A Work In Progress
The show explores what it is like for someone in their 20s in 2019. While some seem to think we have it all, the reality is that many of us can't afford to move out of our parent's place.
Tom Mayhew is a stand-up comedian, writer, podcaster and actor. He covers many topics in his stand-up, including pansexuality, being working-class and mental health. He likes to write stand-up that is a mix of the brutally honest and the ridiculous.
Tom won The Comedy Store's King Gong in 2016, was a finalist for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017, and reached the BBC New Comedy Award Semi-Finals in 2018, which was recorded live at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra.
He has performed comedy for BBC Radio 1, and written for Newsjack (BBC Radio 4 Extra). Tom also presents the 'The 18% Podcast', which was launched in November 2018. It explores the relationship between class and art, and sees him interviewing a wide range of working class artists and industry creatives.
"It's a fascinating brain he's got in there, with as much of this distinctive hour spent trying to solve the riddle of Mayhew as it is him making you laugh." - Chortle
"Tom Mayhew’s charmingly awkward persona hides a fantastic alternative comic mind. His jokes are sharp, never predictable and consistently land." - Broadway Baby
"His content is from the heart....spellbinding, raw and telling. He is a genuine joy to watch." - Kate Copstick
