Multi-award winning comedian, star of Strictly Come Dancing and ITV2’s brand new sitcom Ruby Speaking, Jayde Adams has announced new rescheduled dates as she tours the nation on her biggest tour yet with the brand new show ‘Men, I Can Save You’. The new dates see her perform across the UK from this month to 25th June including a show at London’s Hackney Empire on Saturday 20th May, while extra shows have been added at Bristol Old Vic on 2nd April and 25th June and many venues have increased their audience capacity to meet overwhelming demand for tickets. Tickets can be found at www.jaydeadams.com.
Change is always hard and what better person to lead the men, selflessly, by the hand into the new world than TV’s Jayde Adams. A champion of inclusive feminism, the established and esteemed Bristolian comic will showcase her intelligent working-class voice as she guides men to salvation the best way she knows how; with sharp humour and scintillating satire.
Jayde’s solo show, Serious Black Jumper, was immortalised in a celebrated Amazon prime stand-up special, filmed at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre. Release worldwide, it was longlisted for an Emmy, and went viral on TikTok with over 150 million views.
Her most recent show, ‘The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face’ received 13 five and four star reviews during its critically-acclaimed, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe before it went on tour across the UK with a nine night run at London’s Soho Theatre.
A well-known face on our screens, Jayde stars in the BAFTA and RTS Award winning Alma’s Not Normal (BBC Two), the new Take That movie Greatest Days, Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens (Amazon Prime), and The Outlaws (BBC One) while she has written and stars in ITV2’s brand new sitcom Ruby Speaking. Last year saw the release of ‘Jayde Adams; Coming Home’, a recently RTS award nominated documentary for BBC One that explores her personal and emotional ties to her hometown of Bristol for documentary series We Are England. Jayde previously wrote and starred in the BBC Radio 4 stand-up special ‘Hometown Glory’.
As a presenter Jayde is the host of Channel 4’s high-concept food show Crazy Delicious (Netflix), co-host of the BAFTA nominated series Snackmasters (Channel 4). She has featured as a guest on Later Live with Jools Holland (BBC Two), Richard Osman’s House of Games (BBC One), Celebability (ITV 2), Pointless (BBC One), The Weakest Link (BBC One), The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV 1), Dating No Filter (Sky One), Roast Battle, Live At The Comedy Store, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4) and Comic Relief’s Comic Opera (BBC One). 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
CRITICAL PRAISE FOR THE BALLAD OF KYLIE JENNER’S OLD FACE
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”
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!”
Feminist Fringe Reviews, Joanne Kilday ★★★★ “funny and honest”
Joe.co.uk, Nooruddean Chourdry “Adams is a riot, littering the show with gags that range from piercingly acute to gloriously crude… Wickedly funny”
