Judith Lucy Chats Stand-Up And The Importance Of An Audience On Breakfasters
Judith Lucy, broadcaster, best-selling author and comedy superstar of the stage and screen, joins Breakfasters to chat about her upcoming stand-up special Judith Lucy Vs Men. Her stand-up show toured nation-wide for 18 months before now being immortalised in a new special online. Her advice to viewers watching her new show is to view it as a historical artefact, remember the good old days when people went to theatres and we could sit next to each other and laugh. She says the thing she misses most at this time is laughter but also the audience and the unique relationship that comes with every performance. Judith says her shows can tend to be on the personal side and that she enjoys interacting with the audience as it gives them a chance to talk about their lives. During isolation she, like everyone else, has been making a lot of sourdough, drinking and weeping. She is keen to get back to the really simple things in life, like hanging out with friends without Zoom.
