Tom Houghton

"Clever, passionate, soulful." ✭✭✭✭✭ The New European
"Get a ticket today. Tomorrow may well be too late. A star is born." ✭✭✭✭✭ One 4 Review
"The long awaited male answer to Bridget Jones made flesh." ✭✭✭✭✭ The Daily Telegraph

Tom has been writing and performing comedy for many years in plays, sketches and musicals and for 9 years was part of the improv comedy group The Noise Next Door.

He is now riding solo again and has been storming the comedy circuit with his hilarious stories and sharp-eyed silver spoon observations. This is posh-boy stand-up delivered with great charm, energy and theatricality by the son of the former Chief of the Defence Staff who is now Constable of the Tower of London.

Whether it’s about growing up with his Dad, living in the Tower of London or lifting the lid on the all-boys boarding school environment, every tale will fascinate and make you think, while at the same time have you doubled over with laughter.

Now the total Edinburgh Festival Fringe sell-out, star of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and critically-acclaimed star of Channel 4’s First Dates, Tom is a master of making the seemingly unrelatable, relatable.

He will be tour support for Milton Jones later in 2020.
