COMEDY

Hello, Tom Ward here. Comedy is my one true love – I leave my phone on at night in case she calls, and I’ll always take her back even though my friends warn me against her.

In August 2020 I WAS due to do my 4th solo show at Edinburgh Festival….but, well we all know what happened there don’t we? So ‘Return of The Love Machine’ will have to wait. Yes, times have got strange. I usually gig all around UK (and sometimes Europe and Asia) but that’s on hold for now while the world gets better…

In the meantime if you like your podcasts I recorded one called ‘People Talk’ with Jeff Innocent in 2018/19 and a stellar line up of comedians who came in for a chat…All 7 episodes are on Spotify and iTunes NOW!

You can find plenty of my stuff on Youtube too. Among other things…

Me hosting Lad Bible / Wrigley’s viral video series ‘In my personal space’, interviewing 7 different celebs.

On Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’ and ‘Stand up Central’ in 2018. That same year I was official tour support for Joe Lycett (off the telly).

…My terrible acceptance speech to winning Chortle’s Best Newcomer in 2017…

Featuring on Comedy Central’s ‘Live at the Comedy Store’, and BBC Worldwide’s ‘Live From The BBC’, as well as performing my first solo …show at Edinburgh Festival – ‘Sex, Snails and Cassette Tapes’ – at The Pleasance Courtyard, all in 2016 (you can watch the best of this show on Next Up Special here. – if you use this link you can get a free trial…https://nextupcomedy.com/ilovetomward

You can reach me on the Contact page and also through my agent.

I am represented by Hannah Layton Management.

Time Out

“Fine jokes and star presence: he’s a star in the making”

The Herald

“Staggeringly Impressive” *****

The List

“Inspired Whimsy” ****

Chortle

“Always keeps you guessing”

London is Funny - Bruce Dessau

“Ward’s got that certain something…and is definitely someone to look out for.”

Bruce Dessau (Evening Standard & Beyond The Joke)

“He was amazingly assured, improvising with the audience when he spotted a man who was maybe too relaxed in the crowd. Ward was also not scared to vary the pace and cleverly worked in a pre-planned carpet ad spoof, complete with sound effects. There was certainly plenty of originality here, leading the crowd in one direction before taking sharp verbal detours.”
