The Grawlix and Adam Cayton-Holland

The Grawlix is the comedy supergroup comprised of Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl. Their live show combines their excellent stand-up with live sketches and video components.

They brought entirely new material every month, which won them sold-out crowds show after show and were named one of Variety’s Top Ten Comedy Comics to Watch in 2015. They began to produce a video for each show, which grew into a web series which has since evolved into the sitcom Those Who Can’t, now in it’s third season on TruTV.

The Grawlix are a mainstay on the festival circuit, having performed at Bridgetown, New York Comedy Fest, LA Riot, and SXSW among others. The group’s members have a combined 36 years stand-up experience, and have appeared on Conan, Adam Devine’s House Party and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
