Maisie Adam to make Have I Got News For You debut

Comic to compete against Rory Stewart

Maisie Adam is to make her debut on Have I Got News For You.

The 25-year-old comic – an Edinburgh Comedy Award best newcomer nominee last year – will appear on the November 22 episode of the long-running BBC One show.

Also appearing will be former Tory leadership hopeful Rory Stewart and guest host David Mitchell.

Adam – who has spoken about her epilepsy as part of her stand-up – has previously appeared on The Stand Up Sketch Show, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Mock the Week.

She follows Ivo Graham, who makes his debut on the show this week.

Made by Hat Trick Productions, the show airs at 9pm on Fridays

NICK HELM: ALL KILLER SOME FILLER

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
