Tom Wrigglesworth appearing at this event

Tom is a frighteningly tall comedian, but a thoroughly nice man with a likeable stage presence and confident delivery. This Yorkshire funny man became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. He's also the winner of Channel 4's 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends. His warm and hilarious tales, told with true passion never fail to captivate the crowd. His television credits include Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Show, Live At The Comedy Store and Engineering Giants. 'Magical storytelling... a rare talent... hysterical and accomplished' (Time Out) 'The gods of comedy chose greatness for Tom' (The Scotsman).
