JOSIE LAWRENCE

What Does the Title Matter Anyway? Udderbelly, Bristo Square, Edinburgh, 2014
The Comedy Store Players 30th Birthday Show: The Comedy Store, London, 2015 

The Channel 4 television series Whose Line Is It Anyway? is widely and fondly remembered for its brilliant improvisational cast who each week created stories from words given by the studio audience.  The compere Clive Anderson hosted a live version which for legal reasons had to change its name in 2014 at the Edinburgh Fringe and one of the stars was Josie Lawrence.  Always beaming with joy on stage, Lawrence helped to produce a different show every night revealing a skilful mind with lighting reactions.

I saw Lawrence again in 2015 at the Comedy Store Players 30th Birthday Show in London where she gave an immaculate performance and was the one whom the others turn to bail them out of a sticky spot. An absolute stalwart and Comedy Store Player regular, Lawrence was never lost for noises, lyrics or words and proved what a genuine talent the funny woman is.
