Lachlan Werner

About Lachlan

Lachlan Werner is comedy's poof prince of puppets.

The "funniest new ventriloquist on the block" (Telegraph), clown and live artist, he was runner up for LGBTQ+ New Comedian Of The Year '22 and a nominee for Chortle Variety Act Award, BBC New Comedy Award, ISH Best Newcomer Edinburgh Comedy Award, Off-West End Cabaret Award, VAULT Comedy Breakthrough Award.

His debut solo show 'Voices Of Evil' has been a total sell out hit at Soho Theatre (2022/23), Edinburgh Fringe 2023, VAULT Festival, Brighton Fringe, London Clown Festival, winner of ReviewsHub Best Show Award, and nominated for a Soho Playhouse New York Award. He can frequently be seen yelling at himself with a small squishy witch. He is graduate of Ecole Philippe Gaulier and a regular collaborative member of the Fool's Moon collective.

He is currently workshopping a new show, WonderTwunk, and about to embark on his first international tour.
