This weekend @spoonsparkle from @lgbtqarts will be heading to L-Fest to report back on some of the exciting events taking place there this weekend. Ahead of the weekend of events Amie Taylor held a brief Q&A with Kerry Leigh, (Comedian) who will be performing at L-Fest this weekend.
AT: Thanks for talking to @lgbtqarts today Kerry. Tell us briefly about your journey in to becoming a comedian – had you always wanted to follow that path, or did it happen along the way?
KL: I’ve always been an attention seeker! I have vivid memories of playing to a small crowd in the junior school playground whilst mimicking the headteacher… Eventually had a real go whilst at Uni in Australia. Loved it, and the rest is history.
AT: What’s been your favourite gig you’ve performed yet to date?
KL: It’s a tie between L Fest, 100s of women laughing is fantastic! Brilliant atmosphere… Also debut of my solo show last year at the Women in Comedy festival so happy that people enjoyed the journey and I got a standing ovation!
AT: What are you most excited about this weekend, at L-Fest?
KL: Tricky one! Making friends, performing solo show and MCing Laughing Cows, dancing, watching bands…
AT: When and where can we see you perform at the Festival?
KL: 2:45pm Green stage Saturday for my solo show: ‘Kerry Leigh Wants to Marry Her Brother’ AND 8:30pm Sunday for Laughing Cows Comedy with a stonking line up including Zoe Lyons.
AT: Tell us in five words what audiences should expect when they come to watch your set:
KL: Fun, warmth, laughter, music, tassels!
AT: How can we keep up to date with your future gigs?
