Comedy in Spain (The Giggling Guiri Comedy Club) has been running English language comedy nights in Madrid and Barcelona since 2005 and attracts well known comedians from the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada and Australia. On Sunday 20th February, UK comic Zoe Lyons will be at the Teatro Anfil performing.
ZOE LYONS: Chortle.co.uk in an ill conceived analysis of its reviews of the Edinburgh Fringe drew the sweeping and ridiculous conclusion that men were funnier than women. Needless to say it caused an outcry especially at a time when female comedy has never enjoyed so much success. In the Uk a new generation has emerged and it has never been better, on TV with BBC comedy award winner Miranda Hart, Catherine Tate, Emma Fryer and rocking the live arena ladies like Sarah Millican, Janey Godley, Shappi Khorshandi and GG favourite, one Zoe Lyons. Zoe is one of the most confident performers you will see anywhere commanding the stage, a gifted storyteller and wonderful connection with the audience. If you want to experience this new wave of female comedy, come see one of the main protagonists this weekend. She is hilarious! BUY TICKETS NOW!!
