|Birthday||April 6th, 1984|
Lawrence Tallis is a writer for the webseries KateModern.
A native of Stockport in Manchester, Lawrence studied for his A-Levels in Economics, Government and Politics, and Law and Physics at Ridge Danyers College in the UK. He then went on to study Philosophy at Sheffield University from 2002-2006 and developed a strong interest in the existentialism of Jean-Paul Sartre (particularly his theory of 'Nothingness' about which he wrote his dissertation), Phenonemology (esp. Franz Brentano), Presocratic and Aristotelian metaphysics.
Lawrence got the job writing for KateModern after the production team put out an open call for scripts. He sent in a screenplay he wrote and was "discovered" by headwriter Luke Hyams. This is the first professional writing job for Lawrence, who is also working on developing and trying to sell his screenplay, as well as writing a sitcom.
As a writer, Lawrence is largely influenced by the world of sitcom and stand-up comedy. He gains inspiration from "Seinfeld," "The Office," "Father Ted," and "Black Books," as well as the work of the Coen Brothers, Spike Jonze, Charlie Kauffman, and Mel Brooks. His literary heroes are, among others, Albert Camus, Charles Bukowski, Ernest Hemmingway, George Orwell, and Zandie Snith.
