ED FRINGE REVIEW Maisie Adam, Hang Fire

★ ★ ★ ★


A new hour which matches the sharp wit and observations of her debut.

Maisie Adam delivered one of the standout debuts of 2018 earning herself a Best Newcomer nomination and a number of television appearances including 8 Out of 10 Cats and Mock the Week. Returning to the Fringe with her follow-up, Maisie has produced a new hour which matches the sharp wit and observations of her debut.


Sometimes a comedian is born to be doing what they're doing, and with Maisie that's very much the case. Her natural, relatable and pin-sharp approach to her material is already, only a couple of years in to her career, really connecting with audiences.


Now performing in a deservedly larger room at the Gilded Balloon Teviot, Maisie begins her second hour with a few revelations - she's had a new haircut, she's not working-class (she's eaten a meringue) and she didn't play Mary in the school nativity. There are also tales of long-forgotten gym equipment, a hilarious one night stand and that time in the computer suite when she was in Year 8 which she'll never forget.
