The Charlie Montague Mysteries: Tom Taylor
Award-winning comedian, Tom Taylor, sets out to tour the UK this autumn with the first and second episodes of his critically-acclaimed Charlie Montague Mysteries. These delightful one man plays are packed with nonstop laughs from start to finish and a revolving gallery of high society dames and eccentric waiters – all played by Taylor.
Two gloriously silly murder mysteries for anyone who ever wished Bertie Wooster was a detective.
The Game’s a Foot, Try The Fish is the introduction to the hero, Charlie Montague. Inspired by the Hippodrome’s latest mystery play, rakish aristocrat Charlie takes out an advert offering his services as a consulting detective and, one breakfast later, finds himself on his first case. What follows sees the gloriously inept love child of Agatha Christie and PG Wodehouse determined to prevent a murder. The chap dies.
The Man with the Twisted Hip sees Charlie (not put off in the slightest by the ups and downs of his first case) accept an invitation to the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with the double-threat of murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.
“A gloriously silly solo homage to Hercule Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey” (The Stage).
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.
