Sophie Duker is one of the rising stars of stand-up. Her Edinburgh Fringe Show 2019, Venus, saw her nominated for the Best Newcomer award, gain and five star reviews and won her a run at Soho Theatre.
Since being shortlisted for the Funny Women award in 2015, she has appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order. She can also be seen on Channel 4 in Riot Girls, BBC Three in Quickies and on Comedy Central.
“Laugh-out loud funny” – The Telegraph.
“A sparky proposition” – The Independent.
‘The Poster Girl For Awkward’, Eleanor Morton, returns to Laugh Out London after her most recent Fringe show, ‘Post-Morton’ received rave reviews in Edinburgh for its sharp and witty takes on millennial life and mental health.
“A thoroughly enjoyable hour of accomplished and skillful stand-up” – The Skinny
“Charmingly Whimsical” – The Guardian
“Eleanor Morton is a delight – clever, inventive and super funny” – Josie Long
JOHNNY WHITE REALLY-REALLY
Hailed by The Guardian as “one of the Best New Comics at The Fringe” and by Chortle as, Johnny White Really-Really is totally unlike anyone else. Johnny’s bizarre and hilarious stories have won him recognition as a firm favourite amongst fringe audiences.
“Out of the modest and the unexceptional, some highly creative comedy emerges, as minor incidents spiral into surreal stories or complex, real reminiscences.” ★★★★ Chortle
Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee 2018 and winner of E4’s Coach Trip 2019.
A big favourite of ours who’s debut hour “Dark Horse” was one of the smash hits of the Fringe in 2018 and was followed up by her second superb hour, ‘Pacific’ in 2019. A star today – a huge one tomorrow!
“She’s completely at ease and control on stage… heartwarming yet not cloying, and political powerful yet not preachy, not to mention extremely funny.” – ★★★★ 1/2 Chortle
“Killer routines aplenty” – ★★★★ The List
“Powerful, poignant and achingly funny stuff” – ★★★★★ The Herald
★★★★ The Times
PLUS a SPECIAL GUEST!
