I, Tom Mayhew. Tom Mayhew

Tom Mayhew (BBC New Comedy Award semi-finalist 2018) was unemployed for three years from the age of 18. This is a story of rejections, the JobCentre, being working class, and fighting for your place in the world. With lots of jokes. This show explores what its really like for someone in their twenties in 2019. While some seem to think we have it all, the reality is that many of us can't afford to move out of our parents' place. 'His content is from the heart; spellbinding, raw and telling... a genuine joy to watch' (Kate Copstick).

British Comedy Guide recommendation

A show about a topic rarely discussed at the Fringe: the challenges associated with being working class. Tom Mayhew talks passionately about the subject, whilst maintaining a high gag rate throughout. He may have a quiet persona, but the messages in the show are loud and clear.
