- Laugh Out London: Edinburgh Fringe interview: Stuart Laws
Full press release
Following a great festival debut headlining 2011's Two For Two O'clock with a set described by critics as 'impulsive', 'original' and 'one to watch' - London's Stuart Laws returns to the fringe with his first full length show:
The show focuses on 28-year-old Stuart's attempt to embrace the fact that his attempts to appear normal have been all too successful. Can he work together with the audience to work out what turned him into a perpetual "little spoon" or "omega male"?
An energetic, compelling and hilarious master of audience interaction, Stuart's unpredictable performances see him act as ringmaster to the crowd, shaping them into a willing emotional circus and creating a perversely endearing air of comedic chaos.
Stuart started performing as a stand up in 2006 and is now an established regular on the London circuit. He can often be seen on the bill for James Acaster's (Russell Howard's Good News) regular show at The Leicester Square Theatre, compering regularly for Comedy Knights & Laugh Out London and giving talks for PLEB. His online sketch work has found frequent success, with The IT Crowd's Graham Linehan describing his Overactive Solutions as 'hilarious' and the viewcount for his webseries Becoming Batman (wherein Stuart dons the famous suit to appear as a village's answer to the caped crusader) currently exceeding 290,000. In May this year, Stuart raised over £650 for pancreatic cancer by watching YouTube, livestreamed online, continuously for 24 hours with Matt Sandford, Stuart's partner in their occasional double act Apocalypso.
