Award winning stand up comedienne lara A king combines sharp humour, uplifting melodies, lyrical
wordsmithery and very clever silliness to hilariously observe the baffling absurdities of life, love and
the ladies. She sings like an angel and will make you laugh until a little bit of wee comes out.
It’s like Ellen DeGeneres meets k.d lang and they somehow create a love child with John Hegley.
Even though they’re lesbians. Not John Hegley of course. He’s a man.
“A chilled out Victoria Wood...witty, charming and very funny - a real gem.”
“outstanding, side-splittingly funny; relatable comedy at its best”

she'd be chatting at the bar and her banter makes you feel like a trusted friend whose just
made you piss your tenna lady. Again. More Kerry Leigh. No really - MORE for the love of
God." Rachel Morris Cosmopolitan Magazine Sex Therapist & Big Brother
