Award-winning comedian, best-selling author
Judith Lucy is one of Australia's most popular comedians. Known for her dry delivery and sharp observations, Judith has a huge and devoted following.
Judith has been a standup comedian for over 20 years and sprang to national prominence in 1993 when she joined the cast of ABC TV's The Late Show. Since then, she has made over 1000 stand-up appearances and her sell-out national live tours and work in radio, television and film have made her a household name.
She was a presenter on Triple J and was a regular on the Martin Molloy program. In 2004 she was announced as co-host of the 2DAY-FM breakfast show in Sydney; her sacking the following year became the subject of one of her most successful live touring shows, I Failed.
Judith's live stage shows are filled with sharply observed and painfully funny, honest personal monologues. Judith regularly sells out theatres around Australia as well at the Edinburgh and Montreal comedy festivals and is the recipient of numerous critic and comedy awards.
Her hit shows include King of the Road and Judith Lucy's Not Getting Any Younger. She was also one of the award-winning trio behind Comedy Is Not Pretty and Comedy Is Still Not Pretty, with Denise Scott and Lynda Gibson. Her stand-up show, Nothing Fancy, began touring in 2012.
Judith has made many television appearances on shows such as Spicks and Specks, Rove, Enough Rope with Andrew Denton. Agony Aunts and The Circle. In 2011, her first solo TV show, Judith Lucy's Spiritual Journey, on ABCTV was a hit and was released as a book in 2012.
Judith Lucy is also an actress and best-selling writer. She's appeared in the films Crackerjack and Bad Eggs and as a writer, has contributed features and columns to The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and Madison magazine. In 2008, her memoir, The Lucy Family Alphabet, attracted rave reviews, won the 2009 Australian Book Industry Awards - Biography of The Year, and has since been reprinted several times.
Judith's corporate clients include Arthur Anderson Consulting, Liberty Financial, Mortgage Ezy, Family Planning Qld, GIO Insurance, Mackintosh Securities, Ord Minnett Securities, News Limited and Telstra.
Lucy's delivery is martini dry, her perspective ironic and her honesty uncompromising, King Of The Road is marvelous.
The best stand up, sit down/lounge around comic I've seen.
It's not laugh a minute, it is bucket loads of laughs per minute … She is fast, she's clever and most of all Lucy is very, very funny.
Very, very funny ... Lucy rules supreme.
Lucy is one of our finest comic talents, of any sex, race or religion.

Great comedians have time for a sip of water after delivering a ripper punchline. There were times when Lucy could have gone to the bar for a glass of red and we'd still be laughing when she got back.
