FUNNYMAN: Tom Wrigglesworth

First published in News

Direct from a sell-out run at last year’s Edinburgh festival, Tom Wrigglesworth is to perform at Chorley Little Theatre with an exquisite new show.

In turns heart-wrenching and hilarious, Utterly at Odds With the Universe takes Tom on an emotional journey from childhood to adulthood, exploring the poignant and profound relationship with his granddad.

The two used to tape themselves interviewing each other and it is in these early conversations that Tom comes to fully understand the influence this man has had on his own life and explores the fantasy of being able to make ‘one final interview’.

Expect elegant flourishes of language, twisted logic and whimsical storytelling, courtesy of one of the finest and most original comics in the UK.

Following the success of his Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated show, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Return Letter to Richard Branson, Tom has enjoyed two successful Radio 4 series (2011 and 2012) and scooped a prestigious Sony Radio Academy Award in recognition of excellence.

He will be heading to the Chorley’s Little Theatre on Saturday, March 15, as part of his third national tour.

Tickets are available form Malcolm’s Musicland, Chapel Street, Chorley.
