Reviews from Melbourne & Perth comedy festivals, April/May 2015:

 

“FOUR STARS” The Age

 

“4.5 STARS” - The West Australian

 

“4.5 STARS  An utter joy to watch.” - Beat Magazine

 

“4 STARS. An all-round outstanding performer,

and his tales and one-liners are hilarious.

A fun and fast hour of comedy.” TheMusic

 

“One of the most effortlessly enjoyable shows of the festival.

There’s no escaping that fact.” - CHORTLE (UK)

 

“The Escapist is as much in the storytelling genre as it is stand-up. The laughs come just as often and the humour is just as sharp but Lawrence Leung’s one-night only performance felt like a playful odyssey rather than a series of punchlines strung together with paper-thin segues.”

- West Australian

 

“He is a superb and ingenuous raconteur.”

- Australian Stage

 

“The Escapist is a perfectly curated performance…

Leung’s self-awareness and modesty makes for a stand up performance

that is authentic and easily relatable, at the same time as retaining some edginess.

Leung uses the dying art of story telling to divulge his own life experiences

in a way that is both heartwarming and scintillating.”

- APHRAMAG.COM

 

 

We’re looking at other cities at the moment and hope to have some more dates to announce shortly.

Part-Time Detective Agency heads to the Perth Comedy Festival

 

LAWRENCE LEUNG’S PART-TIME DETECTIVE AGENCY

 

Lawrence wants to be like Sherlock.

All he needs is a case to solve, a loyal assistant and a nemesis.

Apply within.

 

Taking cues from the world’s greatest sleuth, Lawrence battles wits, exposes lies and uncovers hidden truths.

Can anyone become a great detective or is he just deceiving himself?
