Brighton Comedy Festival 2013: Northern Soul: Lucy Porter
Does geography shape our destiny? Born in Croydon to a Northern Irish dad and a Midlander mum (who met in Africa), Lucy never felt that she belonged down South. She tried moving to Manchester, marrying a Welshman and travelling the world, but she’s still - like the littlest hobo - seeking her spiritual home.
Lucy Porter -familiar from popular TV and Radio panel shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week and The Unbelievable Truth - returns to the UK tour circuit, fresh from The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with her best show yet.

This event takes place at Brighton Dome, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Diminutive stand-up comedian making a big name for herself. Within seconds of appearing on stage, her flirty, gossipy, effervescent style charms everybody! She has written for many top comedians, including Johnny Vaughan, Gail Porter and Griff Rhys Jones, and starred on many TV stand-up comedy shows.
She is also a quizzing demon having appeared on BBC 1’s Pointless (with partner Ed Byrne), ITV’s The Chase and breaking records on Celebrity Mastermind, where she fought off competition from Mark Watson and Dave Spikey to achieve the highest ever celebrity score.
Lucy also raised on £9000 for The Loss Foundation with her winning turn on Celebrity Storage Hunters. On Radio 4, she has been heard on Life - An Idiot's Guide, Heresy, The Personality Test, The News Quiz, Dilemma and The Unbelievable Truth.
'Fizzing with inventive one-liners... a treat from start to finish' (The Herald)
'Clever, chatty and charming' (Three Weeks)
'Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes of the everyday... genuinely delightful' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously cutting' (The Independent)
'She is like your witty friend who's always brilliant company down the pub. Many stand-ups would give their non-drinking arms to be able to transfer that kind of sparkling bar-room bonhomie to the stage and Porter does it effortlessly' (The Scotsman).
