Laurence Clark: An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting

Audio described in-house. This performance is part of the festival DadaFest International, running from 1 November until 8 December.

Growing up Laurence never saw dads with cerebral palsy; which made him think he’d never be a parent himself. Besides, the only thing he’d ever managed to look after was a cactus, and even that died from lack of water.

But then his future wife says he’d better be prepared for the fact she wants babies…which is a pretty strong opening line for a first date! What follows is the hilarious and heart-warming story of two people with cerebral palsy traversing the ups and downs of parenthood.

If Laurence is an irresponsible father then it’s nothing to do with being disabled! It’s probably more to do with balancing his wife’s crutches on his son’s baby walker to make him look like a Dalek!

Laurence starred in BBC1’s documentary We Won’t Drop the Baby and recently featured on The One Show, The Wright Stuff and BBC 5Live.  He’s been Shortlist’s Funniest New Comedian, an Amused Moose Edinburgh Laughter Awards finalist, and has a sitcom in development with Channel 4.
