Melbourne International Comedy Festival: 2017 Best Show nominee and 2016 Best Newcomer winner. Award-winning-and-losing comedian Tom Walker returns to Edinburgh and this year, he's talking very little and moving very lot. Last year this trained clown taught himself to code gloriously stupid video games. This year - listen, I like you, I'll come out and use the dirty word: this is a mime show. Don't freak out. He talks during it, so it's chill, and it's ever so good. 'A gloriously, relentlessly, irrepressibly unhinged blast of off-the-wall insanity' ****½ (Chortle.co.uk). Directed by Zoe Coombs.
Tom Walker's show is largely mime (a genre he admits up top is comedy's least favourite child), mixed with audience interaction, a fair bit of speech and a brilliant use of sound cues. He bounces from short skits to longer narrative sketches - some cheerful, some dark, some graphically sexual - in a glorious hour of laughter as he transforms into an old lady who accidentally kills animals, disposes of a body and has an affair with a coat.
