Elf Lyons (Feminist Times’ One to Watch) sometimes wants to kill her mother. So she’s made a show about it. Do other people feel like this? A recent graduate from L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier, Elf explores the age-old fear of turning into your mother and what it means to have it all…

Elf Lyons is an award-winning, immortal, red-hatted comedian and storyteller from London. A regular performer and M.C on the UK comedy circuit, at the age of 25 Elf has already performed all around the world at leading arts festivals in the UK, Europe and Australia – sometimes with her clothes on, sometimes with her clothes off, sometimes dressed as an astronaut – touring with her five star solo show ‘Being Barbarella.’ Elf mixes her vulnerabilities, her niche geeky interests and her sassy nature to create fun, action packed quests for her and the audience, exploring modern political and feminist issues – often resulting in a huge fun mess on stage.

 

Named as “One To Watch” on the Media Eye and by The British Comedy Guide

One of Vogue UK’s Rising stars – “20 names of Now”, Dec 2016

Praise for Elf Lyons:

“Lyons is endearingly eccentric on so many levels. She has a knack for fostering the desire to be her new best friend.” FEST Magazine

“A stand-out Fringe show from a vibrant and energetic performer […] An hour packed full of sexiness, nerdiness and amusingly awful attempts at different accents […] with an excellent astronaut striptease” The Skinny
