Award-winning comedian and proud Bristolian Jayde Adams is an uncut gem; a force of nature; dangerous and unafraid; the future.. 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 Edinburgh Fringe hour Jayde 31 was nominated for Best Newcomer in 2016, whilst her hugely successful, critically acclaimed 5 star Edinburgh Fringe show ‘The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face’ was filmed and released worldwide on Amazon Prime and was renamed, Serious Black Jumper.

A regular on our screens, Jayde is the host of Channel 4’s high-concept food show Crazy Delicious, and the co-host of the channel’s culinary entertainment series Snackmasters, while she brought her cult live musical comedy show Amusical to the screen for the very first time for Comedy Central.
