‘An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting’ by Laurence Clark
Comedian Laurence Clark starred in BBC1’s documentary 'We Won’t Drop the Baby', following his family’s journey as they welcomed their second child, with the show recently being uploaded to YouTube. The response it received worldwide was at times inspirational and uplifting – at others, derogatory and incredibly personal. Laurence’s show explores these reactions, and questions his role as a father with cerebral palsy – with the help of his two young sons, who undoubtedly steal the limelight with their charming and innocent view of their parents.
“Wickedly funny” – ★★★★★ Herald “Intelligent and incredibly mischievous” – ★★★★ Metro “Close to the bone and very funny” – ★★★★ Scotsman "his theme packs a huge emotional punch.. By that extravagant finale you’ll be clapping, singing, laughing, cheering.. maybe even bawling like a baby" Fest Mag “The laughs come regularly in a continual flow of chuckles and guffaws.. in a tightly-scripted Fringe affair that balances light-hearted banter with real issues” The List “an excellent hour, jam-packed with laughs and a delight to watch” ★★★★★One 4 Review “Clark’s humour is warm & mischievous & although, at times, close to the bone.. it’s delivered in a way that never offends.. Clark is a fighter & a witty pragmatist to boot.. made me laugh and smile from beginning to end” ★★★★Broadway Baby “a funny hour of family friendly comedy.. a refreshing tonic to perk you up” ★★★★★Festival Review
