The Comedy Act Theatre is Back!
C.A.T. Legacy Featured Comedian
From 1985 Le Mar cut her teeth on the comedy circuit, by initially doing open spots and warm-ups at events such as fashion shows and parties within the black community. She later rose to prominence on the emerging black comedy circuit in the 1990s, sharing the stage with established comedians such as Felix Dexter, Curtis Walker, Ishmael Thomas and Leo Chester all members of the BBC comedy series
"The Real McCoy."
Her international popularity earned her the title "The Queen of Black Comedy".
Her reputation took her to the mainstream circuit where she became a regular act at established comedy clubs including Up The Creek, Jongleurs, and The Comedy Store, culminating in Le Mar performing her sell-out one-woman show "Off The Hook" at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, in 2000.
She also gained international acclaim when she performed at the Apollo Theatre, New York, and the Comedy Act Theatre in Los Angeles.
