ZOE LYONS – ‘MANGLED MANTRA OF THE MESSED UP MODERN MIND’
Sunday 21st December, Purcell Room, 8.30pm, Tickets £10
‘Her routine was a fireproof parade of quick fire observational gags delivered with utter conviction….The audience didn’t really stand a chance’ Chortle
Must recycle more… but do I actually give a hoot about the environment? As of tomorrow I must drink less… but I don’t have a pension, so why should I bother? Why do I procrastinate? I don’t want to think about that now… Award winning Zoe Lyons, nominated for If.Comedy newcomer last year, talks about the little chants that daily ricochet around her head – firmly tickling your funny bone, whilst nudging your ribs with ‘universal’ truths about the arbitrary and warped tricks our brains play when we’re ‘thinking’.
This is a double bill with Keith Farnan who's stunning comedy show, argues with rare authority that America's Death Penalty is both 'Cruel and Unusual'. Keith's previous experience as a lawyer working to get people off death row makes for an informative and fascinating hour of dark humour.
