Zoe’s trademark high energy, brilliantly observed routines and sharply written material, have left her with an ever-growing fan base. Last year she won both the Comedian’s Comedian Award and Chortle Best Club Comic.

Corporate Testimonials:

Zoe is a fantastic compere and comic: flexible, professional, punctual, with an acute understanding of the clients needs and, of course, incredibly funny. Her comedy has a wide-ranging appeal for all types of events and people - we highly recommend her!

Rachel Porter, Event Manager

Zoe was a fantastic and personable host. She really gauged the audience and interacted with the subjects which matter to them, as well as maintaining their  concentration which is never easy during an awards ceremony. Zoe was a pleasure  to work with, engaging with all our staff and production crew on a personable level. I would highly recommend Zoe, and we will look to book her again in the future.


The comedy night with Zoe was the highlight of our Wellbeing Week. She was fantastic, funny and engaged with audience. We have had excellent feedback from attendees, and we would recommend her in a heartbeat!
