Top Comedian, actress and writer Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer who indulges her audience in an unrelenting childish attention. After a whirlwind introduction to the London comedy scene which saw her reach the finals of both the Chortle and Paramount student competitions
Laura’s credits include The Comedy Club: Machfest Live Special (BBC Radio 4 Extra) and co-hosting The Jason Manford Show (Absolute Radio). Laura was also interviewed by Rob Deering for The Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra)
Laura was nominated for Best Compere at the 2016 and 2017 Chortle Awards. She was also shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and reached the finals of the Paramount Student Comedy Award, Chortle Student Comedy Award and Funny Women competitions. Laura has gigged all over the UK and in Europe as well as providing tour support for Russell Kane. Laura has performed at Latitude, Larmer Tree Festival, Bestival and Kendall Calling. She has a quirky, Somerset spin on the world and is happy to relax with the audience and take any subject from a frank discussion of her struggles with IBS to the televisual preferences of sleeping bags. Yes, sleeping bags. Laura Lexx built up her initial stage confidence as part of an improvised comedy troupe, leaving her with the skill and confidence to build up a quick rapport with the audience as a compere. An avid writer, she has also produced and directed several stage plays at University, which were well received and allowed her to express a more serious side to her performance skills. She continues to build an eager online following with her blog and has had recent success at the Edinburgh Fringe after developing a brand new panel show format, Quiz in My Pants, which delighted guest acts and audiences equally
