Zoe Lyons: Little Misfit is a diamond in the rough. Opening with an overture of big band influenced pop music and introducing herself as the ‘happy comedian’, Zoe Lyons starts a show that charmingly sets itself apart in the stand-up scene.
The show’s success is rooted in the comedian’s unique blend of observational humour and character comedy. As a self-identified lifelong misfit, Lyons creates a strong foundation for her delivery. Using a childlike curiosity to examine the current cultural climate and everyday circumstances, Lyons cleverly expands on ideas of belonging, identity, and rationality in a refreshing manner.
With critical yet positive thought, she brings out much needed laughter and uplifting light to our present day. Zoe Lyons: Little Misfit humorously brings the inner child to the neurotic adult world.
