271 – Laura Lexx

Posted 5 years ago on December 4th, 2018.

Unfailingly bright and bubbly, Laura Lexx has recently shifted into higher gear, with a breakthrough fringe show about an ongoing mental health struggle. We learn how her director Jessica Fostekew pushed her to be more vulnerable than her club comic instincts would ordinarily allow, discuss bailing at competition finals, and consider melting down the fat to get to the muscle... 

Extras available for donors on the private podcast at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders include Laura on changes in her mindset that helped her improve; the differences between what audiences and industry are looking for in a festival show; reflections on other useful painful experiences, and a warning for people considering a certain student comedy competition... 

The show Laura was doing at the Edinburgh festival was "Trying" and you can see it at The Soho Theatre in London from 20-23 February 2019 - https://sohotheatre.com/shows/laura-lexx-trying/ 

Catch Laura on the BBC's Live at the Apollo Christmas Special on 20th December!
