Lara Ricote is a Mexican-American-Venezuelan stand up comedian and writer whose debut show, GRL/LATNX/DEF, won the Best Newcomer Award at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The year before that, she won the 2021 Funny Stage Women Award. 

Since starting to work in the UK in 2021, she’s been on Mel Giedroyc’s Unforgivable, Question Team, QI, Alan Davies' As Of Yet Untitled, Comedy Central Live, World’s Most Dangerous Roads and Live at the Apollo. She has performed all over the UK, Europe and Argentina. She performs in both Spanish and in English.

 

She’s currently based in Amsterdam, NL where she produces/performs comedy. There, she’s opened for Maria Bamford and Hannah Gadsby. 

 

The Guardian describes her as a “razor-sharp goofball,” and her debut show as a “riotously inventive show that blurs notions of race, gender and disability.”

CHORTLE

★ ★ ★ ★ "Lara Ricote’s exhilarating hour of dark humour is a pleasure to watch."

TIME OUT

★ ★ ★ ★ "Lara Ricote is a ball of energy that manages to brighten even the dark and sticky room that is The Hive nightclub. But don’t let that fool you into thinking she’s all sweetness and light: Ricote has a wicked dark streak that often befits the room she’s performing in."

THE SKINNY

★ ★ ★ ★ "Ricote is unquestionably a star. "
