Stand Up Comedy: The Comedy Circus (February)

Alhambra Live, Morecambe

The Comedy Circus – World class stand up comedy on your doorstep!

Stephanie Laing:

Stephanie started performing in April 2007 on the Scottish comedy circuit. She quickly established herself as one of the most promising acts of her generation on the circuit and in 2015 appeared as a finalist in the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year competition.

Stephanie is best described as goofy and peculiar. Her comedy is partway between the needy oddness of Maria Bamford and the upbeat affability of Josie Long. Her material is a mix of silliness, filth and unusual observations, underpinned by a disarming honesty which makes her seem charmingly vulnerable.

Now a regular on the circuit Stephanie has also become a stalwart of comedy festivals across the country having appeared at Brighton Fringe, Leicester Comedy Festival, York Comedy Festival, Bath Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival as well as appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe every year since 2010. Not content with just performing in the UK Stephanie has also appeared at UCB in New York & The Laugh Factory in L.A.

Most recently in 2018 Stephanie took her solo show ‘Mad About The Boy’ to the Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth comedy festivals.

Stephanie can currently be seen performing for the likes of The Comedy Store, The Stand, Hilarity Bites, Baby Blue, Alexanders, Mirth Control, The Comedy Cafe, Trapdoor Comedy Clubs, Eminent Banter, Hot Water Comedy Clubs & XS Malarkey.
