Tom O’Connor has become a household name through the realms of television, hosting his own shows Tom O’ Connor, Wednesday At Eight, Night Out At The London Casino, London Night Out, The Tom O’Connor Show and The Tom O’Connor Roadshow.
He has emerged as one of the most popular entertainers in the country and one of Britain’s funniest stand up comedians.
Tom was born in Bootle, Merseyside. His father was a docker and it was in Liverpool that Tom, whilst working as a maths teacher and assistant headmaster at St Joan of Arc School in Bootle, develop his unique comedy routines. "I actually started my show business career as a singer and would have been quite happy doing that but I soon found out that comedians got paid more money than singers so I gradually introduced comedy into my act and concentrated on talking to the audience about people, and observing life. Real life can be very funny. It really took off from there".
In 1974, Tom became a professional entertainer and he hasn’t looked back since.
Tom is in constant demand for corporate functions both here and abroad and his client list includes many multi-national companies where his ability to mix with and relate to people from every station in life from the M.D. to the tea lady, coupled with his hilarious and scrupulously clean material, has placed him firmly at the top of the Premier division of after dinner speakers.
