Somerset-born Laura Lexx brings her show, Knee Jerk, to online audiences via The Stand, Newcastle on Tuesday 27th April. She has already cracked Edinburgh with two sell out shows in two years and appeared on the small screen as part of Live At The Apollo. She’s twice won the Comedian’s Choice Best Performer Award and has an impressive roster of writing and performing credits to her name.

Sporting a stand-up persona reminiscent of a young, swearier version of Victoria Wood, the show will shine a hilarious light on how hard it is to be a good person these days. In Knee Jerk, Laura uses the tricks she learned to cope with her eco-anxiety to try and soothe the world’s temper and calm our phobias.

Laura takes on social media, mental health, climate change and conceiving – asking questions such as can you change the world without offending anyone? Can we stop being terrified and start being nicer to each other? Can you use netball to solve the gender pay gap? Spoiler alert: come for jokes, not for answers!

Laura Lexx’s livestream takes place via The Stand, Newcastle’s website on Tuesday 27th April, and will be available to buy as a stream on demand until 10pm the following day.
