Judith Lucy: Nothing Fancy

Judith Lucy, an Australian household name thanks to two decades as a standup comedian, columnist, author and TV regular is back in London… with Nothing Fancy. No singing, no dancing, just gags about everything from meditation to beards.

Judith Lucy is one of Australia’s most popular comedians. A best-selling author, her work in radio, television and film and her sell-out national live tours have made her a household name. She sprang to national prominence in 1993 when she joined the cast of ABC TV’s The Late Show, which led to her fronting her own solo TV show Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey. Her live stage shows, filled with sharply observed and painfully funny, honest personal monologues, have a huge and devoted following, thanks to a string of lauded appearances at comedy festivals in Edinburgh, Australia and Montreal.
