Another Funny Show
An evening of the finest stand up with MC Tom Toal.
**Please note The Raymond And Mr Timpkins Revue are no longer performing and are replaced by Terry Alderton**
A loose-limbed, physical comedian who has had a rapid rise through the ranks and has been nominated for a Perrier Award. His shows are packed full of riotous exuberance and caricature. Combining a fearless onstage presence, unshakeable confidence and streetwise hyperactive delivery, Terry leaves his audience exhilarated and exhausted with laughter. Terry Alderton is an outstanding comic (and ex-Southend goalkeeper) who holds the record for the most encores at the Comedy Store. 'People keep asking me what is the best Edinburgh Festival show I've seen so far. The answer is simple - Terry Alderton' (The Sun) 'One of the best live shows I've ever seen. He's a f***ing genius!' Frank Skinner '... effortlessly enjoyable yet excitingly different' (The Times).

Comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London. 'Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent' (Hairline) 'Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling, and free tiny yoghurts, Toal painted an impressive, and at times, disturbing picture of a man on the edge... humour from the heart' (Three Weeks) 'Master of storytelling' (www.PunchlineUK.wordpress.com) 'You might find yourself taking a paracetemol to kill the pain in your jawline afterwards' (www.ShortCom.co.uk) 'We forget the misery and cold of the outside as the Tom Toal comedy glow warms us all' (Kate Copstick) 'Touching addition to the Daniel Kitson-esque heart-on-sleeve comedy sub genre' (List).
