Portrait of Lawrence Leung

Lawrence Leung

Lawrence is an award winning stand-up comedian, screenwriter and documentary-maker. He created the ABC1 comedy shows Lawrence Leung’s Unbelievable and the AFI Award-nominated Choose Your Own Adventure and co-wrote and starred in ABC2's action/comedy series Maximum Choppage. Recently, he wrote an episode of The Family Law (SBS2) and played a sleazy nerd in Jane Campion's Top of the Lake.

Lawrence has performed his one man shows in festivals and theatres around the world including London's Soho Theatre and the Sydney Opera House. His award-winning theatre show, Sucker, was adapted into the AWGIE-nominated feature film starring Timothy Spall. The screenplay was shortlisted for the 2017 NSW Premier's Literary Award.

As a hardcore geek, Lawrence once jumped out of a plane with a Rubik’s Cube and solved it during freefall – just in time to release the parachute.
