Last year was a leap forward for Lexx, who has always been an assured stand-up but managed to turn it up a level with lovely. This year she’s taking on dinosaurs, stonehenge and turning into your mother as her comedy continues to evolve.
Hello. How are you today?
Banging, thanks mate.
Are you ready for another month of Edinburgh Fringe action?
No. I will be ready at approximately 2:19 on August 4th and not a moment sooner.
At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?
Er, I’m confident I mentioned it was stand up comedy in the blurb, so that is still true.
What are your tips for getting people to see your show?
I’ve made the tickets really, really cheap. I mean, you can literally walk in for nothing.
Who are you sharing a flat with this festival and how will you help each other survive the month?
My husband and the rest of his travelling band of jongleurs aka The Noise Next Door. I won’t go into details of ways my husband and I make each other feel better because it’s gross and sticky. With the others is much more about subtly ignoring anything that isn’t direct eye contact and conversation.
Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?
I’m dying to get stuck into Comedians Cinema Club this year.
Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?
City Restaurant Maxi Breakfast. It makes me understand smoking.
Salt and sauce on your chips?
Sure, if you’re buying.
Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.
