Biography

According to Time Out, Lucy “is one of the most talented comics on the circuit.” Having had eleven Edinburgh Fringe shows and international tours, Lucy is a well-established and loved comedian.

On TV, has recorded a set for Live at the Apollo and has appeared on The Celebrity Chase, celeb special of BBC 1’s Pointless and Celebrity Mastermind. Her panel show credits include QI, Mock the Week, Insert Name Here, Have I Got News For You and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Lucy is also a successful comedy writer; she wrote The Fair Intellectual Club which was first performed at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe before being commissioned by BBC Radio 4 as a six-part drama series. She was also one of the lead writers on ITV 1's satirical animation series Headcases. In 2018 she developed her own podcast, Fingers on Buzzers, with The Chase's Jenny Ryan, based on her love of quiz.

Following the success of her 2017 solo show Choose Your Battles, in 2019 Lucy will tour with her latest show Pass It On.

Lucy is also a popular choice for corporate bookings and is well experienced in hosting large events.
