my life forever. I remember performing at an open mic in NYC at the Broadway Comedy Club and staring at all of the headshots of the greatest comedians I looked up to. I told myself my face would make it up there too. That same night I was approached by an agent and I have now performed in clubs across LA and NYC. If I didn’t take the initial risk of trying at all I wouldn’t be where I’m at in my career today.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Comedy has been the most gratifying experience of my life. I always say that life isn’t fun unless you’re the one making fun of life. I started my career in NYC making jokes about an LA native living in New York. Now I make jokes in LA at some of the most famous clubs in LA. 2020 had been challenging as comic because all of the clubs were closed, but I digress. I see a not so distant future where me and all my fellow comedians are killing it on the stage again soon!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I take pride in playing an LA tour guide! If I were to take anyone anywhere visiting from out of town first I would probably take them to The Griffith Observatory so they could see the city from up high. I love hanging out on Sunset by the Comedy Store where I would make them watch me perform. I used to hangout frequently at The Standard, but sadly it is no longer gonna be around. The beach is a great place to hang out too especially when you’re at Venice. There is something other worldy about the energy there. In n Out obviously would be on the agenda as well. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Growing up I was often told that I would become famous one day by my peers and friends, but no one believed in me more than my mother! My mom has been my biggest supporter and always encourages me to follow my dreams. When I had graduated high school, before I even knew I would become a comedian, my mother gifted me tickets to the watch a comedy show at the Ice House she told me to watch closely and learn because I would be on that stage too one day. 5 years later I was on that very stage telling jokes. My mom keeps me going in my pursuit to entertain.
