Stantonbury Theatre and Rangatainment Comedy are proud to present….
Stantonbury Stand-Up Comedy Night!
With Laura Lexx, Stephen Carlin, Elaine Fellows and hosted by Matthew McAloone!
Headlined by the brilliant Laura Lexx. Regional comedian, author and actor Laura is vivacious, impassioned, intelligent and one of the best MCs/Headliners on the comedy scene. Born and bred in the home county of Somerset, Laura’s comfy demeanour, warmth and energy delightfully juxtapose her biting wit, sharp tongue and brutal audience take downs, which just can’t stop going viral.
Following her Live at The Apollo (BBC) debut Laura received an unprecedented reaction both from the live crowd and audiences at home, which lead to her appearing in shows such as Mock The Week (BBC), Hypothetical (Dave) and Celebrity Mastermind (BBC) to name a few. Laura is the creator of multiple podcast formats, her current being Lexx Education where, taught by her scientist younger brother, Laura tries to get her head around the GCSE science syllabus with hilarious results! With unrivalled tenacity, intelligence and an infectiously vibrant attitude to life, Laura Lexx is the name on everyone’s lips.
Opening the show is the hilarious Stephen Carlin! Stephen is a hilarious Scottish comedian who has received great critical acclaim, accolades and a growing fanbase with his original and insightful writing style and accomplished delivery. He is a very enigmatic act, using a unique pattern of delivery to amuse the audience with very unexpected and off the wall references. From his sartorial elegance to his in-depth and hilarious knowledge of International snooker, Carlin’s performance takes the audience into the mind of a passionate obsessive. This man is well on his way to becoming Scotland’s newest addition to its history of brilliant comedians. All skilfully delivered in his deadpan Scottish brogue. Stephen has supported Tom Stade, Stewart Lee, Stephen Merchant and Felix Dexter on their national tours. He also starred on Stewart Lee’s The Alternative Comedy Experience on Comedy Central.
With up-and-coming comic Elaine Fellows. One of the brightest new comics on the circuit. Originally from Southport but now living in Brighton, she’s bringing her Northern nonsense to the South.
Hosted by Northern Irish comic and BBC Comedy Award finalist, Matthew McAloone!
