Maisie Adam: Buzzed

Maisie Adam is Buzzed about a lot of things, and it is a nice change of pace to hear how things are going well for a comedian.

Incredibly upbeat, energetic and witty

Incredibly upbeat, energetic and witty, we are taken through the ridiculousness of the surname ‘Dobbadam’, equality in women’s soccer, and trolling in a remarkably passionate show where Adam presents and talks about incredibly niche topics, managing to make everyone care about them as much as she does. She doesn’t dwell on the pandemic or negatives too much. In fact, this show is incredibly bright and cheery, much like Adam herself, who is the complete opposite of her perception of the British spirit.

Adam talks about important issues like misogynistic wedding traditions, the thoughtlessness of giving houseplants as gifts, and future Zoom etiquette; basically everything the typical millennial or Gen Z should care about. She is refreshingly confident with a high sense of self-worth (and actual worth) which she occasionally hides behind cavalier and self-deprecating comments.

Adam voices important ideas that, if everyone heard, society would be much better off. A comedienne (a word she hates with a passion) for all ages, Adam in Buzzed definitely gives us a much needed break and restart from the monotony of COVID conversations.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Fresh from Live at The Apollo, Mock The Week and The Last Leg, Best Newcomer nominee Maisie Adam is back at the Edinburgh Fringe with a brand-new show for 2022, Buzzed. Rammed with witty observations, high-octane energy and some right good jokes. This high-energy show promises to be better than whatever else you had planned (unless you had plans to go dancing with Cher).
