Alternative comedy has been the resurgent genre internationally in the last 3 to 4 years as shows of this type have dominated the awards from Edinburgh to Melbourne. The alternative comedy scene of Britain in the 80's is responsible for so much of the vibrant industry we know, love and sometimes don't today. One uncompromising artist who has been at the heart of this scene is once again at the centre of its revival, Stewart Lee has once again got the genre back on mainstream TV.
His Comedy Central show, The alternative Comedy Experience where Stew hand picks the best of the comedy industry has just been commissioned for a second series reinforcing the demand that is out there. One of the biggest stars of the 1st series was the amazing Tony Law and he is the only comic to be recalled for Season 2. In a year when he was nominated for the main Edinburgh Award and won the 2 Chortle awards but also one was for his brilliant 'Maximum Nonsense'' show.
He is totally the comic of the hour and will go back to Edinburgh with a new show entitled 'Nonsense Overdrive' and no one would back against him winning the main prize, such is his current form.
A Tony Law show is simply only to be experienced live and he has been in Spain before. He performed in Madrid to a small Giggling Guiri crowd (when are you going to believe us) in 2012 but it provoked the strongest reaction we ever had to a show in Spain.
However it is my great pleasure... as it is in response to a personal request by this programmer who never actually got to see the 'Maximum Nonsense' show, that we can announce Tony will perform a show entitled 'Maximum Nonsense Overdrive'.
It means the most exciting Law show possible as we will get a show of two halves one half the award winning 'Maximum Nonsense' and the other the brand new show 'Nonsense Overdrive' destined to rock the Edinburgh Fringe this August.
It promises to be an incredible comedy show, and really a one off exclusive for FIC.
