The National Bed Federation (NBF) has announced Yorkshire-born comedian Maisie Adam as the host of its Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on 26 September.
Maisie will host the 13th Gala Dinner, welcome and entertain the 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 the 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.
She got married to her long-time boyfriend on 10th June in Brighton and the next day appeared in the World XI team at Soccer Aid for Unicef at Old Trafford.
Guests are invited to attend the drinks reception, sponsored by Hypnos, in the foyer from 7pm. Dinner and coffee will follow, plus the results of the annual Bed Industry Awards, sponsored by The Vita Group.
Tickets for the Gala Dinner and Awards will be available to book next week via the Bed Show website.
