My name is Tom Little and I am a stand-up comedian. I’ll be doing my debut hour at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe. That’s the poster/flyer above (by Banksie Banks at Peril Design).
This is the back.
I won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2015 and was a finalist in the BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2014. In 2015 I performed as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe (‘Hilarious.’ *****, The Mirror) and then, at the 2016 Fringe, performed as part of the Big Value: Early Show showcase for Just The Tonic. I gig all over the place.
Here are some quotes about me from other people.
‘A brilliant, loudly awkward set…. His material is somehow simultaneously incredibly sharply written and bluntly delivered; his routines are very funny, completely inventive, sitting perilously on the fence between allowing an audience to think they know what’s coming, and pulling something unexpectedly bizarre out of the bag.’ – Gigglebeats
‘Little’s showstopping set-piece … made an immediate impact and it was no surprise that the judges felt that that he was the front runner.’ – Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke.
‘Tom’s original style and inventive material stood out in what was a stellar night of strong performances.’ – Leicester Mercury.
‘Little displayed the unhinged offbeat qualities that won over the judges last year – and rightly so.’ – Marissa Burgess, Chortle.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is, I’m better at stand-up than I am at designing this terrible wordpress website that you’re looking at now. Please don’t judge me by this.
I live in Salford and have a car. Neither of these facts are interesting but they’re the kind of thing people who book gigs like to know, so I thought I’d mention them.
I think that’s everything.
