Award-winning Jayde Adams will be returning to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 with her new show JAYDED. You can buy tickets here

Jayde's show 31 was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Comedy Awards. The show had a run at the Soho Theatre in late 2016 and early 2017.

Praise for 31:

'An unmissable Fringe Gem, uncut, sparkling and precious.' ✭✭✭✭✭ Scotsgay

'A flawless show from accomplished comedian Jayde Adams, 31 is a stunning blend of side-splitting comedy and heart-wrenching storytelling.' ✭✭✭✭✭ Broadway Baby

‘Adams has a highly original voice and is unafraid to mix lowbrow, explicit anecdotes with the emotionally intimate’ ✭✭✭✭✭ Three Weeks

‘There is a hell of a lot in this performance. Adams jokes that she’s an “octuple threat“, but it’s not that idle a boast. She has caught many of the audience unawares and the standing ovation she receives is very well earned.’ ✭✭✭✭✭ TV Bomb

Jayde won the Funny Women competition in 2014 along with the Audience Award at the London Cabaret Awards. Watch her award winning set here.

In 2016, Jayde wrote and starred in a Sky Halloween Comedy Short called BLOODY TRACY. 

She has featured in Russell Howard’s BBC Two Christmas special A GERT LUSH CHRISTMAS as well as SPENCER JONES' SKY CHRISMTAS SHORT (available on Sky on Demand), which won the 2016 Broadcast Digital Award for Best Scripted Online Short.

She recently played Celeste in Channel 5's BORDERLINE. She can soon be seen in Sky Atlantic's SICK NOTE. 

She has various scripted projects in development.

Jayde's show Jayde Adams' Kahuzzi had a run in Edinburgh in 2015.
