Tom Toal is a comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London, which is famed for being the birthplace of Kate Bush…. and that’s it.
He performed his debut show On The Scrapheap about the break-up of his 6 year relationship at the Edinburgh and Leicester Festivals in 2010 and his follow up Rom-Coms and Revolutions goes to Edinburgh this year.
Tom performs heartbreaking but ultimately heart-warming material about life, love and what it is truly like to be Tom Toal in this crazy world.
