Show details:

Tom Toal

Tom Toal

Tom Toal is a comedian, writer and actor, hailing from the South East London town of Bexleyheath.

One of comedy's rising stars he performed his debut show On The Scrapheap about the break-up of his 6 year relationship at the Edinburgh and Leicester Festivals in 2010 achieving widespread acclaim and reviews.

The follow up Rom-Coms and Revolutions followed in similar vein playing to a complete sell out audience for the full run.

In 2013 Tom Toal performed at The Comedy Reserve with The Pleasance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and in 2014 TT became an Amused Moose Best Comedy Show finalist for his solo Edinburgh Festival Fringe show, Prequel. In March 2017, he opened gigs for Rob Brydon for some of Rob's tour across the country.

One of Tom's major strengths is his ability to adapt to his audience. Having hosted a range of events from Post Rock Bands album launch to benefit nights for the Socialist Workers Party, Tom has no trouble changing his style to suit the audience, whether it be Stag/Hen weekends, art centre events or corporate crowds.

“Charmingly entertaining” - ★★★★ - The Scotsman

“Tom is a naturally skilful storyteller and smatters his stories with quick wit and tinges of dark humour” - EdFest Mag

“Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent” - Hairline


Jacob Nussey

Jacob Nussey

Jacob Nussey unassumingly draws in audiences with his deadpan style, sharp jokes, and ill-fated anecdotes with clever punchlines.

Jacob quickly established himself on the comedy circuit, after winning Bury Met Comedian of the Year and West Didsbury Comedy Festival New Act of the Year, having previously reaching the semi-finals of British Comedian of the Year, and So You Think You’re Funny.

Jacob was named by Chortle as one to watch for 2023. He’s seriously funny and well worth seeing in person!

“Offbeat stories with an air of resigned indifference which is highly effective” - Chortle

“Insanely funny, he'll be a household name before you know it” - Skiddle

“Hilariously nonchalant” - Broadway World
