Tom is a regular voice on the radio having hosted The Tom Craine show on BBC Bristol for a year, co-hosted The Rhod Gilbert Show (BBC Radio Wales), and guested on BBC 6 Music, Absolute, and Radio 2, as well as winning Best Comedy & Drama at the BBC National Radio Awards.

As a stand up, Tom is a regular at the major UK venues and abroad, he has supported Rhod Gilbert, Alan Carr and Russell Kane on tour and has gained rave reviews (including Observer Critic’s Choice Edinburgh 2010, Spoonfed Rising Star 2010 and The Times Top 5 Picks Edinburgh 2010). After a sell-out run at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe (Critics Choice Edinburgh 2011 in The Times, Big Issue, Three Weeks and New Statesman), Jigsaw continued a meteoric debut year, and will be returning to the Edinburgh Fringe with their second show, Gettin Jiggy.
