Lou was born in July in the 70’s (hard to believe isn’t it?) In her formative years she developed a love of curry, James Bond, Cinzano and Lenny Henry (I know..).
Having gone to stage school when she was 12 she developed her love of twatting about, and she was told that if she knuckled down she could make a brilliant serious dramatic actress.
Her first proper acting job was dressing up as a six foot orange teddy bear that lived with four other bears, very dramatic and very serious.
Lou started stand up comedy in 2006 and has gigged regularly ever since. She gigs up and down the country and is a regular MC for Comedy Central- Liverpool’s Baby Blue, Frog & Bucket – Manchester, Hilarity Bites, Buzz Comedy, amongst many others. Amongst her set 15/20’s, she has supported Sarah Millican, Puppetry of The Penis (supported, not got her wanger out) gigged for Buzz Comedy, Manfords Comedy Clubs, The Stands (Edinburgh/Glasgow), again amongst many others, has been delighting audiences with her naughty but nice delivery, her friendly presence and her instinctive wit, ever since.
Here’s a few nice things that people have said about her:
“Naturally Funny” Sarah Millican
“A great emcee, quick witted, and adept at handling large rooms” Gary Delaney
“Lou Conran is a very versatile MC and one of the warmest we use. She has the ability to judge a room and pitch her performance perfectly. Not only is she very funny, but she also sets the room up for the other acts. We love her. ” Lee Martin Gag Reflex
“Lou Conran, pretty much one of the most confident and playful comperes we’ve seen recently, commanding a packed and raucous sell-out night with ease.” Latest7 magazine
“Compere Lou Conran ““always fabulous, a compere who makes her job look so effortless that it’s a fair bet that her fellow comics want to do her serious harm.” Fringe Review
“Lou did a great job of hosting our gig in Darlington, really injecting energy into a fairly lethargic midweek crowd with her cheeky humour and impressive audience interaction. Really struck the right note, and I’ll certainly be offering her more MC work on the back of it.” Neil Jolly Hilarity Bites
“Fabulously naughty” UKTW
“Louise is a naturally funny comic, with a warm and dotty stage presence that helps endear her to an audience. If she can build on the great foundations she has laid, she’s sure to have a good future ahead of her. Witty, naughty but most of all good fun, with a touch of the Victoria Wood about her.” Toby Hadoke -XS Malarkey
“”¦with a cracking stage presence and good material”¦thoroughly engaging, you tell she has the talent.” -Frog & Bucket
