Former ‘Best International Performer’ Winner, Sony Award Winner and Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee makes a highly-anticipated return to the festival with his exquisite new show. In turns poignant and hilarious, expect elegant flourishes of language, twisted logic and whimsical storytelling courtesy of one of the UK’s finest and most original comics. This show tracks the relationship he had with his Grandfather, centering on audiocassette interviews made in the mid 1980s, when Wrigglesworth was a small child.

With a disarmingly charming delivery and unforgettable appearance, this Yorkshire funny man became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of a Virgin train ticket inspector only to be arrested for begging. His subsequent stand-up version of the event secured Tom several awards including the Chortle Best Show Award, and a nomination for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. This led on to a sell out national tour of the UK, the New Zealand Comedy Festival and prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.

His next project, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Letters for BBC Radio 4, tackling common consumer issues in his own hilarious way, won a highly acclaimed Sony Award for best Radio Comedy. Another BBC series, focusing on telephone conversations with his parents, aired last year.

He studied Electrical Engineering and Acoustics and worked in the telecommunications and satellite industry before caving in to friends' repeated requests to perform stand up comedy.

Critical Praise For Tom Wrigglesworth:
“Magical storytelling…hysterical” -Time Out
“pick of the festival…get a ticket. This is the best there is" - Steve Elgers, TV3 UK
