And Where You Are Going Wrong". As seen on The John Bishop Show (BBC1), Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, Russell Howard’s Good News and Live At The Electric (BBC3)

''Refreshingly original...Excellent'' ★★★★- Broadway Baby
''Very likeable...Clearly a rising star'' Bruce Dessau, the Evening Standard
Al Lubel became a lawyer to satisfy his mother and quit to become a comedian to satisfy his sadistic need to torture her. After graduating law school in Florida, Almoved to California, passed the bar exam on his first try and immediately began the practice of standup comedy. Within a year he won the $100,000 Comedy Grand Prize on Star Search. Doing the Tonight Show was a big childhood fantasy, so Al auditioned and became one of the last comics to appear with Johnny Carson. Al went on to do six more Tonight Show appearances with Jay Leno and made five appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman.
