Lucy’s new show, “Choose Your Battles” will run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. Back at the Pleasance, the show’s on at 5.30pm between the 2nd & 27th August (not 16th).

Here’s the blurb from the Fringe guide;

A brand-new, brilliant hour of stand-up from this perennial Fringe favourite. In these combative times, it’s easy to be irritated, offended or downright enraged by other people. How do we know which causes are worth fighting for? Lucy uses her hilarious experiences to help you decide.

Recent TV and radio appearances include: QI, Insert Name Here, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, Room 101, News Quiz, The Now Show.

2015 Tours! “Me Time” & “The Fair Intellectual Club” Touring the UK…

After a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Lucy is taking her new show, “Me Time” out around the UK. Click HERE for booking info & to see if she’s coming to a town near you!

Lucy’s back with her 10th solo show! Finding modern life a bit difficult? Maybe you were born in the wrong era.

In this show Lucy tries to find her rightful place in history.
She ponders whether she’d rather be a be-whiskered Victorian explorer, a 1920s Hollywood starlet or Hatshepsut the Egyptian pharaoh.

Deliciously cutting‘ (Independent).
A witty, thoughtful show delivered with winning ease and bucket-loads of charm‘ (List).
Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes…genuinely delightful‘ ( Telegraph).

Lucy’s play, “The Fair Intellectual Club” will also be on a limited tour in early 2015.
Debuting at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe, the Fair Intellectual Club is a tale of teenage love, friendship and betrayal set at the dawn of the Scottish Enlightenment.
Based on the true story of three Edinburgh girls who formed The Fair Intellectual Club in 1717.
They recruited other young ladies aged 15-19 with a view to discovering ‘what we might attain unto if we were as industrious to cultivate our minds as we are to adorn our bodies’. Members studied literature, science and philosophy.
They were sworn to absolute secrecy, but betrayed by an enemy within who exposed her sisters to scandal.

You can book tickets and read more at The Fair Intellectual Club website.

The Fair Intellectual Club – Edinburgh Fringe 2014

NORTHERN SOUL TOUR 2013-2014

Lucy Porter, familiar from popular TV and Radio panel shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week and The Unbelievable Truth, returns to the UK tour circuit, fresh from The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with her best show yet.

Does geography shape our destiny?
Born in Croydon to a Northern Irish dad and a Midlander mum (who met in Africa), Lucy never felt that she belonged down South.

She tried moving to Manchester, marrying a Welshman and travelling the world, but she’s still – like the littlest hobo – seeking her spiritual home.

NORTHERN SOUL is touring for the rest of 2013 & into 2014 – click here for more info!
