New Corrie writer and his one-man comedy show

Writer Laurence Clark has been signed up by Coronation Street and he's just written 25 episodes, which will air from Boxing Day this year.

Before then, Laurence is taking his one-man show on the road. It's called "An Irresponsible Father's Guide to Parenting" and is billed as a hilarious piece that asks tough questions about the perceptions that we have on those who don’t follow societal norms.

Growing up, Laurence never saw dads with cerebral palsy; which made him think he’d never be a parent himself. Besides, the only thing he’d ever managed to look after was a cactus, and even that died from lack of water.

But then his future wife says he’d better be prepared for the fact she wants babies… which is a pretty strong opening line for a first date! What follows is the hilarious and heart-warming story of two people with cerebral palsy traversing the ups and downs of parenthood.

If Laurence is an irresponsible father then it’s nothing to do with being disabled! It’s probably more to do with balancing his wife’s crutches on his son’s baby walker to make him look like a Dalek!
