We’re back this month to correct a grave injustice. A comedian from Sheffield with immense talent and an array of critical acclaim has somehow never joined us before now. Obviously that oversight needed addressing so we fixed it.
Tom is a frighteningly tall comedian but a thoroughly nice man. He became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends. His warm and hilarious tales, told with true passion never fail to captivate the crowd. Since winning the Channel 4 new comedian competition, ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ in 2003, Tom is now firmly established as one of the most original, talented and respected comedians on the UK and international comedy circuit. He’s also won the Sony Radio Comedy Award, Chortle Best Show, Time Out Break Through Act, New Zealand Comedy Festival Best International Comic to name a few. He’s also appeared on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 2, BBC 2, BBC 3 and Comedy Central. All that, and he’s from Sheffield too.
