Lucy is back on the road, touring PEOPLE PERSON, the show she debuted at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe around the UK in the first half of 2012.
‘People Person' is a guide to the human condition that draws on Lucy's academic background as a student of social anthropology, and her social background as a party animal.
As a comic on the international circuit, Lucy has met thousands of people. Now that she’s no longer such a road-dog, Lucy has discovered that there are equally fascinating folk closer to home. This show combines extraordinary stories in exotic locations with similarly startling tales from the more mundane domestic sphere. You’ll hear how Pamela Anderson tried to get Lucy killed in Vegas, and how a more recent criminal plot unfolded in a Camden Town hairdresser’s.
Underpinning Lucy’s personal experiences will be some of the most fascinating data from the world of Social Anthropology. Lucy studied the subject at University, and this show establishes her as the Desmond Morris of the comedy circuit. She’ll tell you what George Osbourne could learn from the Amazonian Nukaks, introduce you to the Rolling Stones of the South Pacific and present My Big Fat, Mbuti Pygmy Wedding.
Key questions explored during the hour will include: Are human beings inherently good or bad? Is it better to be lonely or surrounded by twats? Is Gloria Hunniford the principal cause of post-natal depression?
