About Us

Welcome to The Den Agency, a London based comedy agency run by Tom Hopewell and Adam Woulds.

With over 15 years of experience in the entertainment industry, we work with a host of music festivals, comedy clubs, schools and sport venues, providing comedy content for a variety stages around the country.


Tom started as music agent in 2004, booking tours and festivals for bands internationally. During his time in music, he worked as a national promoter (tour, show and festival booking) and at a tech start up, working with artists, venues and festivals. He also co-promoted the highly successful ‘Comedy Calling’ night in Camden for 5 years while working as a consultant for a variety of different entertainment companies.


Adam previously worked for one of the global leader’s in talent management and event promotion, booking for some of the biggest names in comedy. He has also run the Happy Shark Comedy Club for 7 years, building a reputation as one of the UK’s best clubs for acts and audience members alike.


The premise is simple – you want comedy at your festival, yet you don’t know the right acts to book or how to get in contact. We do. Working with The Den Agency will prove to be a cost-effective way of populating your stages.

We know the demands and understand the varying demographics of live events. Using our combined knowledge of the UK festival market and the comedy sector, we offer any festival a bespoke solution.

We are proud partners with IFF International Festival Forum

Bespoke Events

We specialise in working alongside schools, PTA’s and sports clubs to produce high quality and enjoyable stand up comedy nights to raise funds for your organisation.

Parents, supporters or local residents will be very excited by the idea of a local comedy night, that allows them to support you financially while having a great night out.

Having worked alongside the biggest acts in the comedy industry, as well as promoting and producing live music and comedy events, from small club shows right up to arenas and festivals – we are here to help you host a memorable evening for all.


Our priority is to work with and for the comedian, guiding each on their own unique path. We have a genuine passion for comedy and strive to ensure these values are the core foundation of how we work.
