Episode 69 - Clowning Around… Working Class Funny with Tom Mayhew

Clowning Around Podcast

Tom Mayhew’s Social Media: Facebook: TomMayhewComedy Instagram: TomMayhewComedy Twitter: TomMayhew About Tom Mayhew Tom Mayhew is a critically acclaimed comedian, whose material about being working-class – mixing the personal and the political, with the punchline-rate of a one-liner comic – sets him apart from any other act on the circuit. His 2019 Edinburgh show I, Tom Mayhew, about being someone in their 20s living on benefits in austerity Britain, received 4 and 5 star reviews across the board, and transferred to a sell-out Soho Theatre run. It then led to a Radio 4 series being commissioned off the back of it, Tom Mayhew is Benefit Scum, which led to The Daily Mail describing Tom as “a Tory-hating lefty” while also giving the show 4 stars. Mad. He has written for The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4), NewsJack (BBC Radio 4 Extra) and performed comedy on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Pull Back Reveal

EDFRINGE EXTRAS BONUS 5: Another bonus episode chatting with acts on the ground in Edinburgh! This time I speak with 3 very different performers, but with 3 equally amazing shows! JAY BENNETT: AN AUDIENCE WITH YASMINE DAY. Failed 80s diva and Dorking's most successful pub singer Yasmine Day boldly attempts to revive her flagging career with a last ditch concert extravaganza. Expect unique renditions of 80s power ballads, world-famous originals you've never heard of and (definitely true) celebrity anecdotes. Debut character comedy from Jay Bennett. Finalist: London Cabaret Awards; nominated: Best Comedy Event (Buxton Fringe). As seen on BBC 3. TICKETS: https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/audience-with-yasmine-day TWITTER: ‪@YasmineDay80 ‬SUSIE MCCABE: DOMESTIC DISASTER. Susie McCabe (multi award-winning comedian, Best Scottish Headliner 2017, and fastest-selling Glasgow Comedy Festival act three years running) brings her sell-out and critically acclaimed show to Edinburgh. Revel in McCabe's raconteur style and razor-sharp punchlines in this hilarious show as she recounts the absurdities of her life; at nearly forty years old she's a shambles and never far from disaster. Playing to ever increasing sold-out shows around the country, Susie is fast becoming one of the hottest tickets in the UK. 'Delivers plenty of chuckles' (Scotsman). TICKETS: https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/susie-mccabe-domestic-disasterTWITTER: ‪@susie_mccabe ‬TOM MAYHEW: I, TOM MAYHEW. Tom Mayhew (BBC New Comedy Award semi-finalist 2018) was unemployed for three years from the age of 18. This is a story of rejections, the JobCentre, being working class, and fighting for your place in the world. With lots of jokes. This show explores what its really like for someone in their twenties in 2019. While some seem to think we have it all, the reality is that many of us can't afford to move out of our parents' place. 'His content is from the heart; spellbinding, raw and telling... a genuine joy to watch' (Kate Copstick). TICKETS: https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/i-tom-mayhew TWITTER: ‪@TomMayhew ‬--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/pullbackreveal/message
