Hailing from Sheffield, with a fine comedy name, Tom Wrigglesworth started his ascent up the comedy ladder in 2002 and has steadily earned a reputation as an exciting and promising newcomer on the British comedy circuit.

In 2003, he scooped first prize at the prestigious ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ competition; an award previously won by stand up luminaries including Dylan Moran, Peter Kay, Rhona Cameron and Tommy Tiernan.

In 2004, Tom was recognised once more by the Comedy industry receiving a nomination for the Chortle ‘Best Newcomer’. He threatened to go professional if things continued to go well and in 2005 he took the plunge and left the day job.

Since then, the lanky Yorkshireman has continued to take the UK circuit by storm, wooing audiences far and wide with his gangly presence and confident and assured delivery. He has a winning combination of an impossibly likeable persona and a catalogue of first class material. His set is littered with stylish one-liners and twisted tales which reveal an inherently dark humour. A natural performer, Tom possesses an innate and skilful ability to riff with any audience like they are old friends; instantly establishing a winning rapport and making it all appear simply effortless.
