Tom Wrigglesworth
Yorkshire-born Tom became a national have-a-go hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for ‘begging’. His subsequent sell-out show ‘Open Return Letter to Richard Branson’ bagged him a Chortle Award for Best Show in 2010 and a nomination for the main Edinburgh Festival award.

He recently won a Sony Award for his Radio 4 series; Open Letters. A 2nd series will be broadcast later this year.
As seen on Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Show and Electric Dreams, his articulate, evocative storytelling is a joy to behold. So behold him as he previews his latest Edinburgh Festival show; Utterly At Odds With The Universe.

Five star reviews from Time Out, The Scotsman, Edinburgh Guide, Edinburgh Evening News.

Four star reviews from Daily Mail, The Guardian, Sunday Times, Metro, Evening Standard, The Times, Daily Telegraph.

As seen on ‘Have I Got News for You’ and;Russell Howards Good News’ and as heard on The Now Show and The News Quiz. A former political adviser, Matt isn’t a typical twenty-something; a passionate, opinionated and excitable young man he loves football, ‘Prime Ministers Questions’ and pasties. He has also gone to extraordinary lengths to get close to both Tony Blair and Brian Clough – and has the pictures to prove it. He’ll be previewing his forthcoming Edinburgh Festival show – The Political Party.

Matt is a writer on 8 Out of 10 Cats and Stand-Up for the Week and can also be heard on his own late night phone-in show on the Sony-Award winning talkSPORT. Every Friday night Matt tackles the latest news and sports stories with his characteristic intelligence, warmth and wit.

As seen on ‘The Stand Up Show’ and ‘Phoenix Nights’.
