Episode 20 – Sucker with Lawrence Leung

On a cold wet Scottish night over five years ago at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, I had a quiet drink with comedian Lawrence Leung in a small pub just off the Royal mile. Lawrence told me about his attempts to write a feature film based on his one man show, Sucker and I talked about the book I was writing, Chasing The Ace. Half a decade later and Chasing The Ace is in all good bookstores (shameless self promotion be damned) and Sucker is showing at cinemas around Australia.

On this week’s Scamapalooza, Lawrence and I sit down to discuss how he turned a sixty-minute one-man show into a fully fledged feature film starring John Luc (youtube’s MyChonny) as Lawrence, a teenager who falls in with The Professor (Timothy Spall) an old school con man, and his daughter Sarah (Lily Sullivan).
