'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).

(www.goodshipcomedy.com) “A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on…an impressively wide range of topics…bringing flair and confidence to them all.” Steve Bennett, Chortle “Highly promising…an accomplished comic.” Time Out “Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue.” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine “The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post “On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we’re swept up.” Fest
