Show Info

Laura Lexx is an award-winning comedian, actor and writer who lives in Brighton. She has a real husband, but in these uncertain times we all need a coping mechanism. And hers was imagining life married to the sensible, no-nonsense Jürgen Klopp. She thinks maybe he has something to do with football?

Inspired by a tweet that went viral, Klopp Actually: (Imaginary) Life With Football’s Most Sensible Heartthrob is a deeply silly diary of her entirely fictional life with everyone’s favourite baseball-cap-wearing, bespectacled German football manager.

To be interviewed by Emma Kennedy, author of 11 books – one of which was turned into the BBC comedy The Kennedys – as well as countless comedy, children’s, animation and drama scripts for the screen and stage.
