Tom Short

I have been performing on the stand up circuit in a serious manner since January 2013.  My style includes anecdotes, a unique viewpoint being brought up in working class Salford, a view point not seen as regularly these days. I like to mix the mundaneness of television, pop culture icons of the 80s, 90s & present along with wicked one liners whilst weaving in and out of skits seamlessly. I am also adept at improvising and can break in and out of set easily to address the room; making each and every performance unique. I have got material that suits all ages and rooms and have no problem adapting to any room or audience.

My reviews have been favourable:

“there is real quality in his writing and he was thoroughly enjoyable.” – Notts Comedy Review

“Short was my pick of the night” – Now Then Magazine

 “genuinely funny physical comedy... as he ranged around from discussing pigeons, to miming dancing in a club, to funny skits about modern pop songs.” - Broadway Baby

'Short, is impossible not to love. – his awkwardness, in my opinion will be the source of his success. Short knows he’s awkward, geeky and desperately uncool, but that’s exactly what makes him, well, cool... definitely one to watch.'  - HopScotch Friday


John Cooper AKA Danny Pensive

"Original and unpredictable."
