Maisie Adam to compere Bed Show dinner and awards

The National Bed Federation (NBF) has revealed that Yorkshire-born comedian Maisie Adam will host its Bed Show gala dinner and awards ceremony on 26th September.

Maisie will host the 13th gala dinner, welcome and entertain the c.500 guests, and present the 2023 Bed Industry Awards, sponsored by The Vita Group, on the first evening of the Bed Show at the Telford International Centre.

Despite only starting on the comedy circuit in 2016, Maisie’s anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise across the country.

After previewing her first stand-up show, Living on The Edge, at the Ilkley Fringe, she took the debut show on tour across the UK. With positive reviews from runs at Bath Comedy Festival, Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival, Southend Fringe and Guildford Fringe, the show was nominated for Best New Comedy at the 2017 Brighton Fringe. Later that year, Maisie won nationwide competition So You Think You’re Funny? at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Maisie has appeared on numerous TV panel shows, including Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You, QI, Roast Battle, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Would I Lie to You and Richard Osman’s House of Games. She also hosts the podcast That's a First, alongside fellow comedian Tom Lucy. Most recently, Maisie appeared at the Royal Variety Performance, and has just finished her Buzzed tour which took her all around the UK and finished at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in Australia.

Guests are invited to attend the drinks reception, sponsored by Hypnos, in the foyer from 7pm. An informal three-course sit-down dinner and coffee will follow, plus the results of the annual Bed Industry Awards.

Tickets will be available to book next week via the Bed Show website.
