If Comedy Nominee 2007
Mock The Week regular
Bursting onto the comedy circuit in 2004, Zoe won the prestigious Funny Women competition and reached the final of Channel 4’s ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ in the same year, and has since established herself as one of the country’s leading comic talents.
Last year, she was nominated for the If.Comeddie Best Newcomer award for her debut solo show ‘Fight or Flight’, and is in constant demand on the UK and international comedy scene. Zoe also runs her own night ‘Bent Double’ in Brighton, voted number 1 Critic’s Choice by The Times, and a regular night in London at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern which she comperes and produces.
A regular contributor to various radio shows on Radio 4 and LBC, Zoe was also invited to become a patron of Pride in 2007, joining a select elite including Stephen Fry and Sir Ian Mc Kellen. Following the critical sell-out success of her show in 2007, Zoe returned to Edinburgh this year with her all-new show ‘The Mangled Mantra of The Messed Up Modern Mind’.
