Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Laura Lexx and Steve Bugeja
Laura Lexx: Knee Jerk (Work in Progress)
Star of Live at the Apollo, Laura Lexx is a “bouncy, bubbly stand up star” (Telegraph).
Her sell-out 2018 show “Trying”, was “a masterpiece” ***** (Voice) and earned her a prestigious Comic’s Comic Award. Now, Lexx takes on society’s big issues, but come for jokes not answers.
The world seems furious at the moment… over Brexit, carbon, gender, plastic, nationality and whether or not we should be aiming for the future or the past. Maybe Laura is projecting, but is all this arguing and fighting down to the fact we’re absolutely terrified?
In Knee Jerk, Laura is using the tricks she learned to cope with her eco-anxiety to try and soothe the world’s temper and calm down our various phobias.
