‘Slightly surreal, very amusing’ – Comedy Review
Witty wordsmith Tom was recent winner of Leicetser Mercury Comedian of the year 2015 with his skewed, rib-ticklingly pedantic tales and inventive leaps of logic.

‘Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer’ – The List
Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid. And not the merest hint of profanity. The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface. Jongleurs/Metro ‘Stand & Deliver’ Award winner and BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2′s ‘The Arthur Smith Lectures’.
