How did Lewis Schaffer, a sharp-suited wisecracking New Yorker, get to be described as “the new king of Soho”? That’s Soho in London.
Pronounced ‘Lewis Shay-fer’, Lewis Schaffer was one of the top comics in the home of stand up comedy, New York City. A short visit to London in 2000 went very wrong as love and marriage led to heartache in the UK. Now trapped in Nunhead, a suburb of Peckham, Lewis Schaffer is not making the best of a bad situation. But then again, he never has.
‘‘Lewis Schaffer has a unique style” says Time Out New York.
“He can insult you and love you in the same sentence.” The New York Post reported that he “makes fun of others at his own expense.” Most comics try to push boundaries but Lewis Schaffer pulls the rug out from under you.
“Lewis Schaffer is Free until Famous” is the longest-running solo comedy show in London. And he's taken his show on the road for 2013 to theatres across the UK.
He has been recommended by The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, Time Out London, Time Out New York, The New York Post, The Scotsman, The London Evening Standard and many other publications and websites.
“I love Lewis Schaffer! I love his pugnacious, in-your-face delivery. His total indifference to all things British is brilliant!” Kate Copstick, ITV & The Scotsman
