Lizzy Mace is an award-winning comedy writer and performer. As one half of comedy duo Mace and Burton, their show Rom Com Con received 4- and 5- star reviews; won an Argus Angel Award for Excellence and was Top Nominee for Best Comedy in The Latest Awards (Brighton Fringe 2012); and at Edinburgh Fringe 2012 was in The List’s Top 5 Free Shows, Chortle’s Top 10 True-Life Comedies and reached number 4 on Edtwinge.com out of all 2600+ shows at the Fringe.
As a comedy actor, Lizzy’s credits include Mrs Smith in The Bald Prima Donna, The Sitcom Trials at Leicester Square Theatre, Middie Paradock in A Resounding Tinkle, comedy sketch groups Moulin Exes and Messrs Comedy, improvisers The Amazing Spectacles and immersive comedy performers Gideon Reeling.
As a stand-up, Lizzy has performed spots at the Adelaide Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, in Chicago, and on home turf across the London open mic circuit and at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes. Her debut 50-minute solo show Crush was well-received by reviewers and audience alike at the Edinburgh Fringe 2010, with one critic describing it as “a charming presentation into the nature of romantic crushes … one of the more fruitful hours spent in the smaller rooms of the Free Fringe” (Chortle.co.uk).
In July and August 2013, Lizzy spent 6 weeks studying improvisation and sketch comedy at the legendary Second City Training Center, Chicago. Her new character-based solo show Overlooked will have its world premiere at the Adelaide Fringe in March 2014 before touring other fringe festivals throughout the year.
