Out of the Whirlwind
Now entering his 20th year as a stand up comedian, having won every award going and still as passionate as ever about the adventure of storytelling and comedy, Tommy is starting to take some very exciting risks. There's no manners on him - profound, dark, and silly too, his performance mesmerises in a way that is joyful, uplifting, inspirational and most importantly always breathtakingly funny. There is something zeitgeisty about Tommy. He taps in to the wider consciousness and manages to express what some people feel deeply - his great charm and roguishness allows him to say things others just couldn't get away with.
