Lucy Trodd is a very tall comedic actor and improviser. She mostly enjoys sitting in her writing shed by the seaside in Folkestone.
After university, Lucy worked extensively with legendary theatre maker Ken Campbell. This led to an intense affair with improvisation and the founding of Showstopper! The Improvised Musical (West End, Radio 4 and many Edinburgh Festivals). Lucy has performed in over 800 full-length improvised musicals. In 2019 for The Other Palace run, Lucy produced and sings on the first ever Showstopper! CD.
Trodd En Bratt is Lucy and Ruth Bratt's absurd character double act. Following the success of series 1, they were commissioned by BBC Radio 4/NBC Universal to write a second sketch series. The show is based on their hugely successful Edinburgh show Well Done You. It was described by the Metro as a 'potpourri of the weird, the wonderful and the downright demented, held together by winning onstage chemistry'. They were finalists in the prestigious BBC Audio Awards 2015. Now available on the BBC Sounds App.
As a solo writer, Lucy was awarded a Peggy Ramsay grant to write her stage play Mothers' House. She was a finalist in the 2011 Sky/Funny Women writing competition. She is currently developing sitcom ideas with Susan Harrison.
