Helen Lederer

Helen Lederer is a well-known British comedian, actress and writer. She cut her teeth at London’s famous Comedy Store in the 1980s alongside Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Ben Elton. Since then, Helen has performed in dozens of television shows and films from Absolutely Fabulous and One Foot in the Grave to Horrid Henry. She’s also performed on the stage in theatre productions of Educating Rita, Calendar Girls and The Vagina Monologues.

Helen’s debut novel, Losing It, is written with the same wit, observational humour and bittersweet characterizations as her stand-up material. Hilariously funny, it focuses on a middle-aged woman who is divorced, in debt, over weight and so desperate to change her life that she agrees to be the front-woman for a new diet pill. Helen describes Losing It as –‘mid-lit’ whilst Stephen Fry considers it ‘Desperately funny, desperately engaging, desperately readable and desperately adorable.’

Helen will be in conversation with Helen Taylor.
