This show is all about stereotypes: why they matter, why they hurt, and why they can be strangely and yet compellingly funny at times.
As someone with cerebral-palsy who uses a wheelchair, Laurence has a lot to say on the subject of stereotypes most of it thought-provoking, or funny, or both. It did feel a bit weird at first - being slightly unsure if it's ok to laugh at some of this stuff. But as Laurence says, disabled people are just like the rest of us - which means that they can sometimes make a tit of themselves too.
He then proceeds to look at perceptions of disability from it's association with Evilness, being Fake, Invisible, Asexual and Pitied.
Laurence is no stranger to PowerPoint, but don't let that put you off. His slides, graphics and videos have the power to grab you in unexpected ways at times, and are in addition to, not instead of, good solid comedy.
Perhaps the strongest material is where he plays a couple of 'hidden camera' movies made specially for the show. In the first we see how many London taxi drivers whiz straight past a bloke in a wheelchair trying to hail a cab, and the unlikely lengths he has to go to before being noticed.
The second film shows how the mere sight of a disabled guy in a wheelchair shaking a charity bucket in the High Street has people reaching for their small change, regardless of the clearly-labelled yet ludicrous alleged cause. (An honourable mention to the quip from the audience - when Laurence asked just how unpopular a cause would have to be not to have the public reaching for their purses, one witty punter yelled out the Tories. Give that man a show).
All in all, an enjoyable performance don't expect side-splitting mirth, but the guy has something to say that isn't being said elsewhere, with a wonderfully warped wit that's definitely worth a hour of your time. Now someone pass me that bucket.
