Zoe Lyons: Entry Level Human

Comedy (Stand Up)

Guided Balloon (Teviot)

17.45 until 26th August

**** (Four Stars)

As a regular touring the stand-up circuit, and frequenting the Edinburgh Fringe, Zoe Lyons need no introduction, made obvious by her sold out show, she’s appeared in, As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Room 101 (BBC One) and regularly heard on BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz, Just a Minute, The Now Show, to name a few.

Zoe has a fast pace energetic style with a great friendly personality and is known for her razor-sharp wit. She flows through the topics perfectly without any boring or dull moments, bringing you back to various sections of the hour, without repeating but that will have you laughing all over again and you still will be long after you leave.

From travelling, hotels, Brexit and other current news topics, internet connectivity problems and intruder flies, Zoe glides through her routine effortlessly, not to mention the various impressions and practically flawless Glaswegian accent, with every topic relatable.

Entry level human is a show mostly complaining about the annoyances of other people (including herself) and something we can all relate to and of course the message is clear, to think about our actions and have consideration and manners in the world we share.

We have all encountered “Entry Level Humans” and we are also one of them at some or several points in our lives.

Entertaining, hilarious, witty and charming, for a laugh a minute hour, Zoe is impressively funny and one of a kind, she’s not to be missed, the Fringe crowd adore her and you will too.
