'Thomas Ward is a stand-up comedian. Increasingly on the radar of promoters and punters alike for his unique style, you will find him in London and the British beyond taking you sideways, on his search for meaning, through the familiar worlds of carpet adverts, supermarkets, impersonations and tales of teenage love' (Comedy CV). 'Fine writing, evoking silly images and ideas, combines with a distinctive look to make him memorable" (Steve Bennett, Chortle). 'Inventive stand-up Thomas Ward; a spaced-out, sometimes poetic comic with a terrifying fringe, and a very funny take on the world' (The Stage). 'Intriguing... with an air and a style that was partly conventional but partly bizarre, as if the world had been ever-so-slightly knocked off its axis' (Bruce Dessau).

"Apollo-quality" **** - Three Weeks "McDonnell is a cut above the rest" **** - Broadway Baby "A forceful, leave-no-pauses onslaught" - Chortle "Candid and insightful" - The Irish Post Ryan is a multi-award winning comedian from Northern Ireland. You might find him performing regularly at any of the UK's top comedy venues, or further afield on the international circuit. There's a chance you could bump into him supporting someone infinitely more successful than himself on tour. It is even a remote possibility that you've already encountered one of his shows at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. It's unlikely that you've revelled in many of his TV and radio appearances, but surely somebody must have.
