This event has been and gone.
Zoe Lyons, a seasoned stand up with properly funny bones, returns to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival after a year’s hiatus to the Gilded Balloon Dining Room with her new show ‘Little Misfit’.
This past year has seen her appear on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), The John Bishop show (BBC1) and win the Chortle Best Comic Award. Not bad for a girl who has never really felt part of the gang. She was the awkward gay kid at school with a different accent and quite a severe bout of alopecia.
Never easy for a girl to fit in if she is sporting a massive comb over while harbouring secret desires for Charlie’s Angels (the blond one mostly, but with a comb over, who can afford to be fussy?).
Thankfully Zoe has reached that point in her life when the thought of actually fitting in would be utterly terrifying. She doesn’t want to be in anybody’s gang, she is now far happier being a Little Misfit.
A comedy award nominee and a sharp and funny comedy performer who has appeared on Mock The Week. Very highly rated by fellow comedians, and regularly bringing down the Screamers Comedy Club roof. Zoe takes a sideways view of life, picking out the many absurdities and turning them into hilarious routines which she delivers with tremendous energy. She performs her diverse material with utter conviction leaving everyone wanting for more. She won the Funny Women Competition in 2004 and the Dave, Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award in 2008. 'Achingly funny... A cracking show' (The Melbourne Age) 'Probably the most impressive British female comic on the circuit' (The Skinny) 'Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd' (The Guardian) 'Hugely confident, passionate, energetic... she gets better and better... Excellent' (The Daily Mirror) 'Throughout her show she unleashes non-stop rapid fire bolts of vinegar wit... I defy anyone not to fold up with laughter at her show' (Edinburgh Evening News) Zoe Lyons was named in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians list of 2018 and 2016.
