Zoe Lyons – Clownbusting (Mick Perrin for Just For Laughs Live)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Zoe Lyons is about to turn 40, is back for a ninth year at the Fringe, and despairs that she lives in a world where people listen to advice given by Justin Bieber. Describing herself as an under-achiever that has never realised her full potential, she reveals that all she wants to do is curl up in her Snuggie and watch ‘Come Dine With Me’. In her latest show, Lyons shares stories which range from meeting a Kate Bush fanclub at the top of a hill, to accidentally smuggling drugs (and a trouser press) over from Amsterdam. It’s a hilarious show, full of spot-on observations, so bring your Snuggie and settle down for a ponder on the more absurd side of modern life.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 28 Aug, 7.30pm (8.30pm), £9.00 – £12.00, fpp167.
