Edinburgh Preview: Sara Barron & Laura Lexx
When Sara Barron was twelve years old she wrote a sixty four page play. Sixty of those pages were, in effect a porno, which is to say: there exists in this world a porno script written by an accidental, feminist twelve year-old *auteur*.
As it happens, Sara’s not twelve anymore. She’s thirty eight. And through her own mix of stand up and storytelling, she’s ready – FINALLY – to get her play up on its filthy little feet.
‘The reigning queen of New York’s live storytelling scene’ Jon Ronson
‘Barron is, dare we say it, as funny as David Sedaris. When you aren’t squirming, you’re laughing out loud’ Los Angeles Times
‘Rib-tickling… relentlessly self-deprecating’ Chicago Sun Times
‘Barron makes for great company’ Entertainment Weekly Magazine
‘Darkly humorous; smart; acerbic’ Bust Magazine
‘One can only hope there’s some life altering catastrophe around the corner for Lexx’ Broadway Baby 2015
Luckily, the award-winning comedian with ‘superb material, brilliant delivery and irresistible personality’ (★★★★ TV Bomb), has had a breakdown and 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 4Extra.
