Two washed-up young drifters wait by the road for a man they’ve never met, hoping against all proof that now, as night closes in and their patter runs dry, they may finally catch a break. Over the bare horizon, a figure leads another on a leash. Can this be what they are waiting for? Totally Tom, Edinburgh comedy favourites and stars of Live at the Electric, bring sharp-eyed, contemporary character-comedy to this timeless vision of life as a horrifying joke.
TOTALLY TOM (Tom Stourton and Tom Palmer) made their name with the hit viral video, High Renaissance Man before being nominated for Edinburgh Foster’s Comedy Award in 2011. Stars of BBC Three’s Live at the Electric and E4’s Comedy Lab, they continue to perform sell-out shows across the country.
