Lizzie Bates, member of critically acclaimed sketch group The Boom Jennies (BBC Radio 4), is bringing her highly-anticipated debut solo comedy show to Edinburgh.

Packed with endearing everyday rebels, Reprobates is a bold, ballsy debut from an exceptionally talented comedy actress.

In this cavalcade of riotous character comedy, we meet Paula, who won't get out of her neighbour's hot tub for love nor money, Hildegard, the Swiss finishing school mistress with a fetish for fast food, and Judith, the doctor's receptionist who won't let patients past without a thumb war.

In addition to securing a second Radio 4 series with The Boom Jennies (broadcast summer 2014) Lizzy along with writing partner Anna Emerson (also part of The Boom Jennies) won the 2013 Bafta Rocliffe award (the yearly award presented to emerging comedy screenwriters) for their sitcom script New Habits. Their winning script was then performed at the New York TV Festival as part of the 'Future of British Comedy' showcase.

Lizzie has also appeared in BBC Radio 4's Sketchorama, written sketches for ITV's Off Their Rockers, starred in the pilot for primetime BBC1 show, Richard Hammond's Secret Service and played a zombie Princess Diana in the short film Misguided.
