Lewis Schaffer was one of the top comics in the home of stand up comedy, New York City, as house MC at the Comedy Cellar and the Boston Comedy Club in Greenwich Village.
A short visit to London in 2000 went very wrong when love and marriage took him from his beloved New York and gave him children, divorce and heartache in the UK. Now trapped in a multi-occupancy council flat in Nunhead, a suburb of Peckham, Lewis Schaffer is making the worst of a bad situation.
Star of the longest-runing solo comedy show in London, the longest-running residency at London’s Leicester Square Theatre, and Resonance 104.4FM’s Nunhead American Radio.
A Malcolm Hardee Award winner.
“An hour with Lewis Schaffer is an hilarious, cathartic, exhilaratingly appalling experience.” – Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
“Schaffer is disconcertingly terrific. He is compelling, unique and most of all unpredictable.” – Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard
“He is a skilled, masterful and above all, eye-wateringly funny guy. If you consciously choose not to see him, don’t bother coming to the Fringe.” – Chortle
