Larry Dean

Comedian Profile

“Larry Dean has all you want from a classic stand-up. Confident, easy-going, some great lines, and full of surprising twists. His patter drew you into his world and you were happy to spend time there”, Alan Nixon (Creative Director – C4, C5 & Comedy Central)

“Sharp and unexpected lines…a brilliant callback…sells them with an irresistible chutzpah”, Chortle

“Promising newcomer”, Time Out Magazine

“Hilarious accounts of his family life and problems with his sexuality…had the audience roaring”, Venue Magazine

“Dean is a charming performer…he is amiable and chatty”, Broadway Baby – Edinburgh Fringe 2012

“Engaging and funny, enough to make one think that a full hours set from him might be preferable”, Three Weeks – Edinburgh Fringe 2012

“A master of audience control, wit and dark humour”, Giggle magazine

“An instant hit with the crowd, thanks to great audience interaction and embarrassing personal stories”, The Portsmouth News

“Friendly, cheeky and approachable demeanour adding slickness and professionalism”, Crispy Comedy Cuts

“I am shocked and slightly perturbed by his exuberance and quick wit. Knock Knock Channel 4”, Scott Capurro (Perrier Award Winner)

“A high energy and engaging comic with a knack of reading the room, Larry Dean shows good writing and accomplished delivery every time” , Mirth Control

“We have had Larry Dean at our club on two separate occasions, and on both, he absolutely brought the house down. The majority of our audience are regulars and have asked if Larry will be on the bill for the next club, despite having seen him twice already. I couldn’t recommend this guy highly enough”, No Strings Comedy Club

“A very good set, worked well with a tough room”, Gary Delaney (Mock The Week)
