A LIVE at The Apollo star will headline the Christmas edition of Lyme Regis Comedy Club this weekend.

Laura Lexx will perform at the Marine Theatre with support from Jon Wagstaffe, Morgan Rees, and resident compere, Tom Glover.

As well as performing on the Live at the Apollo Christmas special, Laura has appeared on At The Edinburgh Festival (BBC Two), The Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra) and The Jason Manford Show (Absolute Radio).

Following on from the critically acclaimed run of Lexx’s show, Trying, last year, she has gone on to win Best Performer at the Comedian’s Choice Awards (2018). She was also included in the top 10 list for Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe (2018).

The supporting line-up begins with the westcountry favourite, Jon Wagstaffe. Beating the competition to be dubbed ‘Tewkesbury’s finest stand-up comic’, Wagstaffe’s take on modern life will have any audience in fits of laughter. Also supporting the Christmas edition of the Marine’s Comedy Club is Morgan Rees. This softly spoken Welsh comedian comes jam-packed with an arsenal of quippy one-liners and hilarious short stories. Rees has appeared on BBC Radio 4 in the finals of the BBC New Comedy Award and was also a runner-up in So You Think You’re Funny (2017).
