Beyond The Fringe...

Comedian Maisie Adam’s new show is ‘Buzzed’ and she’s bringing it to Stockton in September and Newcastle in October.

Before the pandemic, Maisie Adams was one of the hottest up and coming stand-ups around, but when Covid hit her profile seemed to get even bigger as she was invited on all sorts of shows including Mock The Week, QI, Have I Got News For You and The Last Leg. She’s also starred on Richard Osman’s House of Games and stole the show on the Christmas edition of Live at the Apollo. She has an eye for detail in her observations, whether chatting about playing football or going for smear tests, which have had people comparing her to Victoria Wood. ‘Buzzed’ is her first major solo tour and it’s said to be bereft of over-aching themes or poignant third acts. “I’ve realised what I love about this job is just making people laugh.” DP
