Welcome to Token Man Comedy.

Five cracking women – one pretty good bloke!

We present the best in female comedy and female comedians but because we think it’s important to be inclusive, we always have a chap on the bill and he’s always one of the good ones so fear not!

Reversing the zeitgeist of the traditional, box ticking girl, on most traditional comedy nights or game show panels, we thought it would be fun to see how it works the other way round.

We are very happy to be launching our night as part of the Twickenham Festival at fantastic Exchange Theatre in Twickenham, a lovely theatre space that is made for a wonderful audience experience and is a joy to perform in.  Come and join us!

ARIELLE SOUMA

"Arielle Souma is just what the comedy industry needs and should be forced upon every audience until they buckle under her spell"
_Frankie Boyle

« Her delivery is really strong and lively, she’s brilliant fun and totally commands the stage. She killed it and totally raised the roof. Clearly very accomplished, she just has it. »
_ The Stand Comedy Club

Arielle Souma dominates the stage! Big and bold with bags of sass and nice garnishes

SALLY FIRTH

Sally shouldn’t be here! She’s the mother of a young female comedian who is unable to make the gig. Anxious not to let anyone down, Sally does her set with hilarious results.
“Sally did a fantastic set, drove the audience wild” (Jason Why, promoter), “Very funny” (Matthew Baylis, comic, MC and promoter) “Lit up the stage” (Alastair Sadler, comic, MC and promoter) , “Sally is eminently likeable and the juxtaposition between content and delivery is a joy to watch. I've yet to see the character of "Sally" fail to win over audiences and keep them on her side throughout the journey that is her set. In short, smart, clever but most importantly funny." (Ray Davis, comic, MC and promoter)“The innocent-looking but sexually explicit Sian Doughty” (Johnny Glasgow, MC and comic.

THE DIRTY CAROLS

Remember that song you like? Well, The Dirty Carols have ruined it for you forever with their own funny, surreal, musical take on the songs you know and love. Be prepared for guffaws and perhaps a damp gusset (you, not us) as four gals sing a cappella about things that matter: pie fights, Woolworths’ pic’n’mix and why you should never keep mince in the bathroom. Bring your best laughing teeth and a change of pants.
Sandi Toksvig said of them: “These four women look so nice and yet they are filthy. Fortunately they are funny with it. I couldn't recommend them more heartily.”

LUKE TOULSON

Luke has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, been nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award, written for comedians on Mock The Week and Live at the Apollo, and regularly performs at the best comedy clubs across the UK.
