TONY LAW: MAXIMUM NONSENSE
A kind of comedy show about the meaning of life. Or not. Bloody award-winning!
This year featuring cliché. Mrtonylaw is a way of doing comedy but is it proper? No. Award winning! Loads of stars!
‘A gloriously virtuoso display of absurdism… Law is a master of the deconstructionist style of comedy’ (Scotsman)
Ludicrous. ‘A stream of joyous nonsense … as clever as it is loud, ridiculous and hilarious … a gem’ (Comedy.co.uk)
and another! ‘Clever and blithely zany…’ (Telegraph).
He’s been on the telly too, including Russell Howard’s Good News, So This Is Christmas, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle and CBBC’s Scoop.
Winner of Amused Moose Laughter Award for his Edinburgh Fringe 2011 show, and Chortle award nominee 2012.
‘Tony Law, the sherpa of stand-up, leads an expedition to undiscovered alpine uplands of laughter’ – Stewart Lee
‘Tony Law takes a highly-enjoyable crap on comedy conventions, and manages to be clever in a way that doesn’t make you want to throttle him’ – Adam Buxton
***** – The Skinny
**** – Fest
**** – The Scotsman
BRIDGET CHRISTIE: WAR DONKEY
What are Tory feminists? How did Hitler choose soups in restaurants? Why isn’t there a Spielberg blockbuster about donkeys, and why did Colonel Gadaffi hate them?
Bridget Christie knows. And will wear stilts.
Baffling stand-up and grotesque manifestations from someone who’s been on Radio 4’s News Quiz, E4’s Cardinal Burns, Sarah Millican’s Support Group and Harry Hill’s Little Internet Show.
‘Avant-garde comedian of prodigious talent’ – Guardian
‘True, beautiful insanity’ – Sunday Times
‘Brilliant political bite’ – Arts Desk
‘Insightful, intelligent, absurd … hits highs of genuine brilliance’ – Chortle.co.uk
