Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, multi award-winning comic Jayde Adams brings her 5 star show to Soho Theatre.
In 2019 if you want to be a ‘successful independent woman person’ you better have something to say and you better be wearing a Serious Black Jumper™. “Britain’s funniest woman comic” (Daily Mail) has packed away the sequins (for now), because it’s time to get serious… “Still fabulous, but just being real” (List).
‘She delivers a show that unites the political with the personal in a way that many comics aim for, but few pull off with this sort of aplomb.’★★★★ Times
If pop stars, razors and even sausage rolls can attach themselves to important causes, why can’t Jayde Adams?
'Winning combination of common sense and raw heart… Ironically, by taking year off singing Adams has really found her voice.'
'An hour of outstanding stand-up, delivered effortlessly with power and purpose.'
'relevant but not preachy, so funny and...incredibly moving.'
'A rare voice who is able to convey vulnerability poignantly.'
'Still fabulous...Adams' wisdom has nothing to do with academia and everything to do with real life.'
