David Adlam

David Adlam is an actor, writer and director. He grew up in Hobart, Tasmania, where he began acting in theatre at a young age. The most notable of the productions he starred in was the world premiere of For the Term of His Natural Life.

David moved to Sydney to study film production at The University of Technology. His graduate film, Tape Over Me, appeared in festivals both in Australia and overseas, including the St. Louis International Film Festival. He also received an ATOM Award for his short musical comedy film, The Janitor.

David is currently developing a comedy series in collaboration with celebrated author Mark Isaacs (The Undesirables, The Kabul Peace House) titled Jumping the Queue – a dangerously hilarious sitcom tackling the world’s most controversial issue: immigration.

David’s short film, Knight on the Rim, is currently in post-production and his acting credits include the hilariously black comedy horror feature Two Heads Creek.
