Fans in Oxfordshire of Live at The Apollo, Mock The Week and The Last Leg, and Best Newcomer nominee Maisie Adam will be delighted she is back with a brand-new show for 2022: Buzzed.
How often do you hear about a stand-up newcomer, completely inexperienced, doing a full hour set for their first ever gig? Not often I imagine, but that is exactly what Yorkshire-born Maisie Adam did in 2016. And that’s not all: a few short months later she won the UK’s largest stand-up contest, and now she is breaking through to the big time with upcoming appearances on Have I Got News For You, A League of Their Own, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Mock The Week. In 2022, she is ready to take the nation by storm with her first UK tour!
Maisie Adam’s comedy career kicked off in 2017, when she entered the nationwide So You Think You’re Funny? competition (which has previously been won by many of her comedy heroes, including Peter Kay, Aisling Bea and Tom Allen). Before she knew it, she found herself with a place in the Grand Final, held at the Gilded Balloon at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and on 24th August she won the competition – becoming only the fourth woman to have done so in its 30-year history.
The following year, Maisie was nominated for the Best Newcomer award at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for her debut show Vague, where she also won the Amused Moose National Comic Award.
Maisie’s anecdotal material and witty charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country, and she has appeared on Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You, QI, Roast Battle, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Hypothetical and The Stand-Up Sketch Show. She also hosts the podcast That’s A First, alongside fellow comedian Tom Lucy.

Who is Maisie Adam?
Maisie Adam was born and raised in Pannal, North Yorkshire and is a trained actress and sitcom writer but struggled to find work. This pushed to her to try stand-up, with her first gig a one-hour show was called Living on the Edge at the Ilkley Literature Festival fringe in October 2016.
Adam gained attention when she won the national contest So You Think You’re Funny for new stand-up acts at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which led to getting signed by an agent.
In 2018 Adam’s was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards for her solo show Vague and the Amused Moose National New Comic Award.
Adam’s first UK and European tour was her 2019 show Hang Fire and in the same year she made her first television appearance as a comedian on ITV2’s The Stand-Up Sketch Show.
Adam’s is best known for her work on Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats, QI, Have I Got News for You, The Last Leg, Richard Osman’s House of Games, Roast Battle and Would I Lie To You?
