…this show is mightily impressive. She tells us that she’s obsessed with stand up, that she wants to do nothing else. Well, she’s bloody good at it.”

Maisie brings her debut Edinburgh show to Soho

“I’m ridiculously excited to bring my debut Edinburgh show to Soho. Having been to see so many brilliant shows there in the past – both in-house productions and Edinburgh shows. I didn’t get the chance to see up at the Fringe. I’m genuinely honoured to be performing there myself. Bring it on!” MAISIE ADAM

Within a year of starting stand-up (her first-ever show was 45 minutes which she thought was ‘normal’!). Maisie won the biggest stand-up comedy newcomer competition, becoming the 4th woman to have done so in its’ 30 years.  Since then she has opened for major comedians, with her refreshing anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm winning her praise up and down the country.

In ‘Vague’, which sold out its Edinburgh run at the Gilded Balloon as well as extra shows. The northerner and self-confessed “Slave to the Sesh” relays her experiences of navigating the recklessness of youth whilst dealing with epilepsy – a medical condition that requires you to be a “Sensible Susan”.

“…her comedy and charismatic delivery that ensures Adam has a magnetic stage presence. For some, Vague may be described as old-fashioned, but it’s simply good stand-up delivered by a new professional.”

“…Big things were expected of last year’s So You Think You’re Funny winner, Maisie Adam in her debut hour, and big things were delivered. The humour is nostalgic and anecdotal. The venue may be tiny but the talent is not. Go see Maisie Adam now and have bragging rights for years to come.”
