Lawrence Leung (born 25 August 1977) is an Australian comedian, writer and director from Melbourne. He is best known for his television series Lawrence Leung's Choose Your Own Adventure based his one-man shows on stories about his obsessions, such as breakdancing, ghosts, the Rubik's Cube and his family. The son of Leo and Doris Leung, he grew up in Box Hill, Melbourne.
Leung has performed in shows in London's West End and at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, as well as having toured Australia extensively. In 2001, his show Sucker won Best Solo Show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, and in 2007, his show Lawrence Leung Learns to Breakdance won the Age Critic's Award for best Australian show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Best Local (Australian) Show at the 2008 Sydney Comedy Festival. His other shows included Skeptic, The Marvellous Misadventures of Puzzle Boy and Lawrence Leung Wants A Jetpack. He has also written pranks for the satirical comedy TV show The Chaser's War on Everything.
Leung often performs with Andrew McClelland; the pair have been friends since school and started in comedy together in an improvised comedy group called the Improbables, which also featured other young Melbourne comedians including Nick Caddaye (from sketch troupe Anarchist Guild Social Committee), Adam McKenzie (from comedy trio The Hounds) and UK-based comic Yianni Agisilaou. Their most recent collaboration was The Paradoxical Adventures of Lawrence Leung and Andrew McClelland: Time Ninjas, which both parodied their usual comedy styles and explores their youth together. Time Ninjas won the Jury Award at the 2009 Sydney Comedy Festival.
