Lou Sanders is one of Britain’s fastest-rising and most original comedians. She is the champion of series eight of Taskmaster (DAVE) and other recent television appearances include The Late Late Show with James Corden (CBS), Live at the Apollo (BBC), QI (BBC2), Travel Man: 48 Hours in… (Channel 4), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Hypothetical (DAVE), Aisling Bea’s sitcom This Way Up (C4), Roast Battle (Comedy Central), The Russell Howard Hour (Sky 1), Jon Richardson’s Ultimate Worrier (DAVE) and Karl Pilkington’s sitcom Sick of It (Sky One).
Lou’s 2018 stand-up show Shame Pig received rave reviews, added extra shows at both the Edinburgh Fringe and sold out three separate runs at London’s Soho Theatre. The show subsequently toured and was named a top show to see by publications including The Guardian, The Scotsman, The List, The Mirror and The Evening Standard.
Lou returned to Edinburgh with Say Hello To Your New Step-Mummy which again was critically-acclaimed, completely sold out, and is now on Lou’s largest UK tour to date. She has also taken the show to LA and New York and will make her solo debut at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with it in 2020.
Her radio work includes regular appearances on Radio 4’s The Unbelievable Truth, and she also supported Katherine Ryan on her latest West End run and the recording of her Netflix special.
