Maisie Adam is a young female comedian from Yorkshire. 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.
Maisie won the So You Think You’re Funny? Competition in 2017 (which has previously been won by many of her comedy heroes, including Peter Kay, Aisling Bea, Tom Allen, David O’Doherty and Lee Mack) becoming only the 4th woman to have done so in it’s 30 year history.
Maisie has since appeared on The Stephen K Amos Talk Show, SkyArts and BBC Radio 2. She has appeared alongside Josie Lawrence and Dan Antopolski as well as opening for Lloyd Griffith, Bec Hill and Gavin Webster.
“Adam exudes an appealing, quirky energy, and is clearly a natural wit” – Steve Bennett, Chortle.
“There’s something incredibly watchable about Adam – whether it’s her effervescence onstage, finding jokes in the minutiae of life or her fantastic physicality. Inevitably she’ll be compared to a young, female Peter Kay, except her jokes and performance are far more eccentric.” – The Skinny.Chloe Petts
Chloe Petts’ “inexhaustibly funny mind” (Diva Magazine) and “compelling presence” (Steve Bennett, Chortle) has established her as one of the most exciting new acts on the circuit.Chloe is an alumna of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, has been shortlisted for the BBC Comedy Award, was a finalist in the most recent Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Awards and came runner-up in the Funny Women Awards 2017.
