About

Widely tipped as one to watch for the future, Maisie Adam is relative newcomer to the comedy circuit, having only started out in 2016, however her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country.

After previewing her first stand-up show Living On The Edge at the Ilkley Fringe, she then took the debut show on tour across the UK. After receiving positive reviews from runs at Bath Comedy Festival, Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival, Southend Fringe and Guildford Fringe, the show was nominated for Best New Comedy at the 2017 Brighton Fringe. Later that year, she won the nationwide competition, So You Think You’re Funny? at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, becoming only the 4th woman to have done so in its' 30-year history.

The following year, her first full-length Edinburgh solo show, Vague, was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards. That same year she also won the Amused Moose National New Comic Award.

Maisie comes from an interesting family, her mother formerly worked in education and is the founder and executive director of the Louder Than Words Festival in Manchester. Whilst her grandfather was Lawrence Byford, who led an inquiry into the failings of the hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper, and her uncle, Mark Byford, was Deputy Director General of the BBC and head of BBC Journalism from 2004 to 2011.

A former Head Girl at high school, Maisie trained with the National Youth Theatre in 2010 and 2012 and then went on to study acting at the East 15 Acting School in Southend on Sea, where she graduated with a BA in Acting & Community Theatre in 2016.

Maisie has appeared on numerous panel shows including Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You, QI, Roast Battle, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Hypothetical, The Stand-Up Sketch Show, Would I Lie To You and Richard Osman’s House of Games. She also hosts the podcast 'That's A First' alongside fellow comedian Tom Lucy.

Maisie was diagnosed with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy at 14, she regularly talks about her experiences coming of age with epilepsy and sharing it as part of her comedy routines.
