Fearless comic Andrew Lawrence and offbeat Newsjack writer Saskia Preston perform brand new material before they hit the Edinburgh Fringe.

Andrew Lawrence: The Happy Accident Tour

As seen on Live at the Apollo and more recently The Outcast Comic on Sky Arts, double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated comedian Andrew Lawrence works up a brand new show, joking about the horrors of parenthood and poking fun at Liberal pretentions. It’ll be funny, distinctive and unapologetically non-PC.

'Andrew Lawrence is superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour' (The Spectator)

‘This is intelligently crafted comedy, in turns nuanced and brutal. It’s fearless. It’s funny. It’s full of really good jokes’ (Broadway Baby)

Saskia Preston: Prestonian

Saskia, writer for BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack, is making a name for herself as an act who delivers up offbeat one liners and observations in a unique and playful style. A finalist in the Max Turner Comedy Award 2013, Funny Women Award 2013 and Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian 2013, Saskia was also shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award 2013 and more recently (2015) she was in the Laughing Horse New Comedian of the Year Final.  

‘Superb gag-writer...one to watch’ (London Is Funny)

‘Interesting, quirky act, alien weirdo with odd observations…very good’ (Chortle)
