Adam Nelson began his career with an actor’s grant for gifted and talented children after an appearance on the Jerry Lewis annual Telethon. He was associated with some of New York’s most notable groups including Naked Angels, Cucaracha, Manhattan Class Company, Circle Rep, Arden Party and the Adobe Theater Company. In 1997, he was granted exclusive rights by the Lenny Bruce Estate, Bruce's mother Sally Marr, and producer Marvin Worth to produce and perform his one-person show How to Talk Dirty and Influence People: The Story of Lenny Bruce which moved Off-Broadway. Performances benefited God’s Love We Deliver and received critical acclaim from the Village Voice which praised his rendition as “restless, brilliant and hilarious” and TimeOut New York’s chief theater critic, Sam Whitehead, branded him “an impresario, a notorious theatrical madman.” After the tragedy of September 11th, he co-produced The 24 Hour Plays to aid The NY State WTC Relief Fund with a cast that included Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rosie Perez, Mary-Louise Parker, Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei, Kyra Sedgwick, Scarlett Johansson, Liev Schreiber, Robert Sean Leonard, Sam Rockwell, and more. He founded his independent creative agency Workhouse in 1999. Widely regarded for original thinking, imaginative ideas and strikingly unique hands-on approach, Workhouse brings a keen understanding and deep expertise to contemporary communications. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Nelson received the Clutch Global Leadership Award this year in recognition of his unorthodox industry command. In creating Boy Scout Nelson aims to honor the original spirit of those who continue to break revolutionary new ground through a wellspring of popular, untraditional, gay, and concrete culture. Listen and learn.
