Tom Skelton Blind Man's Bluff (United Kingdom)

Flash in the Can

Tom Skelton Blind Man's Bluff (UK)

Visionary character maverick (and registered bilnd guy) Tom Skelton gallops through the history of famous VIPs (Visually Imparied People). From Samson to Stevie Wonder, Tom tells their tales and the story of his own sight loss in a blindingly riotous show. 

Tom Skelton is a character comedian and improviser, who happens to be registered blind. He’s had four smash hits at Edinburgh: Blind Eye Spy, Blind Man’s Bluff, Foolball and 2061. He also stars in Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes, works with the BAFTA-winning History Bombs and is a founding member of UK improv comedy group Racing Minds.

'The only show I've ever been in where a latecomer with a guide dog was booed, albeit all in good fun.' Chortle (UK) 

'Inventive and very enjoyable.' The Mirror (UK)

'Deliciously talented.' The Guardian

'Exceptionally funny.' WeekendNotes

'A skilled comedian, with an impressive knack for improvisation and character voices.' The West Australian
