English Breakfast as a comedy show is new and original in the way it effortlessly spins together anecdotes with well-placed witticisms and criticisms. Lamarque will definitely have everyone laughing while instilling every individual with a reminder to be kinder and truer to oneself in the face of a society that is not always as warm and welcoming as a cup of tea.”


“[English Breakfast is] a roaring success, due to the open, welcoming presence Lamarque brings and the highly relatable, intelligently funny and gently hopeful content of his jokes. He has created a truly safe and cathartic collective experience that is nurturing, challenging and laugh-out-loud funny.”
