Tony Law: Absurdity For The Common People (Tony Law/The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2017

Weird is an overused term, but it’s really hard to describe Canadian comedian Tony Law’s stand-up performance without it. He enters the stage in questionable costume (I shan’t give spoilers) and the eccentricity only escalates from there. Law’s style of comedy seems to play on the fictional; he’s a big fan of less than relevant tangents, and a lot of what he says may seem like nonsensical rambling. However, this nearly always comes back to a cleverly devised, if a little absurd, starting point. As long as you’re prepared to embrace the silliness, and could consider yourself enjoying the more eclectic kinds of bizarre entertainment, this multi award-winning comedian should certainly win you over.

The Stand Comedy Club, until 28 Aug.
