“With a forceful delivery, backing up his  variety of somehow relatable surrealism, Tom takes audiences along on a wild ride! Definitely one to watch, with some strong audience interaction weaved into a set laced with call-backs, Tom brings something different to a comedy night, and leaves an impression on any audience.” – Neil Jollie – Hilarity Bites Comedy Clubs

“Lives up to his name as monarch of mirth” – Derbyshire Times

and Khalid Winter
Khalid Winter is a comedian from Manchester. A former archaeologist Khalid’s comedy contains sharp social observations delivered in a relatable manner using personal experiences.

with host Jonny Collins
An hour of jokes, musings and philosophies about gender, sexuality, and identity, from Blizzard Comedy’s own Jonny Collins. 11+ years in the game, they’re finally working on their first hour, delving into their own journey of self-discovery, the experiences of being a non-binary trans-femme individual in the modern day, and reflections on the very nature of how we perceive humanity.

“Jonny is a force of nature on stage. A whirlwind of hilarity with a unique viewpoint, they energy and passion personified.” – XS Malarkey
“Jonny Collins is deceptively rapid-fire, with a gag rate that would shame most one-line merchants. They can bring a simmer to a boil with ease, and make a huge mess of your kitchen.” – James Ross (Quantum Leopard)

As always, this show is free to book, with a pay-what-you-want option on the door by either cash or card.
