Following her sold out run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2017’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show Nominee Elf Lyons hits the road with her new show, a surreal tale of love and loneliness.

In August 2018 Elf was planning a physical clown show with dance, tap, rock n roll and the splits. However, a couple of months later, disaster struck; Elf was taken to the hospital and told it was best that she never performs again. After months lying on her back and in and out of MRI machines, Elf had to rethink what she was going to do and how she was going to perform again.

Join Elf as she embodies her inner Katherine Hepburn on an absurd narrative of heartbreak and love with live music, terrible mime, silly characters, enthusiastic accents and entirely true stories.

Love Songs to Guinea Pigs is the perfect show to take a Tinder date to, a friend who is going through a difficult divorce, your step-mum as an attempt to ‘bond’ or indeed just come on your own and be a legend.

"This is comedy as enchantment, a show so beguiling that you don’t just love it, you somehow fall in love with it" The Scotsman

"Expert clowning that’s by turns charming, silly, touching and catastrophic" The Times

"If you prefer your comedy going to the edge then toppling right off that edge try Lyons" Evening Standard

“Lyons has genuine funnybones – a surprisingly rare commodity even in comedy” Chortle

"A fantastic comedic success" Edinburgh Festival Magazine

"A fast talking, smart-thinking standup for whom the adjective "kooky" could have been invented for" The Guardian

As seen and heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 1, Dave and BBC Three.

Presented by Mick Perrin Worldwide in association with Blue Book Artist Management
