What do you want to be?
What did you want to be when you were a kid? Australian comedian and all round nice guy Lawrence Leung sets off on the adventures of a lifetime as he tries - in real life - to achieve the dreams he had for himself as a child.
Lawrence Leungs Choose Your Own Adventure is an imaginative documentary/comedy/adventure series where the innocence of childhood ambition clashes with the realities of adulthood resulting in unexpected consequences that are hair-raising, heart-warming and hilarious. It's about finding out who we are, how we've changed, and what we can be.
Screened on ABC1 from April 2009, the series has garnered a huge following across the country
and he has single-handedly brought back the Rubiks Cube! Could Lawrence Leung be the new Chris Lilley?
In each episode, Lawrence chooses an adventure he imagined having as a boy. Can he be a real man in a hardcore wrestling ring? Can he beat the worlds fastest cube speedsolvers in an underground Fight Club? Can he find MacGyver in Los Angelese? If he can breakdance will he prove he is cool? Can he survive a rap battle on the mean streets of LA or rock out on MTV? And will he find true love...
Guided by mentors, and scrutinised by his loving but concerned parents (Lawrences real mum and dad), Lawrence tries to make his naïve dream come true as an adult. In the process, he meets and learns from the people who are living his dreams, and their own.
Some of the special guests, mentors and childhood heroes who help Lawrence achieve his dreams include breakdance pioneer Shabba Doo (Breakin and Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo), LAs fastest rapper Rifleman; 80s pop star Tiffany (I Think Were Alone Now); saxman Kirk Pengilly (INXS), Ian Dicko Dickson (Australian Idol); rock god Tim Rogers (You Am I); rock n roll wrestler The Ox; pick-up gurus Ross Jeffries (creator of Speed Seduction); Savoy (Founder and President Love Systems); Kerry OBrien (7.30 Report); daredevils and world record holders The Space Cowboy and The Arrow Catcher; and Australian Rubiks Cube champion Jasmine Lee.
There are over two hours of truly hilarious special features including deleted scenes, karaoke clip, music video & most importantly, Lawrence's step-by-step "How to solve the Rubik's Cube tutorial".
