[1] About Thomas Benjamin Wild Esquire

Viral sensation Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. has been delivering his own brand of singalong, musical humour since 2016. The video for his sweary anthem ‘I’ve No More F***s To Give’ has been viewed over 11 million times on YouTube alone, and his debut album ‘Awkward Encounters While Walking My Dog’ reached number 3 in the Billboard Comedy Album Chart in 2019 making him a much sought after live act.

With banjolele in hand, Thomas takes inspiration from the wit and wisdom of the songwriters of the early-mid 20th century and combines them with punk rock sensibilities to create pithy songs full of catchy tunes and social and political commentary that speak volumes about the times we live in.

He has performed at venues and festivals across the UK and is a regular on the cabaret, burlesque and comedy circuits where audiences are left delighted by his humor, shrewd observations, charm and style. With a unique mix of original material, singalong classics and a sharp vintage wardrobe to match, his one man show is equally suited to large scale events or small, intimate settings.
