Tom Lenk Interview | Wyburn & Wayne


Holy Cow Poo... We got to chat with Tom Lenk, you know the guy who played Andrew in Buffy The Vampire Slayer!! Only the best show that ever was!! Since Buffy he's been busy making films, doing shows and taking Instagram by storm! You MUST check out his Instagram http://instagram.com/tommylenk

We love your Instagram posts, so funny, so when do we get The Tom Lenk show? 

I actually just started taking meetings to do just that! People have been begging for it! It's time to give them what they want!  I can't wait to unleash my PASHUN For low price HI FASHUNS to the global television community! 

Of the stars you recreate in your videos and photos have any responded to you? I actually think Adele would love it.

I got WERD through a friend that Lena Dunham enjoyed her LEWK. And I was WERKING with Busy Phillips last week and asked her which of her red carpet LEWKS I should do and she suggested the red Vice Principals premiere dress!


Let's talk Andrew! What was it like being part of a mega show like Buffy The Vampire Slayer? 

It was a dream! What else can I say?  

Do you still hang out with any of the cast?

Yes I still hang out with many of my Buffy pals. And sometimes we even make MEWVIES together with Joss! Did you see Much Ado?! If not check it out. I think even Shakespeare purists will love it! And I think there's even a moment that teachers might have to stand in front of the TV for when it plays in classrooms! YAAASSS! So cheeky! I even had a ladies night out with SMG (pic on IG) to the Hollywood Bowl to see the Little Mermaid concert. I may have cried JUST A LITTLE at Sarah Bareilles GORJUS rendition of Part of Your World. 


Buffy is still hugely popular today what do you think the appeal was and still is?

Drama meets Comedy. Action meets story. Emotions meets Monsters. It had everything and lovingly referenced pop culture while becoming a huge part of pop culture in its own right! 

Film, tv, stage... Where are you most comfortable performing?

As with FASHUN, I am comfortable in any medium. I am a quadruple threat: acting, singing, light movement, and now I make my own wardrobe. I spent a good portion of last year performing BUYER and CELLAR (which is a one man, 1-hour-and-45-minute-no intermish-play) on the east coast. After memorizing 60 pages word for word and performing 8 times a week I fee like I can do anything these days! Except magic. Don't make me do magic tricks. I don't want to watch magic. Or try to do it. Or listen to someone describe a magic trick in order to persuade me to like watching magic tricks. Just tell me how it's done, otherwise I'm not interested ok?!!



So any plans to do a show in the UK? Any WestEnd Shows you'd like to star in?

I'm supposed to take LenkLewkLive to NYC this December and would LOVE to go back and perform in London. I did my last show Nerdgasm at the Soho Theater in London before I took it to the Fringe and had TR BEST TIME! 


Ok.. Choose one..
Buffy or Angel? 
Buffy. How is this even a question?! 
Clinton or Trump?
Clinton! AGAIN, how is this even a question?! 
Madonna or Gaga?
There real question is who would Eddy Monsoon choose?! Madge OBVS. 
Bieber or Bloom?
BLOOM Obviously for elvish reasons.  
Katy or Taylor?
Katy. We're both from the 805 area code so i want a California girl on my squad. Plus she drinks beer on a paddle board. Who doesn't love that?!

Finally if you could have your portrait made from something you love, maybe your favourite food, what would it be? Here's some of Nathan's previous work...

Jesus these are amazing and hilarious. I love tacos?! Is that doable?

The Addams Family | Wyburn and Wayne Cardiff Times

Frightfully Fabulous Family Time! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Cooler than the Kardashians, more twisted than the Trumps, The Addams Family have descended upon Cardiff Bay for twelve nights of music and mischief on their UK tour of the Hit musical.
Even before the show started I was in awe of the ghoulishly gothic and gorgeous set and then the lights dimmed, the fingers start snapping and the magic begins as the kookiest family of them all take to the stage. The Addams Family have graced our TV and cinema screens for over 50 years and this production has a perfectly cast ensemble to play the iconic death obsessed family that everyone loves. Les Dennis is fantastic as Uncle Fester, he has some great numbers in the show and his lovable character brings much giggles. Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely are superb as Morticia & Gomez, they pay great tribute to every actor before them that played these roles possessing all the chemistry and charisma that made these parents the most devilish yet deliciou…

Crazy For You

Gershwin, Glamour & Glitz! Crazy For You is a Glorious Hit!
Cardiff went crazy for Crazy For You Tuesday night at The Wales Millennium Centre. Featuring probably the most talented ensemble ever to grace a stage, these guys act, sing, dance and if that ain't enough provide the music to the Gershwin brothers beloved score. 
It's clear why Tom Chambers stole the show and the prize on BBC Ones Strictly Come Dancing, like the energiser bunny on acid he dances with pace, grace and the stamina of an athlete while singing those big Gershwin numbers. He's charismatic and hugely entertaining as Bobby Child and there's great onstage chemistry between him and Charlotte Wakefield (Polly Baker). Big surprise of the night goes to Caroline Flack who's voice was beautiful, strong and convincing in the fabulous role of broadway vamp Irene Roth.  Crazy For You has it all, the big numbers, slickly choreographed routines and lots of laughs. The scene between Chambers and Neil Ditt …

Emeli Sande with support Calum Scott

On friday 21st October 2017, Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena was entertained by one of the UK's best selling artists of the past decade, Emeli Sande, and her incredible support act, Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott.

The arena was full and the atmosphere electric. Britain's Got Talent alumni Calum Scott opened the show, with high energy, crisp & powerful vocals serenading Cardiff with some of his own tracks from his up coming debut album. A personal highlight being his next single "You Are The Reason" which was both emotional and captivating, alongside a surprise cover to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. Of course the crowds went wild as he thanked them for and quote "one of the best gigs I've ever done!" And continued to belt out the hit that started his career "Dancing On My Own". Calum is without a doubt an artist to watch out for over the coming years - raw talent.

Emeli Sande... one woman, one voice (not too discredit her a…
