Tom GK: Hearing Loss, The Musical!

Comedy / Cabaret
Scaled 2019 tom gk hearing loss
Are you pretending you're not losing your hearing? Six years ago, Tom GK had his dream job: reviewing everyone from Bob Dylan and Muse to Usher and Britney Spears for a national newspaper. The only problem was he had a secret: his hearing was rapidly deteriorating. During a Foo Fighters gig he finally accepted he had to seek help and swapped his life of guitars and notebooks for doctors, MRI scans and hearing tests. Now he's ready to tell his story ... and because every music critic in reality wants to be on stage, he's written a musical!

Tom GK grew up obsessed with music and became a successful music critic for London's Daily Telegraph. He then began losing his hearing and was diagnosed with a genetic disease, neurofibromatosis. He now writes and performs about it.
