Adam Rich (born on October 12, 1968) is an American actor born in Brooklyn, New York City.

Adam Rich is best remembered for his role as the youngest son, Nicholas Bradford, on the television series Eight is Enough, which ran for 5 seasons from 1977-1981. After leaving that show, he did guest appearances on The Love Boat, CHiPs, Fantasy Island and The Six Million Dollar Man, St. Elsewhere and Baywatch. He had a role in Irwin Allen's short-lived TV series, Code Red. He also did voice work on the cartoon series Dungeons & Dragons, along with Eight is Enough co-star Willie Aames.

In a 1996 spoof article, written with Rich's participation, Might Magazine published a story reporting Rich's purported death during a robbery by an "unemployed dinner theater stagehand." The "story" was an elaborate and meticulously reconstructed time-line of the final years of Rich's life, including his work on an uncompleted independent film known as The Squatter Project, constructed by a friend of Rich's who worked for the magazine. The issue was intended as a satire of so-called "death issues" published by magazines such as People, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and others, when popular celebrities have died. This event is chronicled in Dave Eggers's A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, with semi-factual explanation of the events and exposition on the significance behind such an event. Eggers was a founder of Might Magazine.
