There are many a comic out there, seems now there are more than ever. Tom Bell is one, and in my chequered ten years in this job he’s consistently one of the very best I have ever seen. He’s a stand-out stand-up, creative, with a markedly fluent and authentic voice.

This maybe weird for some to read such out and out online man love but any embarrassment is worth it if a few more people have their heads turned his way.

If you see him billed, go see. If you are in Edinburgh this year, go see.

Tom Bell. Very Bloody Good.
