‘Properly funny’ ★★★★ The Times
‘Passionate, articulate, witty’ ★★★★ Evening Standard
Lucy Porter: Pass It On
A brand new stand-up show from the perennial fringe favourite. As seen on QI, Room 101, Live at the Apollo. As heard on Radio 4s News Quiz and The Now Show.
Always warm, witty and thought-provoking, this is Lucy’s best show yet. She muses on what we receive from our ancestors and what we pass on to future generations. Lucy’s inherited dodgy knees and global warming from her parents, but can she leave a better legacy for her children?
‘Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes … Genuinely delightful’ Telegraph
‘A treat from start to finish’ Herald
