Tom's show is out of this world

Worcester Editorial 7th Apr, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

DIRECT from a sell-out run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, award-winning comedian Tom Wrigglesworth is set to raise plenty of laughs at Huntingdon Hall in Worcester this week.

His exquisite show, Utterly at Odds With the Universe, takes Tom on an emotional journey from childhood to adulthood, exploring the poignant and profound relationship with his grandad.

The two frequently taped themselves interviewing each other and it is in these early conversations that 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.

Following the success of his Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated show, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Return Letter to Richard Branson, Tom has enjoyed two successful Radio 4 series (2011 and 2012) and scooped a prestigious Sony Radio Academy Award in recognition of excellence.

In 2013 Tom wrote and performed another new series for Radio 4, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Hang-ups, which has been commissioned for a second series, along with a one-off special of Utterly At Odds with the Universe.

On television, Tom recently co-presented BBC 2`s Engineering Giants and was one of the presenters on BBC2 series Electric Dreams. In stand-up terms, Tom has performed twice on Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Russell Howard`s Good News and The Comedy Gala for BBC Three as well as The World Stand`s Up, two series of The Comedy Store and Edinburgh and Beyond – all for Comedy Central.

Tom Wrigglesworth performs at Huntingdon Hall on Friday (April 11) at 8pm. Tickets are £12 or £10 for concessions. To book call the Box Office on 01905 611427.
