Lucy Porter

Lucy is a huge hit with comedy audiences up and down the country with her distinctive, bouncy, feel-good comedy. She has travelled internationally with her stand-up – taking in the far East (including shows in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Macau and Manila), Switzerland and Paris. She was also invited to Miami to take part in NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’ and has performed in the States for NBC and HBO at their Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

Lucy is a regular face and voice on TV and radio panel shows. She has appeared on two series of ‘Mock the Week’, two series of ‘Argumental’ for the Dave Channel, ‘Have I got News for You’, ‘Clive Anderson’s Chat Room’, ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ and ‘What the Dickens?’ On Radio 4, she is team captain on the popular ‘Act Your Age’, where she gets to work alongside such showbiz luminaries as Roy Walker and Barry Cryer, she can also be heard on ‘The Personality Test’ and ‘The Unbelievable Truth’. You may also have seen her emerge victorious from a well-fought battle for the title of Celebrity Mastermind Champion in a special edition of the show for Children in Need. Lucy fended off stiff competition from Mark Watson and Dave Spikey and broke records by achieving the highest ever celebrity score. So she’s a smarty-pants aswell.

She remains amongst the most sought-after comedy writers in Britain and was one of the lead writers on ITV1’s prime-time Sunday night satirical animation series ‘Headcases’. She’s been responsible for turning Dames Helen Mirren and Judi Dench into mouthy Croydon girls, Robert Mugabe into a West Country farmer, and Angelina Jolie into an evil sweatshop gangmaster. This year Lucy has also moved into the world of film and she (along with Green Wing writers Fay Rusling and Oriane Messina) has a feature script (working title Queen of Comedy) on the development slate at leading Brit film company Warp X.
