There’s little doubt that Adams is anything but stardom bound Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

Building on the momentum midway through a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, multi-award-winning stand-up Jayde Adams is set to record the celebrated show ‘The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face’ for her first filmed, hour long, special for Amazon Prime which will be captured in two performances in front of her biggest audience to date at the newly renovated Bloomsbury Theatre in London on Saturday 21st September at 6pm & 9pm, marking her debut televised special. Tickets are on sale can be found at thebloomsbury.com.

The Bristolian has gotten rid of the show stopping music numbers and glitzy costumes to reinvent herself as a ‘Successful Independent Woman’, delivering brand new, razor sharp stand up about what it means to be a feminist in 2019. Woman of the people and “Britain’s Funniest Woman comic” (said the Daily Mail) invites you to ignore all the self-promotion to discover what it takes to be a real role model, whilst wearing the feminist wardrobe staple attire; the Serious Black Jumper™, (a favourite choice amongst many celebrities who want to reinvent themselves.)

Jayde’s “rafter-rattling” (Alice Jones, The I) performances earned her a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 2016 Edinburgh Comedy Awards, followed by a spot on the BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017. 2019 saw Jayde host a wildly successful podcast with Scott Mills with the BBC in the lead up to Eurovision 2019, hosting BBC4’s Eurovision Semi Finals from Tel Aviv, as well as bringing her cult live musical comedy show, Amusical to the screen for the very first time for Comedy Central on 26th August. Amusical will also return to the Pleasance Grand for one night only on 21st August.

A regular on our screens, Jayde recently featured as a guest on Roast Battle, Live At The Comedy Store, The Chris Ramsay Show (Comedy Central), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), 8 Out of 10 Cats (E4), Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit (Dave), Good Omens (Amazon Prime), and Russell Brand’s Stand Off for Comic Relief (BBC). Jayde wrote and starred in her own Sky Halloween Comedy Short Bloody Tracy with Guilty Party Pictures, as well as creating and starring in her own BBC Three short Affordable Meats, produced by Me & You Productions (Emmy-award winning producers of Hoff The Record).

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR THE BALLAD OF KYLIE JENNER’S OLD FACE

Powerful yet funny… a heady cocktail of jokes, purpose and passion ★★★★ Steve Bennett, Chortle

So funny… and incredibly moving ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

While this might be a more serious show from Adams, it lacks none of her humour or forceful nature which she is known and loved for Punchline Comedy
