You can rely on Coastal Comedy, the best comedy club in Bournemouth to bring you the best stand-up talent on the comedy circuit and this month is no exception.
Carl started performing stand-up in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour saw him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Newcomer 2007, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs across the UK.
“Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacey anecdotal routines” Sunday Times.
“Donnelly has developed a style that is the antithesis of the loud, sweaty, manic comic so prevalent on the telly and live tours at the moment. This is stand up with valium: near horizontal levels of louche that take the mundane stories of everyday life and turns them into stretches of self deprecating silliness” The Guardian
Carl is supported by comedian, actress and writer Laura Lexx who is a uniquely gleeful performer who indulges her audience in an unrelenting childish attention. After a whirlwind introduction to the London comedy scene which saw her reach the finals of both the Chortle and Paramount student competitions in her first year, Lexx has been building on her early successes with gig dates across London and the UK.
She has a quirky, Somerset spin on the world and is happy to relax with the audience and take any subject from a frank discussion of her struggles with IBS to the televisual preferences of sleeping bags. Yes, sleeping bags. Laura Lexx built up her initial stage confidence as part of an improvised comedy troupe, leaving her with the skill and confidence to build up a quick rapport with the audience.
"Real Comedic Steel" - The Guardian
"One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see" - GQ
