Laura Lexx and the Evil Gary Barlow

Eyre-Leigh Doors

Welcome to the Eyre-Leigh Doors community! Here’s what’s in your show today: Final episode in the series! It was recorded at the Brighton Fringe at Sweet Venues, definitely not in a toilet. Apologies that it does sound a little toilety. A very funny, sweet, thoughtful episode nonetheless and well worth tuning your ears into. Of course, Jurgen Klopp features (read Laura’s book, please do!) and, quite frankly, Laura disgraces herself in a way that only she could (well, and Louise. It’s based on a story from Louise’s life) Laura turns down the chance to live in a haunted house with the ghost of a GP’s receptionist. Not surprising, really. More surprising, though, she shuns a lengthy produce-based #ramblechat with much-loved podcaster Adam Buxton AND the chance to be in a double act with Jennifer Aniston. But why? And how? And what’s going on with Gary Barlow and the football? She explains her spat with Piers Morgan and why she doesn’t respect him. It’s not just because he has a ‘slap me’ face, which surprised Louise no end. No surprises whom she chooses to spend time with in another dimension, but some disappointment when she learns she could be hanging out with Danny DeVito if she’d held on a bit longer. Still, we have the joy of the newest detective agency, Stumpy and Stumpy, a crime-fighting duo with the biggest of brains (and the shortest of legs) But that’s the nature of the game… Have a lovely time (enjoy!) Who’s our guest and how can you reach them on the socials? Laura Lexx Find out more at : https://www.lauralexx.co.uk/Interact with her on Social Media: Twitter Instagram FacebookNational Treasures Podcast with Will Duggan  Buy her wonderful book, Klopp Actually, direct from Laura!

Laura Lexx - History, Hilarity, and Klopp Actually

Calm Down Dear

Yup, another fortnight's passed and we're as confused as everyone else about it. Turns out we have been quite busy though, with conflabs over the astonishing Promising Young Woman, Twitter writing advice, International Women's Day and the widespread response to Meghan's (and Harry's, it needs to be said) interview, chats about Ali Smith's 'Summer' and Olga Tokarczuk's 'Drive Your Plow Over The Bones Of The Dead' all on the cards, plus of course, your usual dose of insanity/inanity. Our guest this week though really steals the show; you might know Laura Lexx as the brilliant comedian gracing screens on Mock The Week and Live At The Apollo, or maybe were one of the legions hooked on her madcap Twitter thread about her imaginary relationship with Jurgen Klopp - maybe you even got intrigued at the subsequent two-book deal she won off the back of that (that's right, you can get Klopp soft-porn in hard-copy now - keep it clean - while we await her debut novel). She's phenomenally intelligent and candid, and opens up about not only her journey into stand-up and her love of history, but her climate anxiety and why that led to her decision not to have biological children. We think she's glorious, and reckon you will too. Plus, you know, she can knit a mean dinosaur.As always if you could subscribe and tell your friends about us that would mean the world, as this is the FINAL episode of Season 2! We will be back with a sneaky extra special bonus ep in two weeks time though before sleeping for a thousand years and returning (in six weeks) for a bright and spangly Season 3. The more for the big return (and the incredible guests we have lined up), the better! We always love to hear from you too.

Book Club: Klopp Actually, Laura Lexx

Football Ramble Presents

Ever wondered what it'd be like to live with Jürgen Klopp? Well, our guest on today's episode of the Book Club turned a Twitter thread on just such a thought into a book: it's Laura Lexx, comedian and author of Klopp Actually: (Imaginary) Life with Football's Most Sensible Heartthrob! What started as a few hundred characters on Twitter has grown into a heartfelt book about dealing with life's anxieties and wrestling with the relationships we treasure most. Laura's writing explores these themes through her imaginary life with Jürgen, all while cramming in plenty of filthy laughs - and even the odd football fans' quip - along the way.What book should we read next?
