Watch Stuart Laws: So Preoccupied…
….with Whether or Not He Could, That He Didn’t Stop To Think Whether He Should (1 Hr show).
If you wear a gilet (or even if you don’t), you’ll enjoy this surreal and clever performance about Stuart’s Summer of 2001 – featuring breweries, paper rounds and psychopaths. Oh, and of course – puffins.
Laws started doing stand-up in 2006 and his first show Two For Two O’clock had it’s Edinburgh debut in 2011. Following its’ positive reception, he returned to the festival in 2012 with his 1 hour show Stuart Laws Absolutely Will Not Stop, Ever, Until You Are Dead which centered around his attempt to ‘embrace the fact that his attempts to appear normal have been all too successful’.
Now a successful and established regular on the London circuit, he has performed at The Leicester Square Theatre, is a regular MC at Laugh Out Loud London and Pulp Comedy and he performs at Mach and ARG Comedy Festivals every year, as well as regularly supporting James Acaster.
Laws regularly writes for The Huffington Post, and has appeared on and written for BBC Radio 4. His play ‘The Journey’ will debut at The Edinburgh Fringe at The Pleasance this year. The play is a romantic comedy about a break up set on a space ship and starring Will Brown and Gabby Best. The play explores how ‘female characters are underserved in the arts and female arts exploited, touching upon themes which feel particularly pertinent in the wake of recent revelations”. His next stand up show Stuart Law Stops will run at The Soho Theatre in London in June 2018. In the show Stuart wants to tell the tale of how he met the love of his life, but gets side-tracked with tales of ‘holidays with spiders…women in refrigerators and Idris Elba’.
He once raised £650 for Pancreatic Cancer Research by watching YouTube continuously for 24 hours with his Apocolypso partner, Matt Sandford.
