Andrew Lawrence

‘One of the greatest as-yet undiscovered talents on the circuit' - Daily Mirror

‘Evil elegance’ - Time Out

The buzz about comedy’s best-kept-secret is fast making Andrew Lawrence a cult classic, with his 2007 Edinburgh Fringe show – ‘Social Leprosy for Beginners & Improvers’ – gaining him a nomination at the prestigious If.Comeddies awards.

Andrew has received rave recognition in all the key new act competitions and is now a regular favourite on the comedy circuit, gigging at all the major clubs across the country and building a base of discerning fans addicted to the bleakly dark comic world he creates. Having completed a sell-out run in 2006, Andrew will return to the prestigious Soho Theatre in February to perform his If.Comeddie nominated 2007 Edinburgh show.

Boasting a fiery crown of red hair and a deep, demonic voice, Lawrence’s fiendish persona is in complete allegiance with his material; it will shock you both in terms of content, and in terms of how much you will laugh. With his flawless timing and delivery he can induce tears of laughter from audience members almost against their will.

' Lawrence is so thorough in assuming hischaacter, that he often comes across as a young man who really does kill the thing he lovesthen feasts on the gooeyness inside, singing a tune about it as some kind of teible yet touchingly inevitable caharsis.
