Tommy and the Weeks are Tom Bell, a cardigan-wearing daydreamer, and Ed Weeks, a brash, power-suited lothario. Their shows are a joyous mix of insults, songs
and audacious, hilarious sketches.
Off the back of their second Edinburgh show, they were commissioned in-house at the BBC to write a sitcom script based on their double-act dynamic, and a sketch show pilot for The Comedy Unit. They have also recorded a Radio 4 pilot, and have most recently written and performed VT inserts for 'Dick and Dom's Funny Business' on BBC1.
“May become a future great British double act, carrying on the
tradition from where other greats such as Morecambe & Wise and Reeves & Mortimer have left off.” The Guardian
“Dizzyingly inventive... this is a landscape where the sublime and
the ridiculous don't just meet, they fall in love and have babies.”
