Andrew Lawrence -
Soul-Crushing Vicissitudes Of Fortune!
25 March - 18 April
Andrew Lawrence spends the first ten minutes of his Sunday evening show complaining - about the lack of an audience, about the lack of internationals nominated for awards at the festival, and about how the audience isn't reacting in the way he would like. His observations on his girlfriend, neighbours, and others he deals with are dark and bitter, often announced as if he's calling a horse race. Unfortunately, he spends far too much time talking about the downsides of being a comic, something the audience can't relate to. Midway through the set Lawrence runs through a list of awards he has won. If his sets continue in the way this one did, he won't be adding any more awards to the trophy cabinet.
