Laurence Clark's recent BBC1 documentary, We Won't Drop The Baby , was watched by over 1.5 million people. With regular TV and radio appearances comedian, presenter and comedy writer Laurence Clark has also topped Shortlist magazine’s Britain's Ten Funniest New Comedians.

Laurence boasts 21 4-star reviews and 5 5-star reviews and has a wealth of press accolades from his live shows including “makes Chris Morris look lightweight. Dangerously funny." The Scotsman

Laurence has presented an authored feature on BBC1's Newsnight, and appears on a number of TV and radio shows on all the major channels, as a comedian, actor, talking head and social commentator.

His highly acclaimed live shows include Spastic Fantastic, which received great accolades, as, through charm and great comedy writing, live performance and VT, Laurence shows us amazing insight into the world through his eyes. The All-Star Charity Show won critical acclaim and was Critics' Choice in The Times. In The Jim Davidson Guide to Equality, Laurence responded to Jim Davidson - who cancelled a show because wheelchair users were in his audience - by doing a comedy show which he vowed to cancel if Jim turned up in his audience. The showJim Fixed It for Me shows Laurence coming to terms with having appeared on Jim’ll Fix It as a child but never getting his Jim’ll Fix It badge. And in 12% Evil he tracks the many famous villains portrayed as disabled in order to make them seem sinister and evil- Richard III, Long John Silver, Captain Hook, Dr Strangelove, various Bond baddies and of course… Heather Mills-McCartney!

Laurence Clark's most recent show, Health Hazard enjoyed an 18 date tour.

Laurence is hugely in demand for his corporate work and performs internationally including the US and Australia.
