Laurence Clark: Inspired

Beyond Compere presents Laurence Clark: Inspired

Laurence Clark is an internationally-acclaimed comedian, presenter, writer and actor who happens to have cerebral palsy. His observational, political stand-up comedy and hidden camera footage demonstrate the endearing naivety and ridiculousness of human behaviour by seeing the world through his eyes with humour and warmth. Having just completed another successful national tour, Laurence comes to Embrace with a preview of his new show prior to taking it to Edinburgh. He and his wife were the subject of a recent major BBC1 documentary, We Won't Drop the Baby (28 March 2012), which showed them juggling their daily lives around caring for their two sons.

Laurence is an amazing comedian whose own inimitable style has brought him 25 4-star (****) and 7 5-star (*****) reviews. Shortlist magazine’s Funniest New Comedian, Laurence has written 5 highly-acclaimed solo shows, is a regular writer for BBC Ouch! and performs and writes sketches for comedy group Abnormally Funny People, resident at London’s Soho Theatre.

Other TV appearances include as a talking head in the BBC2 documentary Are You Having A Laugh?, The Shooting Party (C4), I’m With Stupid (BBC3), Newsnight (BBC2) and The London Programme (ITV).

‘Inspired’ is the only comedy show commissioned for the London 2012 Festival.
