Following her Best Newcomer-nominated debut, the winner of Amused Moose National New Comic 2018 and So You Think You’re Funny? 2017 returns with a show that asks why we are so obsessed with blame?

Following a year of television appearances including 8 out of 10 Cats and Mock the Week, Maisie embarks on her first tour of Europe and the UK.

When Maisie was in Year 9, she googled herself on the school computer. The top result was a news story, and Maisie discovered she was part of something much bigger… something known, to everyone but her. At that tender age, this story was enough to lead Maisie to ask the question: why are we so quick to point the finger of blame, without knowing all the facts?

Is Maisie a snowflake millennial shy of any responsibility, or is she holding a mirror up to our blame-hungry society? Before you decide, just HANG FIRE a second!

Maisie Adam first tried stand-up comedy in 2016, in her native North Yorkshire. Months later, she applied for the UK’s largest stand-up competition: So You Think You’re Funny? Maisie won, becoming only the fourth woman to have done so in 30 years. Maisie returned to the Edinburgh Fringe the following year with her debut show Vague, which sold out the Gilded Balloon every day, received rave reviews and earned her a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
