Lisa Langston [Jan 2000)Member Profile:


Lisa Langston

'An ugly duckling that developed into a beautiful swan', An apt description of a talented individual who, although was 28 before passing her driving test, became the fattest woman to play football for English Universities Womens' 1st XI at the tender age of 19.

Despite being dismal in audition, Lisa  blagged herself a place on a Theatre and Educational Research degree at Lancaster Uni.  She was so bad that the degree quickly became Educational Research and a bit of Theatre.  But she so loved being with such a talented group of aspiring actors/esess that she became a total anarchist dabbling in "experimental, abstract and alternative theatre".  With this and her conversion to the feminist cause, a niche on the stage was found in comedy (or at least making people laugh without being given detention!)

After leaving university, Lisa concentrated on playing football (West Bromwich Albion), earning money, failing relationships and over-eating... before, that is, she met Colin, fell in love and gave birth to a beautiful baby, Ellie in 1998.

Lisa lives and works in Lincoln. As well as Colin and her daughter, she loves Pantoland, Grimsby Town FC and Charlotte & David Broughton!
