Laurence Clark

Featuring Comedians, Michael Fabbri and Laurence Clark:

’With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects, comedian, Michael Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics, like his own dyslexia, to light-hearted silliness.’

Michael Fabbri

’Laurence Clark is an internationally-acclaimed comedian, writer and actor who has cerebral palsy. His observational, political stand-up and filmed stunts demonstrate the endearing naivety and ridiculousness of human behaviour by seeing the world through his eyes with humour and warmth.’

This evening aims to give firms and members a look into what they can do to forward the #MainstreamDisability project.
