Funny Bones

ROXY BOURDILLON MEETS COMEDIAN AND “LITTLE MISFIT” ZOE LYONS

Zoe met her wife Sindy 19 years ago on the Isle of Lesvos. That’s not a joke, that’s her actual life. “Whenever people ask, we go, ‘…Greece’. They go, ‘Where in Greece?’ We go, ‘In… in Le… in Lesvos, it was Lesvos.’”

I laugh so hard I nearly spit out my frothy coffee. Zoe has funny bones, which come in handy when you’re a professional comedian. When we meet in Soho I quickly discover her delightful ability to find the funny in every little thing, slipping into silly voices and pulling animated faces to punctuate her anecdotes. She’s generous with her own laugh too, as she chuckles at the absurdity of meeting her wife on Sappho’s island and the extraordinary volume of the bloke at the next table’s sneeze – “Bless you,” she mutters. “That was quite the ear-splitter.” But let’s get back to her Lesvos love story…

“I had lost a tequila challenge. My friends tried to get me into a van and I slid straight across the seat and fell out the other side. Sindy picked me off a carpark floor and threw me back in the van. It was love at first sight. That’s it! That tequila sodden mess with no prospects. Let’s go for that.”
