'Your funny best friend, only funnier’ (The Herald)
'Honest, heartfelt, slickly delivered, irresistible and, yes, occasionally disturbing stand-up...Relatable, warm and crucially very funny' List
'Equally at home as a compere or main act, Silky has consistently proved himself one of the best and most reliable performers around. Highly recommended' (Leeds Guide)
'Considered and clever: excellent timing and dry delivery revealed a comic at the top of his game' (352 Magazine Luxembourg)
'Always brilliant’ (Metro)
'... a very, very funny fella... just brilliant' (John Bishop)
'... Silky whose irresistible stage persona combines angriness with silliness. He has a mastery of the descriptive phrase and his mix of self-deprecating wit, music and gently quirky material brings audiences together in tears of laughter (Funhouse Comedy).

So You Think You’re Funny? finalist and Musical Comedy Awards winner, Tom Taylor, has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he boasts an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners.
A favourite of live bookers across the UK, Tom has also supported Simon Munnery and Abandoman on tour and recently 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.

Affable quick-witted banter merchant Sam Avery wanted to be a rock star! It nearly happened! Snapped up by music bigwigs at the tender age of 17 and touring with Motorhead and Ice T, he quickly developed a taste for sweat and snakebite.
