Climb aboard the ship for a comedy work-in-progress double-bill from two critically acclaimed comedians.

Tony Law

Tony Law Identifies the elements and as Canadian, Trinidadian, Celt, Anglo-Saxon, Viking, guy, working class, and autodidact. This show is a comedy show and it is original and funnier than all the other shows if you are smart and funny. Otherwise it's not if you are, for example, a dickhead. Otherwise. The best. Tony has appeared on Have I Got News For You, The Alternative Comedy Experience, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
