Artist, Comedian, Performer. Currently developing a solo show which merges stand-up comedy, contemporary but tedious autobiography and live nude showering.
My name is Tom Vinyl and I am an Artist, Comedian and Performer – well thats what I am saying over and over again online anyway. What this excessive title doesn’t tell you is that as of December 2014 I am based in Bristol, I am only 5 foot, 4 inches tall and I am also a Tennis coach.
I work both as a solo artist and as part of a performance collective called Daughters of Albion. Since graduating Falmouth University (formally and arguably better-ly Dartington College of Arts) I have developed a practice which straddles several performance mediums including Theatre, Performance Art, Film and Stand-Up Comedy.
My work is playful and comedic whilst occasionally exploring an aspect of my own life experience in great detail. I am mindful of aesthetic and the point at which the indivudual aspects of a performance enter the perception of an audience.
I am excited to now be based in Bristol and am currently developing a solo show which aims to merge stand-up comedy, performative autobiography and showers. Please get in touch if this idea sounds like it might exite you. If not please do check out my other projects alone and with Daughters of Albion at http://www.tomvinyl.co.uk/work_projects.html
