Maisie Adam is a stand-up comedian and comedy writer.
In 2018 Maisie was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for her debut show ‘Vague’ and was the winner of the Amused Moose National Comic Award.
Maisie returned to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 with her show Hang Fire, which she took on a UK and European tour in 2019/2020
Having only started on the circuit in 2016, her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country.
In 2017, Maisie entered the nationwide comedy competition So You Think You’re Funny? (which has previously been won by many of her comedy heroes, including Peter Kay, Aisling Bea, Tom Allen, David O’Doherty and Lee Mack).
Before she knew it, she found herself with a place in the Grand Final, held at the Gilded Balloon at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and on 24th August she won the competition, becoming only the 4th woman to have done so in its 30-year history.
Maisie has since appeared on shows such as:
- Mock the Week (BBC)
- Have I Got News for You (BBC)
- 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4)
- The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV2)
Furthermore, Maisie has also written and starred in Life Lessons (BBC3).
Maisie Adam is available for live events, conferences and virtual meetings. Her self-deprecating wit and endearing personality are a perfect fit for any corporate event.
