Canadian comic Tony Law has taken his time finding fame in the UK, but thankfully is now well on his way to becoming a household name.
Though he has performed in Britain for well over a decade, his first major recognition was when he scooped the Amused Moose Laughter Award in 2011 and the £5,000 prize.
Tony was voted the winner by over 100 comedy industry professionals, plus as many fringe-goers eager to see the next big comedy thing and the comedian was presented with his gong by Kath Mainland, CEO of the Edinburgh Fringe and Stuart Snaith, MD of 2entertain which supported both strands of Amused Moose Comedy Awards.
A Chortle Award followed soon after and since then he has found himself on panel shows such as Nevermind The Buzzocks and others. If you want to see Mr Law in the flesh then he is likely to be found at one of London's regular comedy nights, including Old Rope near Oxford Circus, alternatively you can visit his website at www.mrtonylaw.com:
