It’s hard to talk about James Adomian without getting a little gushy; consistently referred to as one of the most talented players in the industry, he’s something of a quadruple-threat, a brilliant actor, improviser, impressionist, and writer whose performances are unpredictable and unmissable. The SXSW Comedy alum has had a whirlwind year of festival dates, tours, and TV appearances -- and this week, he’s celebrating the release of his debut stand-up album, Low Hangin Fruit.Adomian’s well known for his impressions -- he got his small-screen start playing George W. Bush on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and is a frequent guest on podcasts like Sklarboro Country and Comedy Bang! Bang!, where he showcases characters including Jesse Ventura, Huell Howser, and Gary Busey. Recently, he introduced Andy Kindler’s famed “State of the Industry” address at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival with an impression of the elder comic so pitch-perfect, some said he stole the show. At SXSW Comedy 2012, he appeared on a live edition of Comedy Bang! Bang! and was named one of the fest’s MVPs by Huffington Post Comedy.
