LIVE SHOW! LONDON & AUSTRALIAN TOUR DATES

Lawrence + Safran co-host breakfast radio

John Safran is filling in for regular TripleJ breakfast upstarts Tom & Alex next week (20-25 June 2011). When Lawrence was interviewed on “Sunday Night Safran with Father Bob” (TripleJ), John Safran asked Lawrence to be his co-pilot on breakfast radio for one of the mornings.

We promise the finest awkward banter you will ever hear as Leung + Safran co-host Triple J Breakfast together.

 

One morning only.

Monday 20th June 2011 from 6am-9am Triple J.

Lawrence Leung Wants a Jetpack

LAWRENCE LEUNG WANTS A JETPACK

is Lawrence’s LIVE stand-up comedy show (60min) touring in 2011.

 

Lawrence Leung has a dream… A dream that one day, all humankind can stand side-by-side (but not too close to each other’s jet turbines) and take off into the skies. Programs like Beyond 2000 told us that by now we’d all be flying in jetpacks, but much like their opening titles where a robot nanny pushes a child on a swing, it’s all disappointment and rusty pipe-dreams.

 

In his latest comedic venture, Lawrence explores the dizzying heights of

obsession, daydreams, backyard MacGyvers, falling and picking oneself up again. In the process, he discovers that he’s not the only one keeping the dream of single-person jet propulsion aeronautics alive.

 

The new show from the beardy guy from Lawrence Learns to Breakdance (The Age Critics’ Award 2007), ABC TV’s Choose Your Own Adventure and new series Unbelievable.
