Having gone to stage school when she was 12, Lou eloped her love of t-ting about, and she was told that if she knuckled down, she could make a brilliant serious dramatic actress.

Her first proper acting job was dressing up as a six-foot orange teddy bear that lived with four other bears, very dramatic and very serious.

As a writer, she has written for R3’s The Verb, R4’s The Show What You Wrote, CBBC presentation with Hacker T Dog, and more notably was a regular contributor to the Standard Issue Magazine.

Her Edinburgh show 2017 ‘I Love Lou C’ was critically acclaimed which led to a run at Soho Theatre, London. The show tackled Lou’s experience with baby loss and was voted finalist in the Funny Women Awards for Best Show 2017. It is due to be filmed for ‘Next Up’ and is currently being developed for radio.

Lou is co-host of her podcast Spit or swallow where celebrity guest joins her for a drink and chat with hilarious results.
