What a way to spend a Monday, with soon-to-be-superstar stand-ups Eshaan Akbar and Laura Lexx
19:30 - Eshaan Akbar: Prophet Like It's Hot
21:00 - Laura Lexx: Trying
Eshaan Akbar: Prophet Like It's Hot
"Much-needed... plenty of quick-fire gags" ★★★★ - Fest Mag
Following his sell-out run in 2017, Akbar returns armed with a copy of the Qur’An in hand. It’s a much funnier book than people give it credit for. Akbar's own journey tells him that faith still has a place in modern society. 'Genius stand-up comedy' ***** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).
Laura Lexx: Trying
"A bouncy, bubbly stand-up star is born" ★★★★ - Telegraph
'One can only hope there's some life-altering catastrophe around the corner for Lexx' (BroadwayBaby.com). Luckily, the award-winning comedian with 'superb material, brilliant delivery and irresistible personality' (★★★★ TheWeeReview.com), has had a breakdown. Laura spent 2017 trying to get through therapy, trying the patience of everyone and trying unsuccessfully for a baby. She's done trying now; it's time to laugh. As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra and Absolute Radio. Winner: Best Compere, UK Comedy Awards 2017. Amused Moose Comedy Award finalist 2016. 'Exceptionally funny' ★★★★ (One4Review.com). 'A joy' (Independent). 'Real comedic steel' (Guardian).
Lineup subject to change.
