In some moments of strangeness he channels the spirit of the late Chris Lubey – a circuit comic whose act was impersonating RAF fly-pasts – then he’s on about a lizard-moose who can see the future . A large chunk is delivered in an accent from America’s Deep South for no particular reason. Some of the tales might be considered metaphor – his past life as a trampolining champ mirroring some ups and downs in his mental wellbeing – most might be considered just plain surreal, for you can’t spell Tony Law without WTF.
This isn’t, perhaps, vintage Law, but he’s never less than intriguing: funny peculiar as much as it is funny ha-ha, though if you buy tickets for a show with a title as cumbersome as A Law Undo His-elf What Welcome, that’s only to be expected. And if you’re not on Law’s wavelength you’ll get baffled, and quite possibly angry, at how such nonsense could possibly pass as comedy.

Ryan's comedy career began in 2007 in London. After just a year of service he was awarded a place in the Magners Comedy Awards final of 2008, before going on to finish as runner-up in the prestigious Amused Moose new act competition in Edinburgh the following year.
2010 saw him turn professional as well as make his debut at the Edinburgh Festival's esteemed Pleasance Courtyard, as part of Bound & Gagged's 'AAA' show, which was a complete sell-out for the entire run.
