MC Hammersmith (aka Will Naameh, the skinny posh one from Men With Coconuts, Spontaneous Sherlock and Spontaneous Potter) is an award-winning freestyle rap improvisational comedian.
He is the world’s leading gangsta rapper to ever emerge from the ghetto of middle class white west London.
Now based in Edinburgh, he performs across the UK and worldwide. He is the 2017 UK Improv Smackdown Champion, and the 2018 Scottish Comedy Award Best Newcomer, and has been seen on BBC Scotland and STV.
“An exceptionally dazzling performance... utterly enthralled” - The Skinny
“The funniest rapper in the world” - Culross Festival
“A shy, somewhat repressed ex-public school attendee blazing through an incredible freestyle rap” - The Wee Review
Since starting in September, 2008, Tony Jameson has established himself firmly as one of the brightest prospects in the North East comedy scene.
With his whimsical rambling manner, or flight of fancy, Tony takes audiences on a tour of the inner workings of his mind and the strange things that happen in his life. Fleeting from whimsy to dark one-liners, before stopping for a cup of tea and a breather. It’s a bit like a small child who always asks ‘why?’ His observations are well thought out, keeping the audience on their toes and intrigued, eager to see where his journey will take them.
In 2014 Tony had an exceptional run at the Edinburgh Festival, following a sell-out run in 2013 with his critically acclaimed show Football Manager Ruined My Life, which he then toured throughout Winter 2014, before taking it back on the road in 2015.
