She came. She saw. She quit.
Miss Adventure was born in 2012, when Lemmy was still rocking and New York indie Summerhill Television produced an improvised skit, Miss Adventure Meets Motorhead, featuring members of the band as they performed live at Madison Square Garden. The episode broadcasted on Funny or Die, where it (briefly) became the ‘Highest Rated Video – All Time‘ in 2014. It remained among FoD’s Highest Rated Videos until 2016 and piloted on Comedy Central.
Since 2014, Sadie has performed as ‘Miss Adventure‘ in regular comedy broadcasts on RTHK Radio 3. These slots have included cold calling Hong Kong businesses with unusual 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.
She’s currently writing & performing a humorous audio column, Sharp Pains, as ‘Miss Adventure‘ for the 123 Show. The monthly column launched with ‘Ghost’ on RTHK Radio 3 September 29, 2020. It continues the last Tuesday of every month and is also published as a goofy column in the South China Morning Post.
Since 2019 she’s been writing & performing (as Miss Adventure) in comedy sketches with Philippe Joly along the themes of 50 Worst Dates & The Job Interview. She’s also writing and acting (as Mrs. Sharpe-Payne) in a radio play series and TV sitcom, Meet the New Parents. A TV series of Miss Adventure travelogues are being produced by UK indie GMI.
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.
Since Nov 2018, she’s written a monthly column as RTHK’s Miss Adventure: ‘Friend’ to the Stars for Hong Kong Buzz.
