Always Be Comedy (4 shows): The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2018
Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
To date I have seen comic Tom Deacon compere the Always Be Comedy showcase four times in 2018: once in March, twice in September, once in November 2018 and then again in March 2019.
On every occasion, Deacon was an instant hit with the audience effortlessly creating funny routines from chatting with the crowd. The set pieces he also delivered were tight, sharp and very funny. He can pick a member of the audience and run with whatever is spoken about creating comedy as he goes. It was a rare gift to see the meandering comedian easily diverted from what he is talking about or creating funny routine from one word or sentence. Deacon has a very amiable presence; he was an extremely easy-going host for the show and a pleasure to watch his compering skills and comedy.
