About Lloyd Langford: Why The Big Face?

The ever-charming Port Talbotian returns to the Fringe a newly made double-champion after recently winning BBC1’s Celebrity Mastermind and the Leicester Comedy Festival’s Best Show award 2018 with his much-loved combination of jokes, personal anecdotes, petty grievances and offbeat observations.

Lloyd’s new show ‘Lloyd Langford: Why The Big Face?” has already played to sold out audiences at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. He turns his pin-sharp comedic eye on to topics as diverse as terrorism, garden birds and the British inability to cope with a balcony. It’s a gag-filled and often frank examination of the ridiculous situations he finds himself in, whether stranded in New York due to a snowstorm with friends and fellow comedians James Acaster, Ed Gamble and John Robins, or trapped in a malfunctioning robotic massage chair at a Japanese airport.

Lloyd’s many TV appearances, alongside his recent championship on Celebrity Mastermind, include QI (BBC1), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2), Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave) as well as a regular panellist on Ask Rhod Gilbert (BBC1). He has also contributed as a writer for Live at the Apollo and has penned jokes for the likes of Rhod, Simon Amstell and Frankie Boyle.

He’s no stranger to radio either, be it co-hosting regularly on the Rhod Gilbert Show (BBC Radio Wales) or appearing on Rhod Gilbert's Bulging Barrel of Laughs (BBC Radio 2), The Unbelievable Truth (BBC Radio 4), The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and The Jon Richardson Show (BBC 6 Music). He is co-writer and performer on the BBC Radio Wales Sony Award winning sketch show Here Be Dragons.

Lloyd has performed at comedy festivals all over the world from Melbourne to Montreal, and occasionally tours as part of comedy collective GIT with Dan Atkinson and Jon Richardson.
