The Dental Awards 2018 is set to be a star-studded event rewarding the talent and amazing contributions made across the profession. It is sure to be an entertaining, fun-filled evening and the person in charge of making sure everything runs smoothly is comedian, Mock The Week panellist, and Live At The Apollo favourite, Zoe Lyons.
Zoe’s trademark high energy, brilliantly observed routines and sharply written material has left her with an ever-growing fan base. Last year she won both the Comedian’s Comedian Award and Chortle Best Club Comic.

This year Zoe Lyons will be returning to the Edinburgh Festival with a new show ‘Entry level Human’, before embarking on a nationwide tour.
Zoe’s debut hour at the Edinburgh Festival gained her a nomination for the Perrier Award, and she has hosted the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny Final in Edinburgh for the last four years. Zoe is also a talented actress, having starred in Outings at the Edinburgh Festival in 2014, which was later transferred to the St James Theatre in London.
