'Antidote' (Fest), 'Demented genius' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Meandering inventiveness' (Skinny). 'He talks bollocks, basically' (Comedy.co.uk).

Full Press Release

Tony Law is widely regarded by the comedy industry as one of the best comics on the circuit. This year he is bringing his own special brand of funny to the Fringe by asking the question we've probably all asked ourselves at some point. Namely; Is Tony Law a way of doing comedy?

Mixing delightful, flawless twaddle, with some genuinely insightful forays into what it is that makes comedy comedy (or anti-comedy), Tony Law (that's Mr Tony Law to you) presents a standuppy, sketchy, impro-ey, arty little comedy show for people who are already funny.

The show is shaping up like art. Confusing art. But art to do with comedy.

Come and see for yourself.
