TV panel show and Radio 4 regular who is maybe the most charming comedian in the country. She’s also a Celebrity Mastermind champion. Wow.
A brand new stand-up show from the perennial Fringe favourite who’s also a regular on TV and radio (QI, Mock the Week, The News Quiz). Lucy’s festival shows are always sell-out hits and 2016 promises to be no exception. This is a heartfelt and hilarious hour of personal revelation and political observation. Lucy will cover some or all of the following: censorship, generational conflict, theological ethics, home-brewing, quizzing, Britpop of the 1990s, falconry and Gary Wilmot. Book early!
