Welcome to Token Man Comedy.

3 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 at the 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!

Among others: The Stand Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle, Yes Bar Glasgow, Beehive Edinburgh, Breakneck Aberdeen, Hampstead Comedy Club London, Gags on the Green Peterborough; Stand Up on the Strand in Kent, Wine Gums in Cambridge; The International, Dublin.

Personally political comedy. ‘An extremely sharp, caustic sense of humour and a very wicked streak.’ Despite all appearances to the contrary, Baram is "that" friend, who whispers bad ideas into your ear and has you constantly exclaiming "I can't believe you said that!"

Now a multi award winning act, Mad Ron also finished 3rd in the prestigious 2019 NATY’s. Not content with that Mad Ron has decided to expand his criminal comedy empire to the UK comedy festivals, having very successful runs at the Leicester, Cambridge, Telford, Hastings and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals. Mad Ron has now become a regular face on the London comedy scene popping up at clubs like The Stand_Up Club in Piccadilly, Backyard Comedy Club, Top Secret and Downstairs at the Kings Head to name a few. Amid his threatening manner, this unapologetic wrong’un bemoans such new fangled developments as vaping or email, and has amusingly intolerant lines to explain why. It’s a well-constructed, well-practised set providing a dependable, gag-focussed start to the night….. – Steve Bennett (Chortle)
