In between these Tom performed with friend Tom Allen as part of Allen And Wrigglesworth. Tom has played comedy clubs all round the country and has now stepped up to nationwide tours of his own.

Tom Wrigglesworth is an established Stand-Up comedian, Radio and TV presenter and voice-over artist from Sheffield, England.

He is best known for his live storytelling shows and BBC Radio comedy programmes which take a comical and emotional look at family relationships.

Alongside his comedy work, he’s used his engineering background to become a natural and engaging presenter for BBC Television and The Discovery Channel.

He is also known for his uncanny resemblance to record breaking Quarter-Back Aaron Rodgers. Tom visited Green Bay to meet his doppleganger and a short movie by NFL Films covering his trip became a viral Youtube hit.

At his most experimental, Tom wrote a letter to Richard Branson to complain about a Virgin Trains manager who took his job far too seriously and ultimately got Tom arrested. There was a happy ending though as Tom was given a Good Samaritan award!

He made his TV debut on Paramount Comedy's The World Stand's Up and performed on the television series The Comedy Store - also for Paramount Comedy. On radio he's been a panellist on BBC Radio Wales comedy show Jest a Minute, performed on BBC Radio 2's Out To Lunch and Channel 4 Radio's The Tube.

He has also been a regular sidekick on BBC Radio Wales weekend flagship show The Rhod Gilbert Show and presented BBC Radio 7's Comedy Club in January 2010.

His hard work comes across in his comedy which throws in laughs all through a story, not just at the end.
