Wrigglesworth, wit and wisdom
2:50pm Thursday 30th January 2014 in News
SINCE winning the Channel 4 competition, So You Think You’re Funny, in 2003, Tom Wrigglesworth has established a reputation for being one of the most talented and respected comedians on the UK and international comedy circuit.
Following sell-out performances at the New Zealand Comedy Festival and the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, Tom recorded two series of Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Letters for BBC Radio 4.
The programme, in which Tom tackled common consumer issues in his own hilarious way, won him a highly acclaimed Sony Award for best Radio Comedy.
Further radio credits include being a regular side kick and co-host to Rhod Gilbert on his Saturday morning BBC Radio Wales show, as well as numerous airings on panel shows such as The Unbelievable Truth, It’s Your Round and The Infinite Monkey Cage.
In his new show Utterly at Odds with the Universe Tom takes an emotional journey exploring his profound relationship with his grandad.
Reflecting on these early conversations, Tom comes to fully understand the influence this man has had on his own life, and explores the fantasy of being able to make one final interview.
Expect elegant flourishes of language, twisted logic and whimsical storytelling courtesy of one of the finest and most original comics in the UK.
Tom Wrigglesworth presents Utterly at Odds with the Universe on Sunday, February 23 at Bromsgrove's Artrix at 7.30 pm.
Tickets cost £12 (£10 concessions) from the box office on 01527 577330 or online at artrix.co.uk.
