Lance Comfort (11 August 1908 – 25 August 1966) was an English film director and producer born in Harrow, London.

In a career spanning over 25 years he became one of the most prolific film directors in Britain, though never gained critical attention and remained on the fringes of the film industry, creating mostly B movies.[1]

Comfort carried on working almost right up to his death in Worthing, Sussex, 1966. He had four children: Edward, born in 1929, James, born in 1931, Anna, born in 1934 and Jack, born in 1936.
