Founded by best mates and rising stars from the world of comedy, The LOL Word serves up a tasty mixed bill of new and established queer women and non-binary talent. It's the antithesis of stand-up shows whose line ups are dominated by a different version of the same man in the same white t-short: The LOL Word dish up incredible talent, with a night that’s simultaneously inclusive and outrageous, smart and silly.
Previous guests at The LOL Word include Suzi Ruffell, Sofie Hagen, Rosie Jones, Sophie Duker, Sarah Keyworth, Fern Brady, Kemah Bob, Catherine Bohart, Jordan Gray and Grace Petrie.
