He is a member of the New York Friar’s Club, one of the most prestigious groups of comedians and entertainers in the country, and has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, throughout the United States, and in Germany and Australia. In 2018 he was a finalist in the China International Standup Competition, despite knowing zero Mandarin and despising communism.
As a political comic he’s entertained numerous think tanks and advocacy groups, sinister political action committees, and opened for William Shatner at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas. He’s a regular at Electoral Dysfunction at the People’s Improv Theater in New York, and the Totally Dishonest Media Show at Stand Up New York.

Libertarian Candidate for President of the United States
“I’m running to be the Libertarian Candidate for President to reduce the scope of the Federal Government to its Constitutionally-defined role and return all other powers back to the States, which can, in turn, return them to the individual where it rightly belongs.”
Libertarian Candidate for Vice President
“I’m running to be the Libertarian Candidate for Vice President because I have watched the internal politics and back biting needlessly divide the party over hair splitting details. I have watched the message of individual liberty get unnecessarily muddled and watered down.”
My name is Adam Kokesh and I’m running for Not-President of the United States with the Libertarian Party on the platform of the peaceful, responsible dissolution of the entire federal government. This is the revolution you’ve been waiting for. https://kokeshforpresident.com/
