Loulie, AKA the face that launched a thousand dicks, examines conduct (in the media, baby), mental health (other people's, I'm fine) and perverts (that one is mainly me, actually). I’ll be oversharing, wanging on about spirituality and giving everyone some much unwanted advice. As seen/heard on Taskmaster, QI, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Hypothetical, The Russell Howard Hour, The Unbelievable Truth, Ultimate Worrier and more. ‘A comedian who leaves you wanting more’ **** (Times). **** (Guardian). **** (Evening Standard). **** (Chortle.co.uk).

Radio HA-HA (4/5 stars) 89 days ago

Lou Sanders is the type of comedian who can make two hours seem like one; which is no easy feat.
