Laurence Clark

Laurence Clark is an internationally-acclaimed comedian, screenwriter, playwright and actor who has cerebral palsy. He has performed everywhere from 10 Downing Street to a double-decker bus touring Sheffield. His observational, political stand-up, and filmed stunts, demonstrate the endearing naivety and ridiculousness of human behaviour by seeing the world through his eyes - with humour and warmth.


About Laurence Clark

With over twelve years’ experience in hosting and performing at corporate events, Laurence is in high demand on the conference circuit. Whether it’s stand-up comedy, a keynote speech, a witty talk after lunch or dinner, facilitating a workshop, or hosting an event, Laurence has the ability to connect and communicate with a wide and diverse range of audiences.

With television appearances on BBC, ITV and Channel 4, Laurence was the subject of major BBC1 documentary ‘We Won’t Drop the Baby’, been a presenter for BBC Newsnight and has recently appeared on The Wright Stuff and The One Show. He was awarded Shortlist magazine’s Funniest New Comedian and has been a finalist in the AmusedMoose Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

His solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe have gained him a plethora of four and five star reviews and his solo show An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting went on to complete a huge nationwide Tour.

Laurence is also a prolific writer. In the summer of 2018 he was on the writing team for forthcoming episodes of ITV’s Coronation Street. His first play, ‘Cured’ about a group of young disabled people who rebel whilst on a pilgrimage to Lourdes, won an Unlimited commission and is being developed as a full production by Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre.

In 2022, Laurence’s first comedy pilot Perfect starring George Robinson was aired on Dave, a brand new comedy with an all-disabled cast.

In 2021 Laurence won one of the coveted places on the Channel 4 Drama Screenwriting course, 4Screenwriting. An invaluable course within the industry, it reflects the channel’s commitment to finding and nurturing new voices and is a hothouse for writers to discover their own paths to making great television.

"Both the staff and the student feedback was fantastic … they really loved it. Laurence made an impression on a number of levels – first and foremost as just a funny guy but also, for these young students, a challenge to their perceptions of disability."

Ashton 6th Form College

"It was a brilliant 20 minutes and the feedback has been great – a lot of people have said it was their favourite part of the programme."

Newham Coalition of Disabled People

"Many thanks for coming up to our festival and for doing such a great job."

Equality and Human Rights Commission

"We’ve only had positive feedback from Laurence’s performance and it was certainly a great way to end the conference. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate recommending Laurence to colleagues for any events they might be organising."
