Charismatic wordsmith Tom Wrigglesworth began his ascent up the comedy ladder in 2002 and has steadily earned a reputation as a promising and dynamic newcomer on the British comedy circuit.
In 2003, he scooped first prize in Channel 4’s 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. A year later, industry attention turned to Tom once again when he was nominated for Chortle 'Best Newcomer’ - earning him recognition from the most comprehensive, critical and up-to-date guide to comedy in Britain. 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 inspired, distinctive style and assured delivery. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they are old friends. With 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.
Tom made his debut at the Edinburgh festival in 2006, performing at the Gilded Balloon in a double headline show with Tom Allen, entitled 'Allen and Wrigglesworth’. He also compered the prestigious 'Big Value show’ at the Café Royal the same year - truly cementing his status as a formidable and accomplished MC. In 2007 he returned to the Edinburgh festival and performed to sell-out audiences in 'AAA Stand Up’ at the Pleasance Courtyard. He is now busy developing his eagerly awaited full length solo show 'I’m struggling to see how that’s helping’ which he will perform at 6pm in the Pleasance Courtyard during this year’s festival. Recent ventures for Tom in television, music and radio include his TV debut on Paramount Comedy’s The World Stand’s Up and recording sets for Paramount Comedy’s The Comedy Store & Edinburgh and Beyond. On the airwaves, he’s been a panellist on BBC Radio Wales comedy show Jest a Minute, and has performed on BBC Radio 2’s Out To Lunch and Channel 4 Radio’s The Tube. He has also been a regular sidekick on BBC Radio Wales weekend flagship show The Rhod Gilbert Show and during the last football season, he was a regular contributer to Fanbanta.com; travelling the length and breadth of the country reporting on all things football related for their website and podcasts.
Tom is now in great demand as a live act, working for The Comedy Store and all the major comedy clubs around the UK. A master of spontaneity, he is ideally suited as a compere and equally comfortable performing full sets. He has recently been invited to join both Rhod Gilbert and Justin Moorhouse as a special guest on their national tours.
As one of the brightest and most promising newcomers on the scene, Tom Wrigglesworth is widely regarded as a name to watch out for.
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the ´Stand-up Show' (BBC1) after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on 'Live at Jongleurs' and 'The World Stands Up' for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, 'Brain Candy'. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of 'TV Meltdown' for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), and has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television. Addy recently played the starring role of 'Jack Watson' in his first film, 'Little Things' for Pandelic Films Addy was the only British comic that was invited to appear in the Twentieth Century Fox Comedy Showcase in Los Angeles in September 2003. With brilliant timing and an array of voices and characters which animate and enliven even the most drab subject matter (computers, museums, libraries) Addy has built a following of fans not just in all the major clubs in Britain (Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Banana Cabaret, Up The Creek, The Glee) but also worldwide, including Spain, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Croatia, Switzerland, Dubai, Bahrain, Muscat, Qatar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Shanghai and Australia. Addy has also performed complete sell out runs at the South Africa Comedy Festival in Cape Town (2002) and the New Zealand International comedy Festival in Auckland (2006) as well as writing and performing three sell out one man shows at the Edinburgh festival (2000, 2002, 2004).
Adam Bloom is one of Britain´s most inventive comedians. He has performed sell-out solo shows at a host of Edinburgh Festivals as well as performing a sell-out tour of Britain. He has also sold out theatres at festivals in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington & Cape Town as well as making three visits to 'Just For Laughs’ in Montreal. In 2004, Adam was part of the 'Just For Laughs Comedy Tour', playing to 42,000 people in 17 cities across Canada. He has also written three series of 'The Problem with Adam Bloom’ for BBC Radio 4 ('03-'05).
