She’s a star Brian Logan, The Guardian

She is a born performer – at ease with the audience, a naturally comical storyteller Alice Jones, The I

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

Multi-award winning comedian Jayde Adams embarks on a rescheduled nationwide tour with the celebrated show ‘The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face’, from 3rd October to 27th November following of a sold-out, critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe which saw her 4th solo show receive 13 five and four star reviews. Tickets can be found at ILoveJaydeAdams.com.

Building on the momentum of the hit show, Jayde recorded her first special for Amazon Prime under the title ‘Serious Black Jumper’ which was captured in two performances at the newly renovated Bloomsbury Theatre in London. The show was met with further critical acclaim and enjoyed viral success on TikTok where a section of the show reached 19 Million views.

The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face sees the Bristolian stand-up take a completely new direction,  she’s packed away the sequins and glamour (for now) and has gotten rid of the show stopping music numbers and glitzy costumes to reinvent herself as a ‘Successful Independent Woman Person’, exploring what it means to be a feminist this decade, and to showcase herself as an intelligent working class voice. Woman of the people and “Britain’s Funniest Woman comic” (Daily Mail) invites you to discover what it takes to be a real role model, whilst wearing the feminist wardrobe staple attire; the Serious Black Jumper™.

This year has seen Jayde star in BBC Two’s BAFTA winning comedy Alma’s Not Normal, while she is the host of Channel 4 and Netflix’s high concept food show Crazy Delicious, co-host of Channel 4’s culinary entertainment series Snackmasters, the wildly successful podcast with Scott Mills and the BBC in the lead up to Eurovision 2019, BBC4’s Eurovision Semi Finals from Tel Aviv. Jayde has also brought her cult live musical comedy show, Amusical to the screen for the very first time for Comedy Central, and has featured on Strictly It Takes Two (BBC Two). 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.

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.


The Metro, Sharon Lougher – ★★★★★ “This is thoughtful, well-crafted stuff, brimming with funny gags and slide projections and a geneil accessibility to lighten the moments of passionate invective. It’s a must-see for teenage girls but take them quick”

The Telegraph, Tristram Fane Saunders – ★★★★ “winning combination of common sense and raw heart… Ironically, by taking year off singing Adams has really found her voice”

The Times, Dominic Maxwell – ★★★★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.” AND “warm and wonderful hour”

The Scotsman, Jay Richardson ★★★★ “Without all her usual razzle dazzle crutches, Adams seriously impresses with this tongue-in-cheek lecture, confirming that the seasoned stand-up’s gift of deeper analysis and capacity to project beyond herself were inside her all along”

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine, Kate Copstick – ★★★★★ “a phenomenal stand up, and probably one of the most important comedy voices of her time”

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

Beyond The Joke, Bruce Dessau – ★★★★ It’s time to take Jayde Adams seriously. But that doesn’t mean you aren’t permitted to laugh. In fact you probably won’t be able to stop yourself from laughing.

The List, Claire Sawyers – ★★★★ Still fabulous, but just being real

I Talk Telly, Elliot Gonzalez – ★★★★★ “There are few performers at the Fringe able to deliver an hour of pure entertainment better than Jayde Adams”

Broadway Baby – ★★★★★  “So funny… and incredibly moving”

Funny Women, Kate Stone★★★★ “She is a rare voice who is able to convey vulnerability poignantly. Adams always comes to the Fringe with a point to prove, and this year she definitely proved it!”

RGM – ★★★★”hilarious stories

Feminist Fringe Reviews, Joanne Kilday ★★★★ “funny and honest”

Joe.co.uk, Nooruddean ChourdryAdams is a riot, littering the show with gags that range from piercingly acute to gloriously crude… Wickedly funny

The Wee Review, Kevin Wight – “always to be admired”

Punchline Comedy – 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
