Laurence Clark Ed2016

When you have a disability, everyone around you wants to help you to be independent; the trouble is, they’ll often have their own ideas about what that means. Laurence Clark is here to show you that sometimes it’s better to let those concerned make those decisions for themselves; even if you do need someone who can do up your jeans for you. He’s got some good gags, plus a great argument for why he should be the next Harry Potter. Drawing on the funny side of disability (yes, there is one, and it’s OK to laugh), Laurence invites you to chuckle at the things he can’t do, and cheerfully mocks those who think they know best.

Assembly George Square Theatre, until 28 Aug.
