Tom Walker Returns To Edinburgh Fringe

Tom’s collaboration with Demi Lardner We Mustn’t won Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award

Award winning make-believer Tom Walker returns to Edinburgh this August with another fantastically inventive, wonderfully manic medley of mime, stand-up and sketch. Join him for a head-spinning joyride down memory lane as he recounts his twelve-year love affair with the javelin, that most noble of pursuits: throwing something very far.

In 2016 Tom won the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Best Newcomer Award for Beep Boop, as well as the Director’s Choice award for Zanzoop, with Sam Campbell & Aaron Chen. 2017’s inadvisably named follow-up Bee Boo earned a Barry nomination for Best Show at MICF before touring across Australia and to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and being broadcast as a comedy special as part of ABC2’s Comedy Next Gen. 2018’s Honk Honk Honk Honk Honk received rave reviews and transferred to London’s Soho Theatre for a completely sold out run. In 2019, Tom’s collaboration with Demi Lardner We Mustn’t won Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award; in the same year, his show Very Very was met with critical acclaim in Melbourne, Sydney and at the Fringe, and was released as a special on Amazon Prime in May 2020.

Tom was a main ensemble member of Whose Line Is It Anyway? Australia, alongside Steen Raskopoulos and Rhys Darby. He has also appeared on ABC’s Aaron Chen Tonight, Squinters alongside Tim Minchin and Sam Simmons, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival All Stars Gala. In 2020 he featured in Drunk History: Australia and E4’s The Paddock, and this year guest starred in Adult Swim’s animated comedy series The Hamlet Factory. Together with Demi Lardner he hosts bigsofttitty.png, the “podcast for no cowards”.
