Scripts & Giggles: Descent & Tom Rosenthal

14th July | The Cockpit 

We’re teaming up with our regular compere and brilliant stand-up comedian Tom Rosenthal to bring you a night of two halves; a pair of comic shorts (ha!) followed by a preview of Tom’s Edinburgh Festival show.

As an asteroid storms towards Earth, two news anchors give YOU the inside scoop on the imminent end of the world.

Act Two | Tom Rosenthal | благодаря

Tom Rosenthal (C4’s Friday Night Dinner, ITV2’s Plebs, his mirror) was nominated for Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards and won the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year.

He has done televised comedy on a stage (Dave’s One Night Stand) and behind a table (8 out of 10 Cats). He went to Bulgaria. Let him tell you about it whilst you drink.
