“Relocated to the UK, this Australian import impressed with last year’s deeply personal show The Hedgehog Dilemma. Although she has an innate sense of the ridiculousness of performing, she still suffers extreme anxiety attacks, a struggle that this instinctively confessional, accomplished storyteller should relate with giddy abandon.” Scotsman -Edinburgh Festivals: 50 must-see events. As seen on Russell Howard’s Good News.
Tom Toal is a comedian, writer and actor, hailing from the South East London town of Bexleyheath. One of comedy’s rising stars he performed his debut show ‘On The Scrapheap’ about the break-up of his 6 year relationship at the Edinburgh and Leicester Festivals in 2010 achieving widespread acclaim and reviews. The follow up ‘Rom-Coms and Revolutions’ followed in similar vein playing to a complete sell out audience for the full run. One of Tom’s major strengths is his ability to adapt to his audience. Having hosted a range of events from Post Rock Bands album launch to benefit nights for the Socialist Workers Party, Tom has no trouble changing his style to suit the audience, whether it be Stag/Hen weekends, art centre events or corporate crowds.
