In 2018 Maisie was nominated for the Best Newcomer award at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, for her debut show ‘Vague’.
Having only started on the circuit in 2016, her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country.
In 2017, Maisie entered the nationwide So You Think You’re Funny? competition (which has previously been won by many of her comedy heroes, including Peter Kay, Aisling Bea, Tom Allen, David O’Doherty and Lee Mack). Before she knew it, she found herself with a place in the Grand Final, held at the Gilded Balloon up at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and on 24th August she won the competition, becoming only the 4th woman to have done so in it’s 30 year history.
Maisie has since appeared on Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You, 8 Out of 10 Cats and The Stand Up Sketch Show for ITV2. Maisie has also written and starred in a Life Lessons for BBC3.
