- Such Small Portions: Edinburgh fringe 2011: A cup of tea with Lewis Schaffer
Full press release
The fast, furious, fearless, and often frantic UK-based New York comic Lewis Schaffer looks forward after 18 years in stand-up and asks himself: Why isn't he famous?
Kate Copstick of The Scotsman called Lewis Schaffer 'the superstar of free comics. I can't believe I'm laughing but I am. An hour whirling in the comedy vortex created by Schaffer's myriad neuroses is always worth the ticket price and here the show is free.' (20 Comedians to Catch at the Edinburgh Festival 2011). The List said Lewis Schaffer had 'one of the best free comedy shows 2010 and should be more famous.' The Evening Standard wrote that he 'definitely has funny bones' which is what British people like (Americans prefer jokes, which he has, too).
Lewis Schaffer is a Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality nominee and won the Malcolm Hardee Cunning Stunt Award in 2009. He hosts the weekly radio program Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead on Resonance FM - London.
