Bristol Ladyfest countdown: Elf Lyons

With less than a week to go until Bristol Ladyfest kicks off… read on to find out a little more about the five fantastic comedians performing at the What The Frock! comedy gig that wraps up the festival on Sunday night.

Compered by Rosie Wilby, your funny bones will be tickled by double act O’Shea & Ogilvie, as well as Bristol’s own Elf Lyons, and the inimitable Zahra Barri – who had the honour of opening the very first WTF! at the sold-out Arnolfini in May.

She may have only graduated from Bristol University this month, but don’t let Elf Lyons’ youth fool you. She’s been doing stand-up since she was 17, including taking her solo shows to Edinburgh for a few years, and running the Secret Comedians night in Bristol. Now that’s she’s free of her studies the comedy world is Elf’s oyster.

But be warned, Elf may choose to take to the stage in her birthday suit! She explains: “I performed stand-up naked once as a part of the eccentric show called The Naked Brunch at the Edinburgh festival in 2010. That was probably the oddest moment of my comedy career so far. Myself and several others had to perform our sets in the nude to a nude audience. I made a good friend from it, Alexus Dubus, so overall it was a worthwhile experience.”
