The acclaimed New York comic has been based in the UK for the past fifteen years, and now he has some things to get off his chest and share with his new audience. According to Schaffer, following a short visit to London in 2000 he was held ‘hostage’ in the UK, when love and marriage went horribly wrong and gave him children, divorce and heartache.
Lewis Schaffer is everything you expect from a long-established comic from the home of comedy, New York. Combining the comedy genes of Joan Rivers and Jackie Mason with the relevance of Britain’s freshest comedians, Free Until Famous is guaranteed to be the bright spot in your week.

Not only was he the house compere of the Comedy Cellar and the Boston Comedy Club in New York, in London he has the longest-running residency at the prestigious Leicester Square Theatre. He is also the regular MC of Peter Cook's Establishment Club, and is the star of Nunhead American Radio on Resonance FM London.
With a free-wheeling style that is often described as ‘jazzy’, every Schaffer show is different, but all are equally as thrilling. So if you love to laugh out loud, it’s time to fasten your seat belts and book your tickets as Lewis Schaffer is Free Until Famous.
