Best of the Fest: Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh, 2014
Famous for his high-pitched, whiny voice and unnerving face, I saw Andrew Lawrence twice perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the Best of the Fest showcase. Each twenty-minute set saw him take such lengths on stage for portraying a pathetic failure that he was forgiven for his very near-the-knuckle yet brilliantly executed material. Subjects including care homes, pay-day loan companies and feminism were put to the laughter test from the contemptuous rants of the extremely witty comedian.
