"A fantastic comedic success."
Edinburgh Festival Magazine
“Lyons has genuine funnybones – a surprisingly rare commodity even in comedy”
"A natural clown [...] so charismatic you can't take your eyes off her"
"This is comedy as enchantment, a show so beguiling that you don’t just love it, you somehow fall in love with it."
"Expert clowning that’s by turns charming, silly, touching and catastrophic"
“The most wonderful stand-up comedian I have seen this year.”
"If you prefer your comedy going to the edge then toppling right off that edge try Lyons."
