Luke Toulson


Luke needed to really put it out of the bag to win a really tough competition in Bedford.

It was big night but he surfed the waves of audience laughter.

Luke regularly performs at the biggest and best comedy clubs in the country, he has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News and written for comedians appearing on Mock The Week and Live at the Apollo.

“Toulson’s skill and speed of improvisation is hugely impressive. He has a natural talent for banter which is a step above the norm” Chortle
