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!
