London's Best Independent Comedy Club

Comedians As Seen On...

Anthony Ayton

One day in 1985 Anthony Ayton won a public speaking competition, judged by the now disgraced former MP Jonathan Aitken. From that day Anthony knew he wanted to a criminal lawyer. His “career” turned out to be a massive disappointment, nothing like LA Law at all. With his incredible insight Anthony now realises that he actually wanted to be a comedian all along. All top comedians have lawyers how many lawyers have a comedian?

Being a London kid who was the first black guy at an all-white boarding school not only puts him up there with Rosa Parks, it gives Anthony unique social perspective, which is difficult to capture in a self-written comedy biog.
