Change is always hard and what better person to lead the men, selflessly by the hand into the new world than TV’s Jayde Adams.
Our host for the evening is a multi award winning comedian and actress. Jayde’s critically acclaimed special was released on Amazon Prime to worldwide applause, was longlisted for an Emmy and has amassed over 156 million views.
Jayde stars in Sophie Willan’s BAFTA winning TV series Alma’s Not Normal (BBC Two), the upcoming Take That movie Greatest Days and also stars in Neil Gaiman’s Good Omans (Amazon Prime). She is the co-host of the BAFTA nominated series Snackmasters and Netflix smash hit, Crazy Delicious.
She’s quickly become a must-see act on the UK comedy circuit, having starred on hit shows such as Live At The Apollo, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, The Last Leg, Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back and Mock The Week as well as fronting two travelogue series for Channel 4 – Trip Hazard and Mission: Accessible.
Rosie has completed two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe receiving critical acclaim, including the Scotsman describing her show as "both elegantly crafted and mischievous to its bones".
In the last 12 months Rosie signed a two-book deal with Hachette Children’s Group. The first book, The Amazing Edie Eckhart is written with humour and heart in diary form, which Jacqueline Wilson dubbed a “Brilliant book - fresh, funny and ultra cool”. Rosie is currently in the process of writing the second book in the series.
Morgan Rees is a rising star of the UK circuit. This softly spoken Welsh comedian boasts a densely packed arsenal of impressive one-liners and hilarious short stories. He has appeared on BBC Radio 4 in the prestigious finals of the BBC New Comedy Award. He was also a runner-up in So You Think You’re Funny 2017, and a finalist in Chortle Student Comedy Award.
He’s supported Fern Brady, Rhys James, Jayde Adams, Nigel Ng and Paul Chowdhry on tour.
