1990-2005: Adam Christing began an organization called "Clean Comedians" in 1990.

The “Clean Comedians” roster features dozens of curse-free comedians and variety acts that Christing booked into hundreds of events each year with the money-back guarantee: "If it isn't funny, we'll refund your money!"

In 1996-1997, Random House published Christing's book COMEDY COMES CLEAN: A Hilarious Collection of Wholesome Jokes, Quotes, and One-Liners.

A number of performers who started with Christing went on to make a splash in various entertainment outlets. The late Steve Bridges became America's number one George W. Bush impersonator as "Mr. President." Scott Derrickson, who put himself through film school doing gigs for "Clean Comedians" became a film director (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Stood Still).

In 2005, Christing sold the Clean Comedians bureau to businessman Corey Ford.

2006–Present: Christing created a website for spiritual seekers called www.themeaningoflife.com to pursue his lifelong interest in philosophy and religion. To launch the site, he offered a prize of $10,000 for the best answer to the question, "What is the meaning of life?" The site and contest made news at MSNBC.com, and many people submitted thought-provoking entries.

In 2009 Christing released his "mockumentary" film Change Your Life! which spoofs multi-level marketing and get-rich-quick schemes.

In 2011 He produced the historical documentary A Mormon President about the assassination of presidential candidate Joseph Smith.

In the summer of 2012, Christing re-acquired CleanComedians.com. One comedian commented, "Adam Christing is like Steve Jobs returning to Apple...except he doesn't have cancer or billions of dollars."
