In 2019 if you want to be a 'successful independent woman person' you better have something to say and you better be wearing a Serious Black Jumper™. 'Britain's funniest woman comic' (Daily Mail) has put the sequins in a box (for now), because it's time to get serious. If pop stars, razors and even sausage rolls can attach themselves to important movements, why can't Jayde Adams? 'She's a star' (Guardian).

Seriously the best stand up comedian I have ever seen. Jaydes' show this year is incredibly funny I was in stitches for most of the show, and crying with laughter. If you are thinking about going to see Jayde buy a ticked you will not be disappointed this is the third time I've seen her and it won't be the last.

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 112 days ago

Having broken through with the big, all-singing and dancing, glittery spectacles that established her reputation, Jayde Adams was nevertheless dismayed to hear her (former) agent suggest that the comedy industry didn’t take her seriously as a stand-up. ...

The Feminist Fringe (4/5 stars) 115 days ago

What I particularly enjoyed about the show was that everything Jayde was saying made sense and was relatable. Jayde Adams brings us a funny and honest look at how celebrities align themselves to causes and products and how this affects us – particularly young people – in society.

The Guardian (3/5 stars) 115 days ago

After several shows in which showbiz and song featured as prominently as standup, Jayde Adams doesn’t think she’s being taken seriously enough as a comedian. This year’s offering sets out to fix that. Having not read a book in seven years, Adams has been boning up on feminism. The glam...

I really enjoyed this show. Lots of laughs, some interesting points and some very funny stories. Now I just have to remove all that information about the Jenner/Kardashian family from my brain and I’ll be happy. I highly recommend this great new direction from an established comic.

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (5/5 stars) 122 days ago

Wow. You have to see Jayde Adams' show. You have to be there when all the sequins and the fluff fall away to reveal a phenomenal stand up, and probably one of the most important comedy voices of her time. And...

The Times [paywall] (4/5 stars) 122 days ago

Feminism? At the Edinburgh Fringe? Who would have thought it? At the start of this well-aimed, liberating, career-transforming show, Jayde Adams gets a joke out of nodding to the idea that she is tackling the most popular topic in town. She gets a joke out of most things, though, even...

The Telegraph (4/5 stars) 123 days ago

The points she’s making aren’t subtle, but one can’t help rooting for her (the show I saw was met with a full standing ovation). Ironically, by taking year off singing Adams has really found her voice.

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 131 days ago

Jayde Adams has gone the full Edinburgh. Her serious black polo-neck tells you that. The fact there’s someone hawking serious black polo-necks outside the gig shows there’s a campaign strategy behind it too. Gone is most of the larking about, gone is the showstopping singing, and in its place is...

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 132 days ago

Jayde Adams is back and this time it’s serious. Jayde, Fringe veteran and much accomplished comedian-come-opera-singer, has decided to throw off the shackles of her musical past, stop hiding behind her (incredible) voice and bring us a show that is relevant but not preachy, so funny and, as always with...

Forget the street team outside the Pleasance loudly hawking this show as being all about the Kardashians, especially if you have no interest in this weirdly ubiquitous family. ...
