We are thrilled to welcome Britain's darling gimp, Laurence Clark! If you don't know him yet, you gotta check out the comic filmmaker critics call:

...quick-witted and sharp comedian - grab a ticket for his great show which will have you well and truly rolling with laughter." Broadway Baby 19/8/2008

"Remarkably funny... self-depreciating yet self-assured... a damn fine comedian." Fest 17/8/2008

"Tremendously cheeky... a genuine pleasure to spend time with... a bloody great hour of comedy" National Student 10/8/2008
 
"Laugh? I nearly fell out of my chair... a wonderfully warped wit that's definitely worth a hour of your time."

Biography of the artist:

"Laurence spent years studying for a PhD which he now feels is pretty useless since he turned to comedy!

Laurence has cerebral palsy and his outlook on life as a disabled person very much shapes his comedy. His first show, The All-Star Charity Show, won critical acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe in 2003. The show was named Critics' Choice in The Times and Laurence was described as a "powerful comedy voice" and "stunningly hard-hitting" by critic Kate Copstick in The Scotman's round-up of the best of the fringe.

Subsequent shows he has taken to Edinburgh Fringe include The Jim Davidson Guide to Equality, where Laurence responded to 'comic' Jim Davidson cancelling a show because wheelchair users were in his audience by doing a comedy show which he vowed to cancel if Jim turned up in his audience! In Jim Fixed It for Me he tried to come to terms with having appeared on Jim'll Fix It as a child and not getting a Jim’ll Fix It badge. His next show, 12% Evil took its title from the many famous villains who were portrayed as disabled in order to make them seem sinister and evil; e.g, Richard III, Long John Silver, Captain Hook, Dr Strangelove, various Bond baddies and of course... Heather Mills-McCartney!

Finally his last controversial show, Spastic Fantastic followed Laurence's attempts to reclaim 'spastic' as someone with cerebral palsy through stand-up comedy and hidden camera stunts."
