Reliably informed

One of the increasing number of funny ladies to be gaining a reputation both on the circuit and on TV, Zoe Lyons has, according to Chortle, “put together a joyous show of sparkling stand-up.” With mustard jar in one hand and meat cleaver in the other (figuratively speaking, she isn’t a nutter) she is not only cutting the mustard, but butchering it in a quite unholy manner.

Not afraid to cover any topic from politics to cheap mattresses, Zoe has built a reputation for being warm, energetic and most importantly, funny. She mixes stories with one-liners, put-downs with observations and all with a (cliché alert) sideways look at the world. A regular on TV shows such as Mock the Week and The Wright Stuff, and even brainy enough to be appearing on Mastermind, Zoe is building on the critical success she achieved at the 2014 Edinburgh festival where she won the Dave funniest joke award. This gig is definitely worth a punt.

Zoe Lyons comes to The Stand, Newcastle on Monday 1st June.
