A regular at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, his many shows include Jokémon!, The Comedy Zone, Adam Hess: Mustard, and Adam Hess: My Grandad Has A Fringe.

In 2015 he was a nominee for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer at his show Adam Hess: Salmon, and in 2016 he appeared in three episodes of The Funny Thing About..., a Channel 5 comedy show featuring talking heads, discussing a number of topics such as relationships, dating, and the festive season.

A prolific stand-up across a lengthy career to date, he has featured on such shows as Tonight At The London Palladium, Live From The BBC, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, The Chris Ramsey Show, and Stand Up Sketch Show. Alongside this work, he has also written for, and appeared as an ensemble actor on, the 2016 ITV2 sketch show @Elevenish, and also featured in series 2 of BBC Two sitcom Count Arthur Strong.
