Updated: Jan 22

Tom Wrigglesworth is a British stand-up comedian and radio presenter who is well-known for his storytelling style and observational humor. He has gained popularity through his performances on various comedy shows and festivals. Wrigglesworth often explores relatable everyday situations with a comedic twist, making his performances both entertaining and engaging.

Tom Wrigglesworth's reputation as a talented comedian was solidified when he rescued an elderly woman from a bureaucratic nightmare with Virgin trains, only to be wrongly accused of begging and subsequently arrested. This incident inspired his sell-out show, 'Tom Wrigglesworth's Open Return Letter to Richard Branson', which won the prestigious Chortle award for Best Show in 2010 and earned him a nomination for the main Edinburgh Festival Comedy award.

Furthermore, Wrigglesworth recently signed a deal for his own series on Radio 4, titled 'Tom Wrigglesworth's Open Letters', where he humorously tackles consumer affairs. His latest Edinburgh Festival sell-out show, 'Tom Wrigglesworth's Nightmare Dream Wedding', is currently on a national tour, offering audiences a roller coaster of hilarity and heartwarming storytelling.

2010 was a remarkable year for Tom Wrigglesworth as he appeared on Radio 4 with 'Tom Wrigglesworth's Open Return Letter to Richard Branson' and subsequently secured a full series. He sold out over 30 dates on his UK tour, including a successful run at London's Soho Theatre, which had additional dates added due to overwhelming public demand. In addition, he was invited to perform at the New Zealand Comedy Festival and the prestigious Montreal Festival, where he presented a full show, a distinction only a few comics enjoyed. Tom's talent and originality have established him as one of the most noteworthy comedians on both the UK and international circuit. His charismatic presence and ability to effortlessly engage with the audience have propelled him since his early beginnings in 2002. Just a year later, he triumphed in Channel 4's highly regarded So You Think You're Funny? competition, and in 2004, he earned a nomination for Chortle's Best Newcomer award. Since then, he has continued to captivate audiences across the UK comedy scene with his articulate storytelling and natural wit.
