and last but not lease OUR RESIDENT MC KERRY LEIGH
Kerry Leigh is FUNNY. She writes all her own comedy material and does all her own washing. She has hosted Laughing Cows Comedy for ages (since 2004) through several pregnancies, one marriage, and two anaphylactic shocks. “What disarms you is her honesty and her humility. She's as relaxed on stage as you imagine she'd be chatting at the bar and her banter makes you feel like a trusted friend whose just made you piss your tenna lady. Again. More Kerry Leigh. No really - MORE for the love of God." Rachel Morris Cosmopolitan Magazine Sex Therapist & Big Brother Psychotherapist
