Lou Sanders is one of Britain’s most original comedians, and a fantastic choice for corporate cabaret performances and awards hosting. She is the champion of series eight of Taskmaster (DAVE) with other recent television appearances including QI (BBC2), Travel Man: 48 Hours in… (Channel 4), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Hypothetical (DAVE), Aisling Bea’s sitcom This Way Up (C4), Roast Battle (Comedy Central), The Russell Howard Hour (Sky 1), Jon Richardson’s Ultimate Worrier (DAVE) and Karl Pilkington’s sitcom Sick of It (Sky One). Earlier this year, Lou also made her debut appearance on hit US series The Late Late Show with James Corden (CBS).
Lou’s 2018 stand-up show Shame Pig received rave reviews, added extra shows at both the Edinburgh Fringe and sold out three separate runs at London’s Soho Theatre. The show subsequently toured and was named a top show to see by publications including The Guardian, The Scotsman, The List, The Mirror and The Evening Standard. Lou returned to Edinburgh with Say Hello To Your New Step-Mummy which again was critically-acclaimed and completely sold out. Lou is taking the show across the UK on her largest nationwide tour to date, and has made stateside performances in LA and New York.
Her radio work includes regular appearances on Radio 4’s The Unbelievable Truth, and she also supported Katherine Ryan on her latest West End run and the recording of her Netflix special.
“We have hired Lou several times for our events and she has always been extremely professional and utterly funny. Each time, Lou tailored her material to meet our needs and was attentive to our brief. She has hosted and performed sets for us to fit with our audiences of consultants, doctors and nurses (at the Bloomsbury Theatre, The Arts Theatre and just recently at The Shard), but I believe she could write and perform material for any field of business, anywhere. We would not hesitate to have her back.”

“Lou Sanders hosted a corporate gig for us in March 2017. This was for around 200 professionals working in the television industry and charity sector, to raise money for Plan UK. As a host we could not have asked for more, Lou was hilarious and remembered everything we asked of her on the night. In the run up to the event and on the night, she went above and beyond for us. The audience left extremely happy and the feedback I received the next day was tremendous – I had dozens of messages complementing her and saying that she made people’s night!”

“Lou Sanders performed for us in 2017 for a corporate event of designers and sponsors. She has hosted and delivered sets for numerous tailored comedy nights for a range of clientele. Lou is an exciting and rising comic that comes with a fresh and original approach to stand up, her ability to read the room and keep them attentive to her story telling is a crucial part of what we do. She handles a chaotic crowd with expertise, fun and authority. We have already re-booked her!”
