Tom Deacon – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Tom Deacon, Chortle’s student comedian of 2007, has a professionalism and presence that belies his relative inexperience.

With slick stagecraft, bags of energy and some decent material to back it up with, he has quickly crafted a short set that wouldn’t look out of place on a professional bill.

He can expect a good reaction from most audiences, given his crowd-pleasing combination of talents, including material that goes below the belt without being tasteless, plus a rap delivered by an Australian with little to gripe about. Assured stuff all round.

Today's comedy-on demand picks


Stephen Fry, Marcus Brigstocke, Lucy Porter and Rachel Parris are taking part in a showcase from the Oxford Playhouse, alongside performers from other genres.

Not just a gig, the event has been written by comedian Kevin Day and directed by Simon Evans (not the comedian, but the man who directed David Tennant and Michael Sheen in BBC One’s lockdown comedy Staged).
