TV comedian Tony Law is part of a laughter-packed autumn at The Dukes in Lancaster.

The Trinidad-born, Canada-raised comic will go into ‘Nonsense Overdrive’ when he makes his first visit to the theatre on October 5.

Expect a show full of absurd, shout-y and powerful, yet meaningful nonsense which enjoyed a sell-out run at the recent Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Law’s recent TV credits include Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

The whiskered comedian is known for his highly surreal material and delivery, and 1950s Americana style of dress, favouring boots with turned-up jeans and a Viking/explorer style of hair.

Now based in London, he enjoyed a significant breakthrough in 2011 with his first sell-out Edinburgh Festival run and an Amused Moose Laughter Award.

He followed this up in 2012 with another sell-out show, a Chortle Award for Best Breakthrough Act 2012 and a 2012 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination.

Earlier this year, he scooped the Chortle Award for Best Club Comic 2013 as well as the Chortle Best Show Award 2013.

Tickets are priced £12/£10(concessions). To book, ring The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or visit HERE
