Within 5 minutes, you know who Tom Taylor’s pin ups are: Steven Wright, Gary Delaney, Stewart Francis, Milton Jones. Not to say that he is an imitation or an imitator, he has a style all of his own and his material is original, but it’s that bottomless well of one liners to which he aspires rather than narrative comedy.

Has he cracked it? Not quite. Is it all killer, no filler? Not yet. Usually by the end of the Fringe, performers are on their last legs, but I get the feeling that whoever sees Tom at the end will get the best of him as he has tried everything and dropped whatever didn’t work.

There’s definitely enough solid stuff here to justify the ticket price. Give him a go.
