Speaker

Lucy Porter

LPheadshot

Described as ‘charmingly effervescent’, Lucy Porter is a comedian whose bright and friendly persona can win over any audience. With a disarmingly warm and chatty style Lucy delivers her thoughts and observations on life, love and how odd the world can be like a long-standing and sometimes indiscreet friend.

Lucy has gathered a strong following and excellent reputation on the live circuit, and her Edinburgh shows are invariably a sell-out. Also at Edinburgh and away from comedy, Lucy starred alongside Christian Slater in the stage version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. A finalist on Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny?, Lucy is a regular on Radio 4 panel and comedy shows, and has also appeared a number of times on Have I Got News For You and Mock the Week. She has also appeared on Newsnight, The Culture Show, and Richard Osman’s House of Games, and has written for Johnny Vaughan, Adam and Joe, and Jimmy Tarbuck.

Lucy is a keen amateur quizzer, having won Celebrity Mastermind and The Chase. She has also appeared on Impossible, Fifteen to One, The Weakest Link and Pointless raising money for charities including Children in Need, the Loss Foundation and Carers UK. Lucy also presents the quizzing podcast Fingers on Buzzers alongside The Chase’s Jenny Ryan.
