Multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he boasts an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners. In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition, the following year he was a finalist in the Hobgoblin Comedy Award and in 2015 he took home the award for Comedian of the Year at the inaugural Great Yorkshire Fringe. Most recently he picked up the Audience Favourite Award at the Musical Comedy Awards 2017.
Tom has also supported Simon Munnery and Abandoman on tour and recently performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award. Tom is an accomplished actor and writer, having penned and performed two one-man murder mysteries, A Charlie Montague Mystery: The Game’s a Foot, Try the Fish and The Man with the Twisted Hip. Following two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Tom embarked on a national tour of both shows last autumn. In August 2019, Tom made his hotly anticipated debut solo hour at the Edinburgh Fringe, and was included in The Telegraph's Best Jokes of The Fringe.
"His brand of nervous, neurotic musical comedy – coupling deliberately simplistic tunes on an old Casio keyboard with cleverly constructed lyrics and smart wordplay – is an absolute delight."- The Skinny
