About Tom Mayhew

Tom Mayhew is a critically acclaimed comedian, whose material about being working-class – mixing the personal and the political, with the punchline-rate of a one-liner comic – sets him apart from any other act on the circuit. His 2019 Edinburgh show I, Tom Mayhew, about being someone in their 20s living on benefits in austerity Britain, received 4 and 5 star reviews across the board, and transferred to a sell-out Soho Theatre run. It then led to a Radio 4 series being commissioned off the back of it, Tom Mayhew is Benefit Scum, which led to The Daily Mail describing Tom as “a Tory-hating lefty” while also giving the show 4 stars. Mad.

He has written for The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4), NewsJack (BBC Radio 4 Extra) and performed comedy on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra.
