Andrew Lawrence Live at The Hawth Crawley
Andrew Lawrence announces UK Tour
“The funniest comic on this year’s Fringe? Well, I’ve not seen them all, but Lawrence will take some beating” The Edinburgh Evening News (2012)
Is your life so awful you sometimes wish you could disappear completely and never be found? Then perhaps this is the stand-up show for you. As seen on BBC1’s Live At The Apollo and star of three acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series in his own name, Andrew Lawrence returns with his with his all new stand-up show ‘There Is No Escape’.
“Few people have caught the irritated, misanthropic mood of the moment better than this supreme misfit; the only wonder is that it’s taking Lawrence so long to become a national institution”
Since 2003 Andrew has worked his way up from open spot to headlining every comedy club in the country, subsequently becoming a formidably successful touring act in his own right, selling out venues all across the UK.
“Anyone who gives this spikily inventive performer the time of day will realise they’re in the presence of an A-list talent”
A double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, a Sony Radio Award nominee, twice nominated Best Headline Act at the Chortle Awards, Andrew is an internationally respected comedian and will arrive in Edinburgh immediately following a week of shows at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
“This year the suited and booted miserablist has paced and pitched his woe to near perfection, and is back to the form that first won him an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination”
An act that, with a quietly industrious approach, has well and truly paid his dues and earned the place he now holds at the top table of stand-up comedy in the UK. No easy breaks, just honest talent and hard work.
More Praise for Andrew:
“Lawrence bends around the stage like a gothic, intellectual version of Travis Bickle performing stand-up, but without the calming redemption of extreme violence. There’s a terrifying beauty to his language, as if David Peace were writing about the smashing of a feral comedian’s bitter dreams. Fun for all the family”
“A breathtakingly literate, dazzling performer”
Mail on Sunday
“His almost Victorian blend of rage and good grammar is still a delight”
“His delivery is nothing short of genius… A wordsmith of great delight”
“Top quality, urgent and compulsive work from one of the Fringe’s genuine mavericks”
