Hello. Alright? I’m Tom Ward: Stand up Comedian. Comedy is my love – I leave my phone on at night in case she calls, and I’ll always take her back even though my friends warn me off her.

In August 2018 I’ll be taking my third show (‘Popcorn Lung’) to Edinburgh Festival, which will be on every day at The Mash House at 7pm if you’re passing through. Tickets are on sale now: https://bit.ly/2K3LGls

Here’s some achievement related stuff ‘cos I know you people like that sort of thing…

I am official tour support for Joe Lycett (off the telly) in 2018.

In 2017 I won the Chortle Best Newcomer Award, which made me extraordinarily happy.

In 2016 I featured on Comedy Central’s ‘Live at the Comedy Store’, and BBC Worldwide’s ‘Live From The BBC’, as well as performing my first solo show at Edinburgh Festival – ‘Sex, Snails and Cassette Tapes’ – at The Pleasance Courtyard.
