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.
With her winsome charm and effervescent likability Lexx, who describes her condition as "post-natal depression but without the ‘natal’ bit" talks candidly about her mental health - so concerned for the future of the planet she was bringing her hypothetical child into that she became a virtual lock-in.
Expect strength and poignancy, with some killer quips about a certain cosmetic retailer and a gripping tale about a pregnant tropical fish named Mary Berry thrown in for good measure.
…a bouncy, bubbly stand-up star is born
I can't help but be in awe
If anyone can make an audience crack up about, well, cracking-up, Laura Lexx seems able to
…hilarious …emotional …perfect
…an excellent comedian
…shades of Victoria Wood
This was laugh-hard material, which included well-aimed caustic swipes at pseudo-scientific ideas, urban myths, and the well-meaning or not so well-meaning things people say to someone struggling with mental health and/or conception
…an hour of comedy that is as moving as it is comical …'Trying' is a comedy show that proves a point, fights a stigma, and will have you in fits of laughter
