Maisie Adam: Hang Fire

Date:Fri 10 Jan
Time:8pm
Venue:J2
Price:£13.50

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 tenderage, 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’s second Edinburgh offering pivots on a jaw-dropping revelation that genuinely stuns the crowd. It’s a coup de theatre that flips the entire tone of the hour’
