I am also a writer, an actor, comfortable working in teams or independently and am proficient in Microsoft Office.
In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition, the following year he was a finalist in the Hobgoblin Comedy Award and in 2015 he took home the award for Comedian of the Year at the inaugural Great Yorkshire Fringe. Most recently he picked up the Audience Favourite Award at the Musical Comedy Awards 2017 and reached the final of English Comedian of the Year 2018.
A favourite of live bookers across the UK, Tom has also supported John Bishop, Jason Manford and Arthur Smith on tour and performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award.
In addition to his stand-up talents, Tom is an accomplished actor and writer having penned and performed two one-man murder mysteries, A Charlie Montague Mystery: The Game’s a Foot, Try the Fish and The Man with the Twisted Hip. Following two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Tom embarked on a national tour of both shows in autumn 2017.
Wave after wave of funny … a genuine joy
Excellent … beautifully daft
Tom Taylor returned for a cracking headline set. He’s a quirky, sometimes musical act with all the nervous energy of early Adam Hess with original gags and a confidence to work in the moment and mock his own stupidity. Dad jokes – and plenty of better ones besides – are rarely done this stylishly.
His brand of nervous, neurotic musical comedy – coupling deliberately simplistic tunes on an old Casio keyboard with cleverly constructed lyrics and smart wordplay – is an absolute delight
A fine and innovative Bontempi player and comedian
