Laura Lexx – Lovely (EMX Management in association with Andrew Roach Talent)

Laura Lexx

Laura Lexx has had a good life so far. But she’s not smug about it, because how does one tackle a debut stand-up hour without a bit of personal tragedy to talk about? In her optimistic, exuberant style, Lexx covers everything from Disneyland to animal mating habits on a quest to prove it’s okay to lead a happy, successful life. Even as a typically miserable Brit it’s difficult not to love her just a little bit, as she bounces her way through the hour. Even when broaching more difficult subjects there’s still a swing in her step, as well as a humbling recognition that she’s very lucky. Lexx adores her job, and so she should; comedy really suits her.

Underbelly Med Quad, until 30 Aug.
