actor and satirist; man behind the satirical character Jonathan Pie
Tom Walker is the man behind the satirical character Jonathan Pie, a frustrated news reporter known for venting his spleen in unguarded ‘off-camera’ rants. Pie’s online videos have been viewed by millions worldwide, and his fanbase continues to grow. He was recently described by The Herald as ‘arguably the UK’s sharpest political satirist since John Oliver’, and by Rory Bremner as ‘the most exciting satirical creation since Partridge’.
The recent nationwide tour of Jonathan Pie: Live culminated in a sell-out performance at the London Palladium in March. Tom will be touring a new show, Jonathan Pie: Back to the Studio, in early 2018. He is the co-author of Jonathan Pie: Off The Record.
