GLORIOUS MANAGEMENT PROUDLY PRESENT
TOM TOAL: HELP US TOM TOAL YOU’RE OUR ONLY HOPE
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016
PBH’S FREE FRINGE AT CIAO ROMA, 4:35PM, 6TH-27TH AUG
Amused Moose Awards nominee (Best Show),Tom Toal, is back at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year and he’s ready to save the day. Join this rising star and “master of storytelling” (Punchline) for his latest autobiographical tale on weddings, becoming a father, and love. A story about sacrifice and heroics, spend an hour in Toal’s company as he looks back at his greatest achievements in this new devastatingly funny and touching show.
In 2003, on the last day of secondary school, a prophecy was made that in 2016 Edinburgh would be destroyed. That is, unless Tom Toal sacrifices himself. In his last hour on this earth, Tom aims to put on the perfect show, recalling the highlights of his 29 years on this planet.
Having been a part of the prestigious Comedy Reserve (2013), Toal quickly rose through the ranks to become a well-loved and popular comic on the UK circuit. Known for his abilities to weave an intricate story, Tom is a master wordsmith. An Amused Moose Awards finalist for Best Show in 2014, Tom’s tales are a Fringe favourite. This is not a show to miss!
