My Comedy

Welcome to Ben Lawes Comedy


  I'm a  stand up comedian, married with 2 wonderful children, a grandson and a border collie - I know, wine helps me out with this!

  I'm a  stand up comedian, married with 2 wonderful children, a grandson and a border collie - I know, wine helps me out with this!

My comedy is observational with a twist of sarcasm, based loosely on my life and the strange world in which we live. 

I'm a lover of all comedy whether it be stand-up or sitcoms,  old or new, traditional and surreal.

 A few of my comedy inspirations are Morecombe & Wise, Tommy Cooper & Rowan Atkinson with more recent comics,  Lee Mack, Kevin Bridges,  Jim Jefferies & Peter Kay.

My childhood consisted of many hours watching Fawlty Towers, Only Fools and Horses, Blackadder - the list is endless.  Nowadays I enjoy Peter Kays Phoenix Nights,  Not going out, Veep - to name just a few.

 Its an eclectic mix!


I'm an avid  football, cricket  & NFL fan, in fact there's not many sports I don't enjoy.  Myself and my son are Bolton Wanderers season ticket holders and Sunday evening's are reserved for watching the New York Jets.


I'm Based in the North West of England and you can see me performing at  comedy clubs & venues across the UK.  I've had the pleasure of performing at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, taking my own show in 2010 with Ecuador's finest Chorley comedian; El Purnell.

 You can hear me regularly on The Steve Royle Show on BBC Radio Lancashire and guested on BBC GMR and  Manchester's FAB Radio.



 I'm a stand up comedian, compere and host.
