Profile


“real comedic steel” The Guardian

"probably the funniest solo comedian that we saw all week." joyzine.org, Edinburgh 2012

“Charm personified with a fast paced confessional set.” The Argus

"bubbly, cheeky and, above all, absolutely hilarious." The Somerset County Gazette

"razor-sharp wit and delivery" - Beeping Bush

*** Broadway Baby -
“she immediately charms the audience with her quick quips and seamlessly improvised banter”
“consistently funny and charming”
“fantastically offbeat and hilarious”
“imaginative oddball style”

**** ThreeWeeks -
“an impressive knack for stand-up”
“the comedy equivalent of a pinball machine”

"Lovely, sincere and honest... truly entertaining... an hour's insight into her merry life wasn't enough... hilarious, kind-hearted and genuine comedy." Arts Award Voice

"Lexx is incredibly engaging and it's difficult to see what will stop her success." The Skinny

"Optimistic, exuberant... it's difficult not to love her just a little bit... comedy really suits her." ThreeWeeks

Who'd be a woman doing stand-up? Not only do you have to deal with idiot newspapers running features seemingly every other month asking "Are women funny?", but you have to deal with all sorts of misogynistic niggles on the circuit, from promoters who will only book one woman a night like they're some kind of novelty act, to clubs that hire comics to perform alongside strippers. Somerset's Laura Lexx writes a brilliant blog that touches on these grim struggles as well as featuring plenty of alternately smart and daffy stories of her ramshackle everyday life. That's of a piece with her stand-up, rooted in the clash between her extremely middle-class, polite-and-proper expectations of the world and the way the realities of life continually fail to meet her standards. It's understated but well-realised stuff, and don't mistake the gentleness of her approach for a lack of real comedic steel. The Guardian

Testimonials:

We hold our Annual Awards Ceremony every year in London and have a different personality each time – Laura was by far one of the most engaged, with a room full of business men and a few hecklers her delivery was flawless – it’s no easy task amusing a room full of people but she did with amazing charisma and hilarity. She was by far one of the best comedians we have had over the years and would highly recommend her, even the more stiff upper lipped of the audience were smitten.
