Edinburgh Preview: Richard Todd & Zoe Lyons
As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), Mock The Week (BBC2), Room 101 ( BBC1) and regularly heard on Radio 4’s News Quiz, Just a Minute, The Now Show and plenty more. This hugely popular comic returns to the Fringe with a fresh crop of quick-fire observational gags, delivered with utter conviction not to mention ‘proper laugh-out-loud one-liners’ (The Herald).
‘Lyons is on top of her game in command of her material, her audience and her stage’ ★★★★ Chortle
‘An hour of intelligent observations and hilarious character comedy’ ★★★★ ThreeWeeks
Chortle One to Watch 2018 and as seen on Comedy Central Online.
An artist draws the same image repeatedly with indomitable zeal. A convenience shopkeeper eschews convenience to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams. Chortle One-to-Watch 2018, Richard Todd returns to Edinburgh with a new show. Fools? Maybe! Obsessed? Certainly! Pension Plans? Probably not. Let’s meet them!
In celebration of the human spirit, Richard Todd (‘Painfully funny’ ★★★★ The Scotsman) prods hope’s perpetually moribund body with the indubitable stick of logic and asks: ‘Why won’t it die?’
