TOM BELL’S CITIZEN TEST

The new comedy game show where Brexit means Prizes!

Come wave a flag and cheer on two guest comedians as they compete in a series of elaborate tasks in order to win citizenship of Great Britain!

Featuring such “British” rounds as competitive queuing, writing passive aggressive notes to work colleagues and of course, trying to order some proper bloody food when abroad

With sing-a-longs and different guest comics every day; Citizen Test promises to be a show of jubilant, hilarious chaos.

Hosted by Tom Bell:
***** : Scotsman, Edinburgh Evening News, Fest
“Surreal Comedy at its best” (Scotsman)
“Joyful… never misses a beat” (Independent)

Inside the Comedian

I’ve recently guested on not one but TWO fine podcasts run by great comedians.

I was interviewed about my life in comedy by David Reed for his new, fake comedy interviews show “Inside the Comedian”

And talked about failed loves and “first times” on “Do You Remember The First Time” with Rosie Holt and Christian Talbot

Not Today (48 Hour Sci Fi Film Challenge)

Anyone up for a bleak sci fi short? Written & filmed all in one day for the 48 hour Sci Fi Film Challenge 2017. Thanks to my awesome team, Tom Watts, Sophia Del Pizzo, Harry Johns and were lucky enough to have Oli Langford score it with his top draw violin skills


<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/213241521″>Not Today</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/tomwattsdop”>Tom Watts</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

We got given the title Not Today, had to include the prop “someone winds up a clockwork toy” and the dialogue “why do I have to keep telling you the same thing over and over” and this is the depressing, yet thrilling result…

I’ve made an Escape Room! (actually it’s a van)

Something a little different on the horizon, for the last few months I’ve been designing an Escape Room and we are nearly ready to launch. Myself and two friends had the idea, after playing some great Escape Rooms in Prague, of making a mobile Escape Room in a van. Months, hard work and the purchase of a van later and our Houdini themed puzzle van will be making it’s debut for the whole 6 weeks of VAULT Festival near Waterloo Station

I’ll be manning it myself for some of the shows, details below,come along and get wrapped in chains and thrown in a van (in a good way)
