Tom Deacon

2020 was set to be an exciting year for Tom as he was filming his first ever Standup Special. The show ‘Rapture’ was performed at the 2019 New Zealand comedy festival and was picked up to make after its success.

Tom sometimes can’t believe that this will be his 14th year performing stand-up around the UK and world. He’s loved every minute because his versatile and charming persona have led him to be a part of so many incredible things in the presenting world.

He has been performing live stand-up for the last 14 years – with four Edinburgh solo shows under his belt – and has been the host of his own TV, radio and online shows on BBC2, BBC Radio1, The Capital FM breakfast show, plus host of Gfinity Esports shows and YouTube football channel Copa90 – where his Eurofan escapades have notched up over 8 million views.

Tom has made guest appearances on BBC2’s The Rob Brydon ShowDave’s One Night Stand and ITV2’s Fake Reaction

He is currently the host of F1 Esports Pro Series . A journey into the world of Esports has led Tom to host on the Sky F1 channel for the first ever F1 sports tournament which took place during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix of 2017. Tom has hosted every year including the Virtual Grand Prix Series which drew a record breaking 30million views across TV and Digital platforms. The 2021 series will be back and bigger than ever.
