Adele Cliff

Bringing her “nifty writing” along with her “smarts” along to the night, will be one-liner wonder Adele Cliff!

“It’s rare to see a female comedian who specialises in one liners and Adele does this with great accomplishment. The skill of joke writing coupled with her likeable stage persona, mean that Adele is a very promising comic talent. Her material is consistently intelligent, witty and, most importantly, very funny.” – Lynne Parker, Founder, Funny Women

“I find her really annoying to watch, as I’m constantly kicking myself for not having thought of those gags first.” – Gary Delaney

“Inventive lines in a gag-driven set” - Chortle
