'Scoutmaster' Tomás Ford’s came a cropper last night, with a very public meltdown suddenly making his midlife crisis very visible.

Until then, scout camp had been tons of fun; the sky’s been clear for stargazing, everyone learnt a bunch of new knots - some kids even got to go canoeing. But, as is often the case with Tomás Ford, things got weird.

Tonight he’s invited you all to gather around the campfire for a ukulele singalong. He’s got a bunch of new comedy folk songs to show everyone… and he’s promised a couple of the volunteer Dads that he’ll try to talk to the kids about what happened.

Tomás has spent almost two decades building a reputation for his one-of-a-kind alternative cabaret shows. His unpredictable shows, full of twisted humour and ragged synthpop have made him a fixture of the Edinburgh Fringe and festivals around the world. But that’s no excuse for what happened.

However, tonight, he'll be singing his little songs in a much more vulnerable mode, with his unamplified voice accompanied only by ukulele. So, pull up a campchair around his (pretend) bonfire and enjoy the serenity... while he tries to explain what really happened.

"Campfire Ukulele Torture continues the same demented exploration of the psyche of the eponymous characters he has created... by the time he’s finished with us, we’re forgiving his failures, cheering his successes – and getting what he’s on about.” - David Zampatti, Seesaw
