Originally from Maidenhead, Berkshire, Aid Thompsin has been working the London circuit for around four years now. His style mixes an accessible, observational delivery with punk-rock attitude - all vomited against the backdrop of everything from his parents' divorce to narcotic use to sucking at menial jobs. Rant-storytelling, grungey stand-up.
It's this exciting, no-holds-barred, "I Call Bullshit" mentality that has earned the praise of highly regarded promoters like Noel Faulkner (Comedy Cafe) and Alfie Noakes (We Are Funny Project); while electrifying audiences in Edinburgh as part of the Joking Aside roster and headlining haunts like Comedy Cirque (Hoxton), TNT Comedy (Kentish Town), Dirty Dicks (The City) and many more.
In April 2015, Thompsin sold out the Leicester Square Theatre to film his one-hour show "#Eardiot", an exploration of both his life to-date, and of human beings in general, their hypocrisies and paradoxical behaviours. The show is available for free on YouTube here.
Prior to that, he started and continues to run The Panda Riot - a fair-pay, self-proclaimed, stand-up "record label" - with a commitment to showcasing raw talent, perhaps too ranty or controversial for the Apollo or Panel Show mainstream. The Panda Riot comprises of a monthly semi-pro live show, a weekly open-mic session and producing of one-hour shows, similar to #Eardiot. The next one of these will be Tom Holmes' much anticipated "Die Doing What You Love" in Autumn 2015.
Thompsin regularly appears in productions by Socially Transmitted Comedy (50,000 followers), and Wonky Zombie (5,000 YouTube views) and writes for Chortle, The Kentish Towner and The Huffington Post.
"Aid Thompsin is a hilarious man. His quirky yet relatable jokes always leave an audience of mine in floods of laughter. I’ve had Aid on the Chuckle&Hoot stage for three gigs, one as an MC, and he has never let me down. He’s a great guy to work with, both in character and professionally. I would recommend Aid to a fellow comedy promoter for their gigs and I would happily take my friends along to watch him!" - Faye-Louise Cooper, Chuckle & Hoot.
“A relentless stream of hilarity; a routine so brilliantly paced that by the end, my jaw was locked and my belly ached. It seemed to be over in five minutes – brilliant!”" - Adam Spreadbury Maher, Olivier Award winning Director.
"One of the hardest working guys on the circuit..." - Alfie Noakes, We Are Funny Project
"Great material..." - Noel Faulkner, Comedy Cafe.
Winner - "I Am Funny Award", We Are Funny, Sept 2013.
