Description

Love comedy? Love queers? Then you'll love this mixed bill of award-winning LGBTQ+ women and non-binary comedians. Described by Sofie Hagen as 'my favourite comedy club in London', The LOL Word is taking the UK by storm with their hilarious, inclusive nights. There's no kicking down (no sexism, transphobia, racism, etc.) but plenty of punching the patriarchy. After sell-out Fringe runs in 2017 and 2018, make sure you grab your pals and get your tickets quick! Previous special guests include Fern Brady, Sarah Keyworth, Kemah Bob, Heidi Regan, Sophie Duker and Jordan Gray.
