The stand-up spectacularly fell out with most of his comedy peers in 2014 following a series of controversial statements sympathising with Ukip and criticising ‘women-posing-as-comedians’ on panel shows. Now Emmy-award-winning film-maker Wael Dabbous – whose previous documentaries have focussed on the Syrian revolution and child prisoners in Burundi – has charted how Lawrence ‘became one of Britain's most hated comedians overnight’.
