Josephine Lacey

Josephine Lacey first came onto the London comedy circuit in October 2008. Drawing on her Jamaican-Irish heritage and life experiences she delivers her material with an honest humour and a natural raw energy with the guile and wisdom of someone that has been there, done it and bought the t-shirt. She has been described as ‘eloquently filthy,’ delivering her material with an effortless charm and huge smile that leaves audiences loving her and wanting more.

Based in London, Josephine regularly performs all around town, the rest of England and in Ireland.

Her performances at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010 & 2011 made a massive impact on audiences and promoters alike leaving her comedy voice in great demand.

In 2013 Josephine penned her first one woman show “Me and My Little Einstein” about living and raising her non-verbal autistic son which gained much interest and left audiences in England and Ireland in stitches. 2021 has seen the release of her second solo show “Autism Mama and Puberty” which is a must see!

You can watch Josephine in action every Friday and Saturday night as resident emcee at the ‘late late’ show at The Top Secret Comedy Club, Covent Garden.

Josephine’s brutal and caustic delivery left people in stitches. This lady’ delightfully un-ladylike style is powerful and honest but always funny” – Jeff Leach, TV Presenter

“Josephine is a comedy bombshell, just light the blue touchpaper and watch the mirth erupt. She has a raw natural energy which is a joy to watch and even better to watch an audience's reaction as she explodes on stage. – BBC
