TWO top class comedians are bound for Theatre by the Lake.

Both fresh from successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, Lucy Porter brings her Northern Soul show to the Keswick theatre on Tuesday, February 11, and Sean Hughes pays a visit on Thursday, February 13, with his award-winning Penguins.

Actress, comedian and writer Lucy is a familiar face on Mock the Week and Never Mind the Buzzcocks and has appeared on Radio 4 panel show The Unbelievable Truth. As a live performer she’s at the top of her game, with more than 20 Edinburgh Fringes under her belt.

Lucy’s new show Northern Soul is jam-packed with characteristically cheery anecdotes and banter.

Stand up legend Sean has performed all over the world as a comic, and has acted in Coronation Street, Alan Parker’s film The Commitments and a West End As You Like It with Sienna Miller.

Twenty four years after he was the youngest ever winner of the Perrier Comedy Award, seasoned Sean’s reflections on life and love are as romantically tragic and deeply comic as ever.
