Lucy Frederick – Even More Naked
Some years ago, the comedian appeared in a reality TV show in which she had to get naked. Like, completely naked. No socks or anything. And while that might sound alarming, she's since discovered that actually, there's a far more terrifying way to get your bits and bobs out for other people. And you don't even have to take your coat off.
This show is another eye wateringly honest confessional from Lucy about having courage and taking the plunge with life, friendships and love.
A show about negotiating the tricky world of emotional intimacy while wearing a giant suit of armour.
WHY? ‘A genuinely gifted performer, I am so happy l found this show…’ ★★★★ The Scotsman
‘Quite frankly, she’s pretty adorable’ ★★★★ TVBomb

The London based American actor and comedian has a cocktail-lounge-lizard image which belies an acerbic wit cut with fire-and-brimstone rants! Smart observations on contemporary life are set to superb comedic delivery alongside witty banter and salty sarcasm.
'A superior act. Politics to surrealism... an hour in his company an indulgent delight.' ★★★★★ Chortle

To prove his former classmates wrong, he hits the road for his third and largest UK tour to date with Almost, following three critically-acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Almost sees Steve trapped on a 13-hour flight when he receives a text that flips his entire world upside down, leading him to contemplate issues of great importance. Is finding “the one” possible? Can we trust the pharmaceutical industry? And why are Japanese toilets so much better than ours?
