Nottingham Comedy Festival: Laura Lexx: Knee Jerk

Laura Lexx: Knee Jerk
Part of the Nottingham Comedy Festival



Star of Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Hypothetical (Dave) and Roast Battle (Comedy Central), 'tour-de-force’ ★★★★ (Telegraph) Laura Lexx shines a light on how hard it is to be a good person these days. Why don’t we just leave each other alone and get on with the big stuff? 


Following a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe which earned her a prestigious Comedian's Choice Award for the second year in a row, Lexx has a laugh with society's big issues: social media, mental health, climate change and conceiving...but come for the jokes, not answers.
