Adam Brodsky is a Jewish American anti-folk singer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He frequently refers to himself as "the Dork", or "Dorkboy".


Brodsky's songs typically feature self-deprecation, religion (especially Judaism), suicide, and rejection. His albums often include banter made between sets during performances.

In 2000, Brodsky was named the Best Folk Performer in the Philadelphia City Paper Music Awards. That year, he also developed a side project called, "A Brief History of Folk Music." Contrary to his raucous antifolk shows, it was primarily aimed at children.

Between August 3, 2003 and September 21, 2003, Brodsky set the Guinness World Record for the Fastest Tour by Solo Performer with fifty shows in fifty states in fifty days, and then performed in Washington DC the following night.

Brodsky allows audience members to record his live performances. In 2003, Mary Krause of Permanent Records gave permission for fan-made recordings of Brodsky's shows to be hosted on the Internet Archive.


Adam removed himself from his self imposed "hibernation" and went back on the road April 2, 2008 with shows in Hoboken, NJ; Boston, MA; Schenectady, NY and Ithaca, NY. On tour with him is Steph Hayes [1] from Steph Hayes and The Good Problems [2]. They are doing a co-headlining tour where they trade off songs and banter with the audience.
