Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer Award nominees Totally Tom return to the Edinburgh Fringe with a brand new sketch show after a total sell-out run in 2011.
Ever wondered what really goes on in prison? Then you should watch Louis Theroux's documentary on prisons. For some lighter entertainment watch Totally Tom's show (also set in a prison). We follow the journey of a wrongfully incarcerated genius and the characters he encounters along the way.
The duo - Tom Palmer and Tom Stourton - have enjoyed a meteoric 12 months since their debut show was shortlisted for the premier prize in comedy last year, creating the Totally Tom Comedy Lab for Channel 4, appearing in new BBC3 sketch show Live at the Electric and racking up individual credits including Alan Partridge's Mid-Morning Matters. They also created the Dean & MIDU series for BBC Comedy online, as well as hosting a sell-out residency, Totally Tom & Friends, in London.
Totally Tom debuted in 2010 after their YouTube creation, High Renaissance Man - created by the pair at university - notched up almost 750,000 views. They were immediately approached by Steve Coogan's production company Baby Cow to develop ideas for a Comedy Lab, which aired to acclaim in 2011, whilst their debut show at the Edinburgh Fringe last year culminated in a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer Award nomination.
