Lloyd Langford ("A rising star” The Guardian; Buzzcocks writer)

Lloyd Langford is regularly Rhod Gilbert's sidekick in a number of television programmes, and has just made his first appearance on QI.  A prolific writer and performer, Lloyd Langford is a highly sought after comedian with his striking combination of natural wit undercut with a playful curiosity.

Born in Wales but currently living in London, Langford's stand-up is an ever-evolving mixture of personal anecdotes, memorable one-liners and topical material.

“A wonderfully remorseless stream of pithy gags, delivered in an unshowy south Wales drawl.” The Guardian
“One of the sharpest comedic minds on the circuit.” The Guardian
“A lugubrious Welshman with a knack of turning out juicy one-liners, Langford is a rising star.” The Guardian
“There are….. stand-ups who are able to grab hold of ordinary, mundane events, spot things that have never occurred to the rest of us, and turn the results into a spell-binding, hysterically funny comedy. Lloyd Langford is certainly one of those guys.” The Guardian
“Particularly brilliant” Fest
“Brilliant, charming, understated” The Independent
“A rich tapestry of jokes at his command.” The Independent
“Just the right level of Welshness” The Mirror
“Reaches beyond stock observation to a level of metaphysical enquiry, acquiring the demeanour of a wise fool.” Chortle
“The sharpest of comedy instincts and an innate grasp of timing and pace…Makes stand-up look deceptively simple.” Chortle
“Langford could talk about anything and make it sound quirky and funny.” The List
“His laidback, charming approach to comedy makes him instantly likeable.” Time Out
“A quick and instinctively funny mind.” Metro
“A born banterer, Langford handles swerve balls with ease.” The Stage
“There doesn’t seem to be a particular shred of malice in Langford’s soul” The List
