Top 20 Jews In The Arts-Adam Shenkman

Over the next 20 days, ShalomLife will be presenting the Top 20 Jews In The Arts. One artist will be featured a day from various disciplines including visual arts, acting, writing, comedy, and music.

We sent the participating artists the same 30 questions with instructions to answer all, or just a few. Have fun learning about these fascinating individuals, and please check back daily to compare their answers. Enjoy!

Adam Shenkman

Mr. Shenkman is quite a busy man. He performs regularly throughout Los Angeles with his “progressive, radically unique comedy styling”. He has appeared at the Comedy Store, Upright Citizen’s Brigade, and The Improv.

He organizes unique experiences called “Legendary Shows”. Whether he is running around in his underwear, eating Thanksgiving Dinner on stage with his family, or interviewing an Elvis mannequin, his shows are guaranteed to entertain.

Currently, he is the co-creator and star of the hit kids show, The Breakfast Show. It’s a live talk show for children based around the spirit of breakfast!
