COMEDY AT THE WATERMILL


 

Sat 06 Apr 2024

Join us for another evening of Comedy at the Watermill with Laura Lexx, James Ellis, Joseph Emslie, and hosted by Jeremy O'Donnell!

Headlined by the brilliant Laura Lexx. 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. 

Opening the show is award-winning comedian James Ellis, a rising star in the UK comedy scene. His sharp observational humour and clever punchlines have won him rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. James’ comedy is rooted in everyday life, and he has a knack for finding the funny in the mundane. A gifted writer, his jokes are well-crafted and delivered with precision. In 2021, James was named South Coast Comedian of the Year, and was a regional finalist for the BBC New Comedy Award. He is currently on tour supporting Angela Barnes on her “Hot Mess” Tour.

With up-and-coming comic and star of Channel 4’s The Paddock, Joseph Emslie! His easy conversational manner, anecdotal, and sometimes self-deprecating, style of comedy has helped secure him some early critical acclaim by taking the runner up place in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2021.

Hosted by Jeremy O’Donnell.
