Stand up comedian - improviser - writer


Tom Young is a fresh, innovative stand-up and improvisational comedian from Leicestershire. Tom's work includes routines about his own appearance, superheroes, fairy tales, sport, dating, equality, fashion, mass media over-reactions, general silliness, and much more.

Tom studied Creative Writing at the University of Northampton, and was a regular performer with the university's improvised comedy group Indescriptable. Tom has also performed with Leicester's Unidentified Flying Improv group since January 2010, including performing in shows in four Leicester Comedy Festivals.

Now a well-seasoned improviser, in mid-2013, Tom founded The Same Faces, another Leicester-based improv group, for top quality players, and with more of a mindset towards performing around the country.

Tom has served as the regular compère for the Y Theatre's "Emergency!" Arts Night in Leicester, the Comedy Lab in Northampton, and currently hosts the We Are Most Amused gig in Northampton.

Tom is available for stand up bookings, as he is looking to develop new material to add to his repertoire.
