Tom Ward

Fee Band

A rising comedy star and ‘a very welcome curiosity’ according to the Telegraph. Both laid-back and whimsical, Tom’s routines cover everything from how Tupperware can let you down to what it’s like to have evangelical parents.


Tom Ward is an award-winning standup. His stories and observations, combining a sense of the whimsical with the deadpan, have made him a hit on the live circuit, including for his acclaimed Edinburgh show Anthem.

With a laid-back style that occasionally veers towards the quirky, Tom’s routines span his appearance, frustrations with the minutiae of life, like being let down by Tupperware, and tales of his evangelical parents and managing a charity shop. Applying his skills as a voice-over artist Tom also throws in the occasional impression (of people and objects).

Described by the Telegraph as ‘a very welcome curiosity’, he has supported Jack Whitehall, Sindhu Vee, Joe Lycett and Jason Manford on tour, as well as becoming a familiar face on screens - including appearances on Live at the Apollo, QI and Roast Battle. As a host, he recently fronted Funraisers for Channel 4 Digital, where contestants compete in challenges based in and around a charity shop.

We were joined at 87 Barts Close by three brilliant speakers on a panel that delved into the complex world of Artificial Intelligence. Over the hour our panellists de-mystified AI, speaking about AI’s immense promise for enhancing our lives, alongside the apprehension it has generated regarding job security, privacy infringement, and ethical considerations.
