We're so excited for the return of Laura Lexx, I mean just google her she's one of the best comics today. Honest words hilariously told

She performed Tyrannosaurus Lexx at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2016 and was a finalist at the 2016 Amused Moose Comedy Award.[3] Lexx received a level of notoriety in 2016 when her on stage putdowns to a sexist heckler went viral.[4] Lexx was nominated for Best Compere at the 2016[5] and 2017 Chortle Awards.[6] Her 2018 Edinburgh show was called Trying and discussed her attempts at starting a family and the effects this had on her mental health.[7] She reflected that she hoped her honesty would help lift the stigma around these issues for many.[8] Laura won Best Performer in the Comedian's Choice Awards and was in the top 10 of Dave's Funniest Joke of the Fringe 2018. The show also transferred from the Edinburgh Festival for a successful run at London's Soho Theatre.[9] Lexx's 2019 Edinburgh show was called Knee Jerk and dealt with political topics associated with the fall out from the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum.[10] Lexx won the comedians choice award at the 2019 Chortle Awards.[11]

Her television appearances have included Roast Battle,[12] Hypothetical, Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week.[13] Lexx landed a book deal after a series of tweets during the lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic imagining life with Liverpool F.C. manager Jurgen Klopp went viral and amassed over 5.6 million views. The book deal is designed to expand the idea into a book, called Klopp Actually: (Imaginary) Life with Football's Most Sensible Heartthrob to be released in Autumn 2020. The company, Two Roads, also bought the rights to a second story called Pivot a novel about an amateur women's netball team, which they aim to release in 2022.[14][15] This led to guesting on The Football Ramble[16] and The Anfield Wrap podcasts.[17] Other podcast appearances have included RHLSTP with Richard Herring and Sarah Millican’s Standard Issue podcast.[18]

Lexx's is very active on social media with thousands of followers on Twitter and YouTube. During lockdown 2020 she created frequent YouTube series including "As We Know It Day",[19] "The Lockdown Book Club"[20] and "The Twelve Days of Kloppmas"
