'Little Misfit' Returns To The Live Stage With New Show
TV funny girl Zoe Lyons is returning to live stand-up when she takes to the road with a brand new comedy show under her belt. And the regular on television comedy series such as Live at the Apollo, The John Bishop Show, Alan Davies as Yet Untitled, and Mock the Week will also be helping the Lichfield Garrick theatre launch its regular comedy series when it returns this autumn.

Zoe, who recently won the Chortle Best Comic Award to add to her other achievements, will be headlining the Garrick's Comedy 42 programme of merriment and mirth on Friday 14 October. The Comedy 42 nights showcase some of the best comedians from across the country and around the world, and October's show is no exception with Zoe to be joined on stage by fellow comedians Meryl O'Rourke and Tamar Broadbent, while local funny man Chris Purchase again plays host.

Zoe, who hits the road with her brand new show, Little Misfit, took her first comedy steps in 2003 after initially training as an actress. She went on to win the Funny Women Awards in 2004 and followed that by being nominated for the best comedy newcomer award at her debut Edinburgh Fringe Festival appearance. Since then she has regularly toured the UK stand-up circuit.
