Acclaimed stand-up (and the UK's foremost gilet apologist) Stuart Laws reflects on the day his life changed forever when he risked everything in a Vegas poker tournament. A show about making difficult decisions, choosing different paths and gettin' jiggy wit' it. Stuart has appeared on BBC Radio 4, produced James Acaster's Netflix specials and his live reporting of a dirty plates war became one of the most talked about Twitter threads of the year. 'You'll struggle to find a comedian with a better jokes per minute rate... A one-man episode of Arrested Development' **** (Fest).
Stuart Laws has flipped the script. He's decided to judge the audience instead of vice versa. It's hard to explain anything more about the overall narrative of the show without ruining the ambitious challenge that he has set himself. Laws has such a great way with language that there are regularly jokes hidden within other jokes - often leading to laughter rippling around the venue as the various pennies drop. You'll be hard pushed to find many other lunchtime shows with such consistent laughs and such a satisfying conclusion.
