Larry Dean

Comedian

A sharp-talking Scot who defies all expectations, Larry Dean is one of the most original voices to emerge from the UK comedy scene in years. Praised by The Guardian for his “cheeky-chappie shtick”, and described by the London Evening Standard as “fascinatingly funny”, this garrulous Glaswegian is already well on the way to becoming a household name. It has been an incredible ascent. Dean was 23 years old when he was named Scottish Comedian Of The Year, in 2013.

A sharp-talking Scot who defies all expectations, Larry Dean is one of the most original voices to emerge from the UK comedy scene in years. Praised by The Guardian for his “cheeky-chappie shtick”, and described by the London Evening Standard as “fascinatingly funny”, this garrulous Glaswegian is already well on the way to becoming a household name. It has been an incredible ascent. Dean was 23 years old when he was named Scottish Comedian Of The Year, in 2013.

Larry’s star went supernova with last year’s solo show Out Now!, which captivated audiences and critics alike with a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe debut, and earned nominations for the Fosters Comedy Awards’ Best Newcomer and the Scottish Comedy Awards’ Best Festival Show.

Next, Dean took that eye-opening hour of stand-up on tour throughout the UK, and made a much talked-about debut at the’ Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Allstars Supershow Opening Night Gala.

In a snowball of happy hype, Larry was invited on the road supporting A-listers Stephen K Amos and Eddie Izzard, and has made a mark on the airwaves with numerous TV appearances, including BBC Presents: Best Of The Edinburgh Festival and Live From The BBC.

He arrives in Dubai fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe stage, where this summer Larry debuted new show Farcissist. The city’s critical Fest Magazine served him with a five-star review, declaring “Dean is unmissable, with razor-sharp gags and precise timing, proving that he is one to watch in years to come. “ Appearing on a Laughter Factory bill for the first time, this serious talent should be on any comedy fan’s bucket list.
