Add to favourites

Description

Tom Mayhew is a professional comedian. Well, he was. Over the last 18 months, he has sold out West End venues and signed on; he then stopped signing on to perform his own Radio 4 stand-up series. It's been both the most and least successful period of his career. ‘It is genuine, powerful, political stuff.' **** (Scotsman). ‘Authentic material we can relate to: funny, sharp, intelligent, meaningful and pleasing.' **** (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Mayhew is passionate, articulate and – above all else – hilarious.' **** (Skinny). 'Tory-hating leftie.' **** (Daily Mail).

Tom's take on the last 18 months is hilarious, touching, personal and relatable. We did all the laughs from titters to big belly when watching him - he played us like an orchestra. Watch him - you won't regret it!!

A fun mixture of prepared videos and chatting. Good laughs and sentimental moments. My first zoom show - I was pleasantly surprised by how well it comes across online.

Tom is a charming and funny comedian and his show is a really great way to spend an hour. Silly, hilarious and touching.

Mayhew is a very likeable performer with an interesting story to tell. The jobcentre suggested he 'think outside the box' and possibly retrain which isn't particularly helpful when nobody was hiring. While many have the attitude that those on benefits aren't trying hard enough to find work, there's a great contrast as those employed by the jobcentre appear to be doing the bare minimum themselves.
