“It feels amazing to have won Content Leader of the Year. I have some amazing colleagues, I know how amazing they are and so I feel incredibly lucky to have been picked out of that group of people.”
This year's PPA Digital Awards take place on the evening of Thursday November 1 at Hilton Bankside, London.
Zoe Lyons took her first steps on the road to comedy back in 2003 after training as an actress at the Poor School in London. It was obvious that comedy was her true forte and she won the Funny Women Competition in 2004. Her debut Edinburgh show was nominated for the if.comedy newcomer award and in 2008 she won the Dave, Funniest Joke of The Fringe Award.
Zoe is now a familiar face on TV with credits including Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Dave's One Night Stand (Dave) and Don't Sit In The Front Row (Sky Atlantic). She also regularly appears on The Wright Stuff (Channel 5) and Mock The Week (BBC2) and can regularly be heard on radio.
Zoe headlines comedy clubs across the UK and she is a regular visitor to the Edinburgh festival. Zoe has also worked extensively abroad including Australia, New Zealand, the Far East and across Europe. Since 2006 she has also run her own very popular monthly night, Bent Double, at the Komedia in Brighton.
Always fizzing with indignation and throwing out a hugely enjoyable mix of brutal put downs and richly funny stories. Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd. The Guardian
