Bunbury Magazine – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tom Little is a rare brand of comedian. A comedian who takes an idea, no matter how old or new, and presents it without airs or graces. He presents it, then presents it again and again, taking the idea to its logical conclusion, past its limit and into a new dimension of hilarity.
Tom presents his comedic ideas with an energy and impact that is hard to ignore, not that you would want to. The focus he brings to the stage, both in his own intent and bringing the audience into his world, adds an intensity and urgency to his words as each laugh, each punchline rattles around the room.
This show is about his journey growing up, one long narrative which flips from childhood to adulthood, taking absurdist turns towards yoghurt in the classroom, Gary Brooker and protractors. There is much more going on as well but it would be remiss of me to post spoilers here. Tom uses repetition to its absolute highest, flipping jokes on their heads in an enviable manner.
Tom’s writing is absolutely incisive, intelligently written and delivered in a way that leaves the audience twisting and turning every time he pulls the unexpected from unexpected places.
