The Edinburgh preview season continues with two fantastic and unmissable shows.
LAURA LEXX –“LOVELY”
How are you meant to write an Edinburgh Fringe show when everything in your life is going great? Well, after figuring out that her life is actually going well, Laura Lexx has had to do just that. A show about being happy, loving life and the little things in it, join Laura as she brings a refreshing debut hour of uplifting and celebratory comedy.
Happy-go-lucky Laura Lexx is filled with unbridled optimism and glee. After reaching the finals of the Paramount and Chortle Student Comedy Awards in her first year, Laura has built on her success and gone on to perform around the UK and throughout Europe at several festivals as well as tour support for Russell Kane’s Posturing Delivery tour. In 2010, she was a finalist in the Funny Women competition and was selected to compete for the BBC New Comedy Award in 2012 and 2014. She has had previous success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after developing the brand new panel show Quiz In My Pants, which delighted both acts and audiences equally.

What the press have said about Laura Lexx:

“one of the most delightful performers you’re ever likely to see” GQ

“real comedic steel” Guardian

“next-generation Lucy Porter” Chortle


ALISTAIR BARRIE – “NO MORE STAGE THREE”

Alistair Barrie is one of the most widely travelled and respected topical stand ups on the international comedy circuit. Kate Copstick described his 2013 show as “Properly smart comedy for grown-ups. By a properly smart comic.” His 2012 show ‘Urban Fogey’ was runner up in the Amused Moose Award for best show at the Fringe and Bruce Dessau recently described him as “one of the comedy circuit’s smartest, most versatile stand-ups.”

Alistair spent much of 2014 on the road discussing the constant barrage of bad news from Malaysian Airways to the trial of Oscar Pistorius to the rise of ISIS. He also managed to get married in December to cheer himself up a bit.

Then, while he was in Afghanistan performing for the UN troops in January 2015, Alistair’s wife was diagnosed with grade three breast cancer, which gave him some perspective on what really constitutes bad news.

‘No More Stage Three’ covers the downs and occasional ups of watching your partner go through treatment for a life-threatening disease, from shared hair loss to chemo farts, helping to shop for breasts, what Fec really means and the hilarious subject of statutory sick pay.

Come and watch another comedian make it all about him. (His wife wrote that bit.)

“Barrie’s analytical nous and store of snappy gags mark him out. Excellent.”
The Independent
“Dangling on the edge of the big time” - Fest
“Sharp as a guillotine blade” - Cape Town Argus
