Founded by best mates and rising stars, The LOL Word serves up a tasty mixed bill of new and established queer women and non-binary comedy talent. The LOL Word is the antithesis to the predominantly straight state of the comedy world: they 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.
