Lucy Porter

Lucy PorterLucy has been a huge hit with comedy audiences up and down the country for over ten years with her distinctive, bouncy, feel-good comedy. She has continued to travel internationally with her stand-up – taking in the far East & including shows in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Macau, 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. She’s also regularly invited to festivals closer to home including Manchester, Glasgow and the prestigious Kilkenny festival, as well as other mud-soaked scrums such as Latitude.

Lucy is a regular face and voice on TV and radio panel shows and is a glutten for a good quiz show. You may have seen her alongside Ed Byrne providing pointless answer after pointless answer on a Celeb special of BBC 1’s Pointless, or seen her emerge victorious from a well-fought battle for the title of Celebrity Mastermind Champion in a Children In Need special.Lucy fended off stiff competition from Mark Watson and Dave Spikey and broke records by achieving the highest ever celebrity score.

She has also appeared on two series of Mock the Week, two series of Argumental, Have I Got News for You, Clive Anderson’s Chat Room, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and What the Dickens? On Radio 4, she has been heard on Life – An Idiot’s Guide, Heresy, The Personality Test and The Unbelievable Truth, and is a regular guest on BBC 6Music on The Radcliffe & Maconie Show.

Lucy also played the lead role in Guy Jenkin’s (Outnumbered and Drop the Dead Donkey) sitcom pilot Fried Brain Sandwich. She has starred in three 5 minute vignettes entitled LucyLoves You, a series of mini sitcom episodes about her bizarre home life. She has played Nurse Flinn in the critically acclaimed, box-office record breaking run of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest in Edinburgh and London’s West End, alongside Christian Slater. She also acted in BBC 2′s Broken News and in 2011 filmed a guest role in Outnumbered.

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.

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.

Lucy is also a popular voiceover artist and currently voices the weekly instalments on Access TV, which deliver a funny and concise round up of all things Playstation, with reviews and tips about recently released games and consoles.

Recently Lucy has contributed to various publications as a columnist, including City AM and Mother & Baby.
