Thomas Green – MC
Green is as engaging as he is energetic, with a high-calibre stage presence and countless faces and voices that come through his standup. A former school teacher, Green swapped the whiteboard marker for a mic, and hasn’t looked back since. His knack for crowd-work and improvisation has seen him become a sought after MC (Midlands Best MC Award nominee 2018), building a reputation on the UK circuit as an interactive and cheekily abrasive comic.
Green began his career by selling out his first festival run in hometown Adelaide (2012), being nominated the following year for Best Emerging Comedy and since has only gone from strength to strength, selling out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe.
