Press Release – 2 June 2014

Posted by Lizzy Mace on Jun 2, 2014 in Edinburgh Fringe |

A cavalcade of comic characters from award-winning writer-performer Lizzy Mace


“Overlooked” at the Edinburgh Fringe

La Favorita Freestival, 1-25 August 2014

A roll-call of the small

Did you know there was a fourth bear living in the house that Goldilocks broke into? Remember when that children’s TV show with the sock puppets got cancelled and the presenter took herself hostage live on air? Did Emily Bronte really pen all those novels or was there a forgotten writing partner providing all her ideas? And what are they all doing now?

“Sketch comedy in the finest British tradition.”
TalkFringe, Adelaide Fringe 2014

Answering all these questions and raising an awful lot more, three-time Edinburgh Fringe performer and Argus Angel Award-winner, Lizzy Mace presents a series of endearingly awkward oddball underlings. Undervalued in their lifetimes, ignored by history, overlooked…

“You will surely be gasping with laughter… Don’t overlook this one.”
Adelaide Theatre Guide – Adelaide Fringe 2014

A gifted comic character actress, Lizzy’s credits include absurdist theatre, sketch comedy, improvisation and stand-up. As a writer-performer, her previous shows have received 4 and 5-star reviews at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringes, and at Brighton Fringe 2012, Rom Com Con – written and performed with Juliette Burton – won an Argus Angel Award for Excellence and was ‘Top Nominee‘ for Best Comedy at The Latest Festival Awards.

“Charming, understated and funny, Mace sneaks up on us unawares and moves us from pity to hilarity in one swift ruthlessly observed remark.”
Gscene – Brighton Fringe 2014

Lizzy has since spent six weeks studying improvisation and sketch comedy writing at the legendary Second City Training Center in Chicago, which has launched the careers of numerous stars of American film and TV including Bill Murray, Steve Carell and Tina Fey. On her return she teamed up with award-nominated director Logan Murray – who has worked with comedians including Greg Davies and Milton Jones – to devise and develop her first solo hour of character comedy. The show is now touring Fringes round the world in 2014, including a full run with La Favorita Freestival – Edinburgh’s newest festival.
