the longest-running residency at the prestigious Leicester Square Theatre; he has been the regular MC of Peter Cook’s Establishment Club; and is the star of Nunhead American Radio on Resonance FM London.

Lewis Schaffer was one of the top comics in the home of stand-up comedy, New York City. A short visit to London in 2000 went very wrong when love and marriage took him from his beloved New York and gave him children, divorce and heartache in the UK. Now trapped in Nunhead, a suburb of Peckham, Lewis Schaffer is making the worst of a bad situation.
