8:45pm Maisie Adam

Remember live stand-up comedy?! That was fun wasn't it? People all gathered round in one room just to have a laugh? Then it became an absolute health hazard for a year so it had to be done on Zoom instead, which is a thing no one had ever heard of until it was basically forced upon us all...a bit like the census, or Bridgerton. 

Anyway now it's back! Not only is it now safe and legal (just how you like your comedy!) but comedian Maisie Adam has been cooking up new ideas, and is delighted to be back in Hastings for her 4th year at Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival!. As seen on Mock The Week, QI, Have I Got News For You, The Ranganation, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Roast Battle.
