Rob Thomas

“Rob Thomas whipped up the sober crowd with his jokes” Evening Standard

Rob Thomas is a quirky, energetic, storytelling comic currently racing up the comedy ladder like a squirrel on Red Bull. The Guardian’s Bruce Dessau called him “strongest performer of the night” with a “superior physical presence” and The Yorkshire Times deemed him “a triumph!” with “tremendous relentless physicality”. Rob has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Leicester Square Theatre with the likes of Milton Jones, Jo Brand and Stewart Lee, and is as comfortable in front of a packed theatre as he is in the upper room of a local pub. He got the silver medal in the UK Pun Championships 2015, the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2014 award and the Montreux Comedy Festival New Act (UK Region) for 2014 and 2015. In short, he’s funny.
