* Tom Skelton: Blind Man's Bluff *
Could you see the funny side to going blind? Join visionary British improv and character comedy maverick Tom Skelton as he confronts losing his sight in his early twenties, through sketch, silliness and storytelling. Along the way Skelton takes you on a wild, surreal gallop through the history of blindness. The most famous VIPs (Visually Impaired People!), from Samson to Stevie Wonder, tell their tales in this blindingly riotous one-man romp. The 'must see' show of 2019. 'Deliciously talented' (Guardian) 'A wonderful narrator' (Times) 'An extremely clever one-man show that cries out for a bigger stage' '''' (Ed Fest Mag). After many successful seasons at Edinburgh Fringe, Perth Fringe World and Adelaide Fringe, Tom is looking forward to his Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut ! Tom is a character comedian and improviser, who happens to be visually impaired, and he is bringing his Edinburgh smash-hit, Blind Man's Bluff, to Melbourne for the very first time.. He's had four other solo smashes at Edinburgh, Perth and Adelaide:: Blind Eye Spy, 2061, Foolball and Tom Skelton's One-man Macbeth . He stars in Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes, works with the BAFTA-winning History Bombs and is a founding member of UK improv comedy sensations Racing Minds ('crafted by the gods of comedy' - Three Weeks). He is also about to start perforning with Melbourne improv giants The Big Hoo Ha! 'This is the only show I've ever been in where a latecomer with a guide dog was booed, albeit all in good fun...sends you back out into the world with a spring in your step' (chortle.co.uk) 'Inventive and very enjoyable' '''' (Mirror, UK) 'Exceptionally funny, clever and original' (Weekend Notes) 'Undoubtedly funny' (The West Australian) 'An extraordinary performer' (ripitup.com.au Adelaide) 'Makes the audience break down with laughter' (EdFringeReview, UK) 'A kaleidoscope of costumes, an inexhaustible array of accents and a delightful skirmish of tongue-in-cheek references' (The Young Perspective, UK)
