Judith Lucy at Parramatta Riverside Theatres

USTRALIAN comedian Judith Lucy will bring her Nothing Fancy show to Riverside Theatres, Parramatta, this month.

Also known as a best-selling author, radio, TV and film personality, Lucy will visit western Sydney with her stand-up act.

She burst on to the national TV scene in 1993 after joining The Late Show.

But that same year, just as her career was beginning to take off, she discovered a family secret.

On Christmas Day, 1993, Lucy found out she was adopted.

What was meant to be a day of celebration turned into one of confusion and resulted in the disintegration of her family.

More than a decade later, Lucy got a job co-hosting a breakfast show in Sydney.

She appeared regularly on the airwaves on fellow comedian Mick Molloy's program, who she starred with in the Australian movie about lawn bowls, Cracker Jack.

However, her own hosting stint on the 2DAY-FM show was brought to an abrupt end in 2005, when she was sacked.

She didn't take the decision lightly and subsequently named her following tour I Failed.

Lucy has featured alongside several Australian entertainment personalities including Tony Martin, Peter Helliar, Peter Rowstorn and Denise Scott.

She also enjoyed a stint as a regular cast member on the show Rove.

She recently returned to her own on-screen project titled Judith Lucy's Spiritual Adventures.

The TV show followed Lucy on a journey to find something that she believed in.

Nothing Fancy will be see Lucy bare her comedic soul to the audience with pure jokes and no extras such as dancing or singing.
