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.

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.
