Edinburgh Preview: Sara Barron & Laura Lexx
Sara Barron: For Worse
The ‘reigning queen of New York’s live storytelling scene’ (Jon Ronson) and host of the hit US storytelling show, The Moth, delivers her debut stand-up hour.
Filthy, funny and incisive, Barron skewers her husband, her child, WhatsApp, herself and, notably, a tweenage sex script she wrote way back in 1992.
As heard on The Guilty Feminist and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Contributor to Dave Gorman’s Modern Life is Goodish.

Laura Lexx: Trying
‘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.
