Collywobblers Comedy Lockdown V2: Online: 2020
Tom Ward looks like the singer of one of my favourite indie bands The Inspiral Carpets. I saw him appear at Always Be Comedy in March 2018 and January 2019. The first time as he swaggered onto the stage armed with an incredible haircut, he proudly announced to the audience that it was not a wig. He then took off on a strange comedic trip bringing the crowd along for a jubilant ride. The second time I saw him, his ridiculous slant on life and brilliant way to convey a punchline was extremely refreshing and won the audience over who were left in helpless laughter.
Ward headlined the Collywobbles Comedy Lockdown V2 online gig in November 2020. His persona was one of frustration stuck in lockdown. He was exceptionally quick on his feet chatting to the audience and playing samples of songs asking them which was their favourite and then delivering hilarious responses. Ward has a exceptional and vivid gift to make an audience laugh.
