'The Pajama Men create a cartoon of the mind – a shape-shifting world in which anything seems not just possible, but imminent' (The Guardian?)
'I was doubled over in a kind of hysterical agony. I felt as if my lungs had migrated into my throat and that my anatomy would soon be inside out' (Washington Post)
'Every now and again - though all too rarely - a comedy show comes along that casts things in a new light... this American duo ultimately possesses a marvellously unique appeal' (Evening Standard).

Tom Basden has redefined musical comedy. There are no parodies, no changed lyrics here. Basden writes proper, fully-formed jokes which happen to be set to music. Entrancing and laugh-out-loud brilliant, you simply cannot miss your chance to see him.
