Miss Adventure is a comic character, TV & radio series, written & performed by Sadie Kaye. It began in 2012, when Lemmy was still rocking and New York indie Summerhill Television produced an improvised comedy pilot, Miss Adventure Meets Motorhead, featuring members of the band as they performed at Madison Square Garden. The episode, which also featured Dan Davies, broadcasted on Funny or Die, where it (briefly) became the ‘Highest Rated Video – All Time‘ in 2013. The episode remained amongst FoD’s Highest Rated Videos 2014-2016 and piloted on Comedy Central.
Since 2014, Sadie has performed as ‘Miss Adventure‘ in regular comedy broadcasts on RTHK, including cold calling Hong Kong businesses with bizarre requests, psychic shenanigans as Miss Adventure Friend to the Stars and interviews of a spoofed and occasionally genuine variety. She’s reported as ‘Miss Adventure’ from live events, including the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens. Since 2018 she’s been writing & performing (as Miss Adventure) in comedy sketch shows with Philippe Joly along various themes, including 50 Worst Dates & The Job Interview. She’s also writing & performing (as Mrs. Sharpe-Payne) in a sitcom, Meet The New Parents.
In 2017 she began producing & ‘co-presenting’ (as herself and Miss Adventure) a one-hour comedy podcast, Fake News. The mockumentary sees shambolic presenter Miss Adventure embark on an unlikely adventure in the USA with US President Donald Trump and the t*t he’s referred to as “Mr. Brexit”, Nigel Farage. The pod airs on ‘Brexit Day’. (Oct 31, 2019?)
A TV series of Miss Adventure travelogues are currently being produced by GMI, a film & TV company based in London. The theme song ‘Miss Adventure‘ was co-written by Sadie (lyrics) & Ryan Stanton (music) and distributed by 4Real Records. Composer Nick Samuel composed the music for Fake News.
Since the start of 2019, she’s written a monthly column as RTHK’s Miss Adventure for Hong Kong Buzz.
