Adam West: Ketchum, Idaho
Adam West, Iconic Actor, is a longtime resident in the resort community of Ketchum, Idaho. In the 1960s, Adam West skyrocketed to fame with the mega-hit TV show “Batman” (1966-68), with a branded character that continues to be featured in TV, films, and, of course, graphic novels, more than 40 years after its debut. “While Batman, and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne, remain Mr. West’s signature role, Adam has added a multitude of motion picture, theater, and TV credits to his name." It is his impeccable timing, comedic wit and knack of continually picking such landmark projects as “Batman”, Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999), and the cult classic pilot “Lookwell” (1991), written and produced by Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel, that has ensured his success. In fact, today, Adam West's unmistakable voice has defined such characters as “Uncle Art” in Disney’s Meet the Robinsons (2007), and a campy recurring send-up of himself, as “Mayor Adam West” on FOX’s animated hit, “Family Guy”!
