Not so much a comedian as a force of nature, Spencer Brown is ripping up the comedy circuit like a cartoon tornado. Young, fresh, and like nothing you've ever seen before; crowds have been wowed by his childlike anarchy and Looney Tunes physicality in performances described by Time Out as "more an event than a gig." Seeing Spencer Brown is like a plugging into the comedy mainframe, so prepare to have your mind blown: this is refreshing, goofy comedy that will make you love life. He has performed stand-up on The Live Floor Show (BBC 2), Four at the Store (R4), and The Best of Edinburgh Comedy (BBC 2).
He has also appeared in Garth Merenghi's Darkplace (C4) and written for Smack the Pony (C4).
