About Adam Savage

One of the daring co-hosts of Discovery’s Mythbusters, Adam Savage keeps the world wondering what will happen, both on his show and IRL. Building a strong social media following, @therealadamsavage (or @donttrythis on his popular Twitter feed) posts insights into his process and personal life, like videos of his #cosplay creations—he went as Totoro for Halloween this year—and clips from his trips to Comic Con. He interacts with his 1M+ fans across his social pages and in epic Reddit AMA’s, like the one he spent hours on in December 2016, gamely giving advice to burgeoning and veteran creators alike. He took to Twitter to thank everyone for their support of @MythBusters after the show aired its final episode in March.
