“The future of British comedy” Diva Magazine

After appearances in 8 out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, BBC2’s Gert Lush Christmas with Russell Howard, Sky1’s Sick Note with Nick Frost and Rupert Grint, and Netflix Channel 5’s Borderline, it’s safe to say that when Dawn French says “Jayde Adams is the 3rd funniest woman in the world. Fact,” she might just be onto something.

Jayde’s debut year was 2016 where she wrote and performed her first hour at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and after storming year collecting 6, 5 star reviews and 3, 4 star reviews she was then nominated as Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards and at the Chortle Awards, Jayde then performed ’31’  at the West End’s prestigious Soho Theatre, London for 15 dates and it completely sold out! Also in 2017 she was invited to perform at Latitude Festival. 

In 2016, Jayde wrote and starred in Bloody Tracy, for Sky Halloween comedy shorts and can soon be seen in Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit on Dave. She has also featured in Spencer Jones’ Christmas Short for Sky Arts(which won the 2016 Broadcast Digital Award for Best Scripted Online Short)  as well as Joe Wilkinson and David Earl’s Sky short Giddy Up Gunty.  Jayde has also written and starred in her own BBC 3 short “Affordable Meats’ produced by Me & You Productions (Emmy award winning producers of Hoff The Record.)

Jayde’s talent also encompasses being an extremely in-demand and exciting writer performer. She currently has several scripted projects in development with Miranda Hart and David Walliams’ production company King Bert, Lucy Lumsden, Hat Trick, Me & You Productions and she is currently working on turning Jayde 31 into sitcom for a well known comedy channel.

Jayde also performed her 2nd hour ‘Jayded’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 to rave reviews where she also picked up 2 more awards and one more nomination for comedy.

With all of this happening to Jayde, it’s hard to believe that she started out life as a fish monger in Asda who had no idea she was any good at anything.
