In successive years, Elf Lyons has built up a worthy reputation for producing superbly inventive, often absurdist and exuberant shows that combine her unique set of skills in clowning, stand-up, and theatre. Swan (2017), ChiffChaff (2018), Medusa (2018) and Love Songs to Guinea Pigs (2019) have all enjoyed sold audiences both in and beyond the UK. A contributing writer on many newspapers and publications, Elf has appeared on BBC Radio 4, 6 and Worldwide, guested on The Dog Ate My Homework (BBC Two), graced the covers of The Observer and The Sunday Times Culture Magazine, and been featured in VOGUE as one of the ‘Top Names of Now’. Her multiple award nominations include Best Show and the Malcolm Hardee award for Comic Originality at the Edinburgh Fringe, and Fringe World Perth’s Best Comedy Show. Elf debuted her immersive horror play GORGON at the 2020 Vault Festival
