Fresh from his Best Newcomer nomination in 2015, Parry is back with a brand-new hour celebrating life, love and going tops off! Join the largest (girth, height) third of the legendary sketch team Pappy's as he sweats, shouts and explains everything he loves about a wedding. There will be stuff, there will be nonsense, there might even be a bit of karaoke. Important: this is not a musical show. 'A show that believes in the soul-nourishing quality of silliness' **** (Guardian). 'A thoroughly joyous romp' **** (

Had me in tears of laughter. Cleverly put together and so funny. Tom is very personable and enthusiastic. Don’t miss this show. I will be trying his tip for quickly removing a T-shirt (no spoilers - you will need to see it to find out)

The gentlest, most honest, most uplifting comedy, emerging - miraculously and relentlessly - from the mouth of a sweating, half-naked, 38-year-old party animal. Pitch-perfect inspiration for a thousand wedding speeches and karaoke nights. The Power Of Love will never sound quite the same again.

One of the most infectiously enthusiastic comedians around. He has produced a wonderfully playful & joyous show that everyone can enjoy.

Loved this energetic show which was very cleverly put together. Naturally funny, bringing, observational and physical comedy together with nostalgia, life tips and some tunes! Go see it .... you’ll love it.

First time we have seen Tom Parry - and what a good choice we made. Very funny show, interspersed with a touch of karaoke (hence the title), performed very energetically by the man himself. I defy anyone not to find this man entertaining. Add him to your list of must see shows!

If you translate Tom Parry’s name into French it comes out as Joie De Vivre.  ...

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 112 days ago

Loosely held together through the themes of weddings, speeches and karaoke, Parryoke! is a sweet-natured hour of enjoyable stand-up. Nothing beats Parry’s joie de vivre as he recounts tales of Swedish weddings, disappointing Christmas presents and the unforgettable musk of Lynx Africa. There’s even a baffling and (fingers crossed) true story...

The Guardian (4/5 stars) 113 days ago

That title, “Parryoke!”: the pun, the exclamation mark, the reference to karaoke. I must admit I went into Tom Parry’s show fearing a certain amount of heavily enforced audience participation, at the very sober hour of 6pm. I should have trusted Parry more. As one-third of the sketch heroes Pappy’s,...
