In 2014 Adam became a team captain with Ella Hooper on the all-new Spicks and Specks hosted by Josh Earl on ABC TV. Adam has appeared as a guest on such embarrassing ventures as Celebrity Dog School, Celebrity Splash, Hole in the Wall (what is it with all the swimming pools?), and The Footy Show. He has also appeared in more classy fare, like Can of Worms, Chelsea Lately, Rove and Tractor Monkeys.
He is the co-writer and co-star of the 2012 ABC TV comedy series Outland, about a group of gay science fiction fans, and a producer and presenter of podcasts The Shelf (with Justin Hamilton).
Dave Smiedt – Described by Adam Hills, host of “Spicks and Specks” as “a living breathing joke machine”. David is the author of six humorous books and writes for a wide range of magazines. In fact, he is the only journalist in Australian publishing history to be in concurrent issues of lads-mag Ralph and Your Garden. Topical, charming and equally comfortable in all mediums, David’s comedy will entertain and uplift.
