Laura Lexx: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview

Laura Lexx talks sperm resistant wombs and seeing if we’re okay.

Hello. How are you today?

Banging, mate. How are you? [Ace – Ed]

At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?

I notice you’ve ignored me asking how you are. I hope you’re ok, it’s not good to keep stuff bottle up.

The show is pretty much on target for the blurb… one of the joys of producing a show every two years means I have a lot of time to decide what’s on my mind well before brochure deadlines. This show has been a long time coming and there was no way I would bottle it.

Honestly though, are you ok? [I really don’t know – Ed]

Who are you sharing a flat with and how will you help each other survive the month?

Why, do you need somewhere to stay? Is that why you’re avoiding the questions? Babe, seriously – always just ask. I’m living with The Noise Next Door and we intend to play a lot of nerdy card games and probably go to the zoo.

You’re very welcome to come. [Thanks. On the way! – Ed]

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

Yeah, loads, why, would you like to come? Do you not know many people here?

That’s ok; come with me to see Abigoliah Schamaun and Garrett Millerick and loads of other ace people.

Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?

City Cafe breakfast. It’s all I think about.

The Fringe’s tagline this year is ‘Into The Unknown’. What do people not know about you?

I’ve been trying to get pregnant for 18 months but seem to have a sperm resistant womb. It’s rubbish.

Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.

I think you’re only doing interviews with people to cover the fact you’re desperately lonely and prefer to be asking questions than answering them. You need help.
