Chambers Touring is delighted to announce Larry Dean will be taking his brand-new show Bampot on a tour of the UK in Autumn 2018.
Fresh from a sell-out international tour and an incredible debut on BBC2’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, Larry Dean returns with ‘Bampot’, his fourth solo show and follow up to ‘Fandan’, his critically-acclaimed, Top 10 British Comedy Guide best-reviewed show of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017.
‘Bampot’ is another masterclass in comedy storytelling, a series of expertly told tales about family, love and confidence that finds Larry questioning his relationship to all three. Weaving between sibling rivalry, childrens’ therapy and a break-up across continents, join one of British comedy’s most exciting talents on another hilarious trip through his uniquely brilliant comic world.
Larry Dean is an award-winning comedian and writer. Since being crowned Scottish Comedian of The Year at just 23, Larry’s star has continued to rise and rise, with his 2015 debut Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Out Now!’ receiving widespread critical acclaim as well as a Foster’s Comedy Award nomination for Best Newcomer. Following his Edinburgh success, Larry brought the show to London in January 2016 for a series of packed out performances at London’s Soho Theatre and then on to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where he was one of the standout performers on the Allstars Supershow Opening Night Gala. Larry returned to Edinburgh in August 2016 with his eagerly awaited new show ‘Farcissist’, for which he won the Amused Moose Comedy Award for Best Show. He subsequently took the show on a UK-wide tour and to Melbourne Comedy Festival.
2017 saw Larry bring new show ‘Fandan’ to Edinburgh for a sellout run, accruing a series of four and five-star reviews and consequently taking the show on a sellout UK and International tour.
Larry’s broadcast credits include ‘Comedy Central at the Comedy Store’ and ‘Roast Battle’ as well as BBC 2’s ‘Live At The Apollo’. He has also performed stand-up on ‘Live From The BBC’ on BBC2, having already appeared twice on BBC Presents: Best Of The Edinburgh Festival and Live From the Comedy Store for Comedy Central.
