From her award-nominated Edinburgh debut to sell-out tours and appearances on everything from Mock the Week to Just a Minute, This Week to Celebrity MasterChef, Zoe has become one of the country’s most popular live comedians with, as The Guardian has said, “what it takes to delight any crowd.”


Zoe Lyons natural energy and sharp observations have seen her sell out tours and appear on shows including Live at the Apollo, Celebrity MasterChef, The One Show, Pointless Celebrities, and This Week.

With anecdotes and reflections on the absurdities and frustrations of modern life, Zoe’s first Edinburgh show saw her nominated for the Comedy Award Best Newcomer. She’s a regular at the Fringe and has built up a reputation as one of the most reliable performers on the circuit who, The Guardian has said “has what it takes to delight any crowd.”

Zoe is an immediately recognisable voice on Radio 4, and a regular on The News Quiz, Just a Minute, The Unbelievable Truth, and The Now Show, plus her own four part series Passport Paddy. She has appeared on Absolute Radio on The Frank Skinner Show and The Jason Manford Show.

Zoe also hosts the podcast Let's Talk About The Husband, with comedian Stephen Bailey. Each episode reality TV fanatic Stephen tries to prove to Zoe that there are many life and societal lessons to be learnt from reality TV.

Along with her run in Celebrity MasterChef, Zoe has appeared on celebrity editions of almost every quiz show from University Challenge and Pointless to Mastermind. On Mastermind her specialist subjects were Quentin Crisp and Jacques Cousteau.
