Laughed til my cheeks hurt. Tom has a good eye for spotting some of the utter ridiculousness of life and pointing out the obvious, that is so obvious that we completely miss it. Good audience interaction too without belittling anyone. Cheers Tom.

Absolutely brilliant show. Laughed lots and Tom is a really genuinely nice guy. His comedy is fantastic and very relatable.
Will definitely follow him and try to catch him again in the future.
Go and see him at The Fringe, Tom is a must see

Brilliant show, Tom is very funny, best comedian we’ve seen all week. A great venue as well. Show was good for the two teenagers we took with us (14 & 16) and they rated it. Thanks Tom!

We bumped into Tom who was doing his own flyering outside. We had came out of another show and were pretty disappointed as it was rubbish. So the first thing I said to Tom was "Is it funny!" Obviously he's not going to say no because it's his show. He seemed like a great guy and had us laughing outside, so we thought why not. In we went and I can honestly say I'm so glad we did. His show was brilliant. Great story about his upbringing, links in with the audience and had everyone in hysterics. I would go to see him again and would highly recommend that everyone else does. By far the best and funniest show we seen all day by a country mile. Look forward to you making us laugh again Tom. Good luck with the rest of your other shows for the rest of the fringe.

Myself and my girlfriend were walking past Tom and didn’t really fancy another show. When he said he was the one doing the comedy as well I thought definitely not. However, we decided to go along and it was a great decision! Tom is really funny, down to earth and learning about his upbringing through comedy was really good. Made it really interactive with the audience too! Good luck with everything Tom. Hope to see you again soon!

Great show. Spur of the moment decision but definitely a good choice. Laughed from start to finish. Tom’s take on growing up was brilliant.
This is a must see show

Over the course of his debut Edinburgh Fringe hour, Tom Glover carves out a wonderfully colourful family history, spanning three generations. Oh, and it has bikes and horror films in it too. Ostensibly, A Glover Not a Fighter is about how the relationship between Glover and his father has evolved....
