WORKS IN PROGRESS: JAYDE ADAMS & RICH WILSON
Part of our June series of Edinburgh Festival previews at the Attic ...
Jayde Adams: Work In Progress
Jayde Adams is "the future of British comedy" (Diva Magazine) "Britain's funniest woman comic" (The Daily Mail) and "A fearless force of nature" (The Independent). Jayde won the prestigious Funny Women award in 2014, a London Cabaret Award in 2013, was nominated in 2013 as The Hospital Club’s Top100 People in The Arts and in 2016 was nominated for the lastminute.com Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer Award for her sell out, multiple 5 star achieving, debut show, which also went on to sellout at the Soho Theatre.
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 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.
Rich Wilson: Work In Progress
As seen on BBC3 and Sky, Rich Wilson is the winner of the 2016 New Zealand Comedy Award 'Best International Guest.'
"I was a young working class Dad in London. Most 20 year olds spend their time making mistakes and figuring out who they are but I had to provide for a family as well. From caretaker in a gay sauna to driving the number 36 London Bus, I found myself in my 40s with absolutely no idea who I was because I was no longer responsible for anyone. I woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and didn't like the man I had transformed into. This is a funny tale about a working class man learning to adjust into the creature he has let himself become."
