Tom and Tom are being transported to Australia this winter for crimes against comedy. Come and see if the wizrd of Aus will let them off once they get to Perth and Adelaide Fringe festivals... Come and cheer on their works-in-progress at The Tap Rooms:Tom Skelton's Macbeth, Hearing Loss - The Musical, and interlinked with extracts from the Toms' collaboration 'Did You Hear What I Saw?'

DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAW? (extracts of)

Tom and Tom have been best friends for 9,855 days and counting. They've walked miles through blizzards, run amok in city streets and been superheroes of the playground. Their amazing bond was strengthened as Tom Skelton lost his sight and Tom GK his hearing. This is their unique story of lasting friendship, with songs and silliness along the way.

TOM SKELTON'S MACBETH

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes… Tom finally gets the chance to put on his favourite Shakespeare play, but he only has one actor (himself), who’s registered blind and who might not know all his lines. A fiercely funny farce ensues, as ‘deliciously talented’ (Guardian) character comedy maverick Skelton presents his unique take on the Scottish play. ‘A wonderful narrator’ (Times). ‘Inventive and very enjoyable’ ★★★★ (Mirror). ‘An extremely clever one-man show that cries out for a bigger stage’ ★★★★ (EdFestMag).

TOM GK - HEARLING LOSS THE MUSICAL

Are you pretending you're not losing your hearing? Six years ago, Tom GK had his dream job: reviewing everyone from Bob Dylan and Muse to Usher and Britney Spears for a national newspaper. The only problem was he had a secret: his hearing was rapidly deteriorating. During a Foo Fighters gig he finally accepted he had to seek help and swapped his life of guitars and notebooks for doctors, MRI scans and hearing tests. Now he's ready to tell his story ... and because every music critic in reality wants to be on stage, he's written a musical!

Tom GK grew up obsessed with music and became a successful music critic for London's Daily Telegraph. He then began losing his hearing and was diagnosed with a genetic disease, neurofibromatosis. He now writes and performs about it.

Doors: 6:20pm. Show: 6:30pm
