IN an average lifetime you'll spend two years shopping, two weeks kissing and 18 months looking for lost things.

You'll also spend quite a while eating, queuing, crying and Googling yourself, and somehow comedian Alex Horne is going to squeeze all those things into one show, which he has entitled Seven Years In The Bathroom.

The new show, in which he aims to recreate your entire life, is coming to Exeter Corn Exchange on Friday, February 8, and is part of the city's Laugh Out Loud Festival.

Packed with an impressive line-up of acts, performers at the feastival so far have included Chortle Comedy Award nominees Peacock and Gamble.

And top names yet to perform include spontaneous comedian David Trent at Exeter Phoenix on Saturday, January 26, and Daniel Simonsen from Russell Howard's Good News and the Simon Amstell tour at The Bike Shed Theatre on Sunday, January 27.

Other highlights include Tony Law at Exeter Phoenix on Thursday, January 31, and Hal Cruttenden whose witty and charming comedy has seen him supporting Rob Brydon, Sean Lock, and Omid Djalili on their nationwide tours. He will perform his show at Exeter Phoenix on Sunday, February 10.

The festival also marks the return of the popular Exeter Comedy Club at its usual home of Exeter Corn Exchange.

The line-up on Friday, February 1, is made up of Andrew Ryan, Robin Morgan and Rich Morton.

The regular sell-out shows always feature four of the top stand-up performers on the national circuit in cabaret.

Other comedy nights during the festival include Raw Comedy at the Barnfield Theatre on Saturday, February 2, and Open Mic Night at the Exeter Phoenix Cafe Bar on Thursday, February 7.
