She has travelled internationally with her stand-up, taking in the far East (including Hong Kong, Bangkok, Macau and Manila), Switzerland and Paris. She was also invited to Miami to take part in NBC's 'Last Comic Standing' and has performed in the States for NBC and HBO at their Las Vegas Comedy Festival. She's regularly invited to comedy festivals closer to home including Manchester, Glasgow, the prestigious Kilkenny festival and Latitude.

Lucy has also turned her hand to acting, playing the leading role in Guy Jenkin's new sitcom 'Fried Brain Sandwich'. She has starred in three 5 minute vignettes entitled Lucy Loves You - a series of mini sitcom episodes about her bizarre home life. The show features puppets, live bands, and Lucy having intimate relations with a bear and is available to watch on YouTube.

A highly sought-after comedy writers in Britain, Lucy was one of the lead writers on ITV1's prime-time Sunday night satirical animation series 'Headcases', responsible for turning Dames Helen Mirren and Judi Dench into mouthy Croydon girls, Robert Mugabe into a West Country farmer, and Angelina Jolie into an evil sweatshop gangmaster.

"She was lovely - really bright and bubbly and very positive about the event. Her very quick humour came over throughout her delivery and she stayed smiling until the very end. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her." Birmingham City Council - 2012
