BROADCAST MAGAZINE HOT SHOT WRITER 2011
Broadcast Hotshot Lloyd Woolf and writing partner Joe Tucker's new sitcom Big Bag World is currently on Wednesdays nights at 9pm on Comedy Central. With a stellar cast of British television comedy heroes, Big Bad World follows hapless graduate (Blake Harrison) on his quest to find his feet after University.
Lloyd also co-wrote the 2012 sitcom Parents commissioned by Sky1 and produced by Objective, began on Sky1 on the 6th July. Parents is a feel-good family sitcom starring Sally Phillips and Darren Strange about three generations living under one roof.
Warm, whimsical and wonderfully funny Lloyd Woolf can turn his hand to many performance genres. Best known as a quarter of the Cowards sketch group Woolf has won critical acclaim not only for his writing and performing within the group but also for his debut solo show in 2008.
With regular appearances on radios and TVs across the UK Woolf has become one of the hottest new talents in Britain. His personable, charming and endearing delivery instantly captivates the audience and creates an intimacy to his performances whether it be to a broadcast or to a live audience.
This ability to draw audiences to him is apparent in his skillful and prolific writing that has seen Cowards rise from a Fringe show to a BBC TV hit.
Lloyd is also available for voiceover work. To book him for this, please contact Earache Voices.
Having taken a short break to concentrate on writing and filming Lloyd is now resuming his stand up career and can be seen performing at clubs around the country.

Press for Lloyd Woolf: 10 Shows I Abandoned
“Woolf has natural comic timing and some lovely, off-beat ideas” The Observer
“You’ll find yourself captivated and hanging on his every foolishly sparkling word” The List
“Woolf is an adorable comedian…A show that will make you laugh out loud” Three Weeks
“This lad has bags of talent and is very personable” One4Review
“an endearing debut” Metro
“an oddball performer who intrigues throughout” Fest
Press for Cowards TV show
“Funny and original” The Stage
“hugely watchable comedians” TV Scoop
“It's only got a three-show taster run, but the episodes are brilliant. If BBC4 has got any sense - and the likes of The Thick Of It and Screenwipe suggests so - they'll order a second, full-length series pronto.” The Guardian
“Sketch shows rarely justify the sum of their parts, but there is sometimes an exception. Adapted from the Radio 4 show, the cowards in question are comedians Tim Key, Tom Basden, Stefan Golaszewski and Lloyd Woolf and their act works because the sketches are a blend of the subtle, imaginative and absurd.” The Telegraph
“Individually, Tom Basden, Stefan Golaszewski, Tim Key and Lloyd Woolf have caused quite a stir on the live comedy circuit, and their shared love of deadpan, absurd and irreverent humour shines out in this inventive, enjoyable and subtle sketch show.” Metro
Press for Cowards Live
“Their writing is sharp, some of the best lines delivered as seeming asides, and their attention to mundane detail rendering the absurdity of their situations almost believable. Moreover, they are young, likable and confident in their abilities..” The Scotsman
“Cowards is an impressive new quartet that possesses the right combination of acting talent and well-written material. With quick, snappy scenes that occasionally recall early Fry and Laurie in their mix of silly surrealism” The Observer
“Impressibvely observant writing coupled with a depth of characterisation” The Stage
“Fucking funny…perfect comic timing” Three Weeks
“dazzling lines” Metro
