Tony Law: Identifies

Tony Law‘At the top of his game’ – Metro.

Multi award-winning comedian Tony Law returns to the stage with his 16th show, Identifies.

Another hour of critically acclaimed, unmissable, surreal comedy art, it’s turning out to be his best yet. Top drawer Tony!

Tony Law identifies as a Hominid. Homo Sapien, Neanderthal, Indo-European horse tribesman, an Englishman, a Canadian, a Norn Iron Man, a Trinidadian and a Tobagonian. A dog, a dog owner, owned by a dog, a surrealist, an absurdist, and an artist who is comedy of person. A parent, a thrower, a catcher, a reader and a farmer.

A masterful storyteller, Identifies see’s the distinctively attired Tony spin between the life of a Russian steam boat captain, early man’s development, and the present day.

Described as a ‘surreal genius’ by The Telegraph and ‘impeccable’ by The Times, Tony is a three-time Chortle Award winner, Amused Moose Best Show winner and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. His previous acclaimed live shows have included Frillemorphesis, Absurdity For The Common People, A Lost Show, and Nonsense Overdrive. He also teamed up with the Weirdos comedy collective for 2017 one-off dystopian ice skating spectacular, Tony Law And Friends In The Battle For Icetopia, at London’s Alexandra Palace.

Tony’s extensive TV and radio credits include: Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Celebrity Mastermind (BBC One – specialist subject, Fighter Aircraft of the Second World War), Celebrity Squares (ITV), Heading Out (BBC Two), Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe (BBC Two), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central), Zapped (Dave), Tony Law’s Surreal Guide To Surreal Comedy (Radio 4 Extra), Loose Ends and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4).

He can also be heard introducing programmes on the recently launched Sky Comedy channel.
