Tony Hawks

TV and radio comedian and bestselling author

Tony Hawks is a TV and radio comedian and bestselling author.

Tony began his career when he formed the musical comedy trio Morris Minor and the Majors. Their success peaked when their comedy record ‘Stutter Rap’ reached number 4 in the UK charts and number 1 in Australia. At gigs Tony can still be persuaded to perform an acoustic version of his ‘hit’.

He has appeared frequently on TV comedy programmes such as, Have I Got News For You, They Think It’s All Over, and more recently QI. In the past he made numerous TV appearances including A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Red Dwarf.

Tony is a regular guest on radio 4’s top comedy programmes Just a Minute, and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and The Unbelievable Truth

He is the author of Round Ireland with a Fridge – the story of his absurd quest to hitch round the circumference of Ireland within a month… with a fridge. After being serialised on Radio 4, the book became a top 10 Sunday Times bestseller.   It has now sold over 800,000 copies worldwide including the US and Australia, and has been translated into Chinese, Hebrew, Italian, Dutch and German.

Tony has written five other books, Playing the Moldovans at Tennis (also serialised on BBC R4 and shortlisted for both the Samuel Johnson Prize (2000) for non-fiction writing and the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize (2000), One Hit Wonderland, A Piano in the Pyrenees, The Fridgehiker’s Guide To Life and his latest Once Upon A Time In The West Country (which tells the story of how he and his partner Fran uproot from London and settle in a small Devonian village, and attempt to integrate themselves.)

He produced and starred in the film versions of his two books Round Ireland With A Fridge and Playing the Moldovans at Tennis – the latter of which is donating all profits to The Tony Hawks Centre for children with cerebral palsy in Chisinau, Moldova. (Tony received an MBE for his work in Moldova in 2017).

Tony has also given two Ted talks – at TedX Chisinau, Moldova and TedX Munich, Germany.

Tony Hawks is a regular after dinner speaker at corporate events up and down the country and his warm, dry style and aptitude for ad-libbing makes him a popular choice as a host for award ceremonies. He hosted The British Book Awards (The Nibbies) for three consecutive years, as well as numerous others.

Tony’s versatility means that he can provide a number of options: humorous after dinner speech (stand-up based), humorous after dinner speech (story-telling and anecdotes based around his travels), hosting of awards ceremonies or linking conferences, plus the option of a hilarious inter-active game show called ‘Trust The Bucket’ involving lots of fun audience participation.  Another optional extra is that Tony can – having begun his career as a musician – play and sing a fun set of covers in the bar at then end of the night, accompanying himself on either electric piano or guitar.
