Featuring

Lucy Porter

Lucy Porter appearing at this event

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).
