Tom Binns is the star and co-writer of the BBC 1 Friday Night Comedy Show Hospital People featuring Ian D Montfort as the Hospital Porter and Psychic Healer, along with Hospital Radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury and three additional characters, all played by himself.
Tom has now gone into the world of ventriloquism, performing under his own name, with a number of family characters including his dad, mum, wife, sons & daughters and various other puppets, all part of this hilarious routine.
He is also an award-winning and critical acclaimed character comedian working the International Comedy Festivals and the UK Stand Up Comedy Circuit, having arguably earned more five-star reviews than any other comedian.
He’s been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award, MySpace Comedy Award and Perth Fringe Comedy Award (twice).
He’s a “Fosters Comedy God”, he’s won Best International Act at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe (twice), Nottingham Comedy Festival and 3 Sony Gold Awards. He’s also Midlands Comedian of the Year in the UK.
Tom has been in BBC Shows Alan Partridge, Lee and Herring, Friday/Saturday Night Armistice and Channel 4 shows IT Crowd and Drifters and the film Going to Mecca.
‘The show is a spectacular tour-de-force, showcasing Binns’ exceptional acting and comedic talent.’
