Beck's Music Box :: Lawrence Leung

Lawrence Leung
Learns to Breakdance

An immensely entertaining and charming show, the hilarious breakdancing finale will have every audience member cheering for  Lawrence Leung, the coolest geek in town

Leung is a Lancelot seeking the Holy Grail of coolness, his initially humble quest building in intensity to deliver some epic  laughs

Join Lawrence Leung on his ambitious quest to become cooler than his older, bass guitar-playing brother. He encounters trendy fashionistas, professional pick-up artists and stumbles head-first into a hardcore breakdancing championship.

Fresh from sell-out shows in Edinburgh and an extended season at London's Soho Theatre, this award-winning comic also writes satirical pranks for The Chaser's War on Everything. He is best known for his documentarystyle comedy shows covering off-beat subjects such as con-artists, ghosthunting and Rubik's Cubes.

Leung asks what is ‘coolness'? Is it all a myth? And does doing a show about the notion of cool ultimately make one uncool? You decide.
