POSTPONED: Tony Law: Identifies

POSTPONED: Due to circumstances beyond our control, Tony Law has postponed this gig until November 6 2020. We have been contacting ticket holders whose contact details we hold, but if you have a ticket and have not heard from us, please get in touch with The Poly box office so we can issue your credit note or refund.  

 

Multi award-winning comedian, Tony Law returns to The Poly this March with another hour of critically acclaimed, unmissable surreal comedy art.

Tony Law’s 16th show is turning out to be his best yet. Top drawer Tony, for connoisseurs of comedy who have seen it all and are funny in their own bones. Comedian’s comedian’s comedian for the comedy nerd seeking Dadaist nirvana.

Tony Law identifies as a Hominid. Homo Sapiens, Neanderthal, Indo-European horse tribesman, an Englishman, a Canadian, a norn iron man, a Trinidadian and a Tobagonian. A dog, a dog owner, owned by a dog, a surrealist, an absurdist and an artist who is comedy of person. A parent, a thrower, a catcher, a reader and a farmer.

Tony Law is a three-time Chortle Award winner, Amused Moose Best Show winner and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. He has been described as a ‘surreal genuis’ by The Telegraph and ‘impeccable’ by The Times. 

His extensive TV and radio credits include: Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Celebrity Mastermind (BBC One), Celebrity Squares (ITV), Heading Out (BBC Two), The Culture Show (BBC Two), Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe (BBC Two), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central), Zapped (Dave), Tony Law’s Surreal Guide To Surreal Comedy (Radio 4 Extra), Loose Ends and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4).
