After two sell-out Edinburgh shows in two years, star of Live At The Apollo and double winner of The Comedian's Choice 'Best Performer Award', Laura Lexx is going on her first UK tour with Knee Jerk.

Knee Jerk shines a hilarious light on how hard it is to be a good person these days. The world seems furious at the moment, whether that is over Brexit, carbon emissions, gender, plastics in the sea, nationality or whether or not we should be aiming for the future or the past. Maybe Laura is projecting, but, is all this arguing and fighting down to the fact we're absolutely terrified? 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 down our various phobias.

Laura has a laugh taking on many of society's big issues - 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!
