The Thinking Drinkers are award-winning drinks writers and comedy performers Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham.

Together they have also written and performed The Thinking Drinker’s Guide to Alcohol, a unique comedic drinking show that debuted at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe.

Following sell-out shows and excellent reviews, it returned to Edinburgh in 2012 and later transferred to the Soho Theatre. Their subsequent show The Thinking Drinker’s Guide to the Legends of Liquor sold out seasons at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014 and 2015.

Their latest show The Thinking Drinkers: Around the World in 80 Drinks played to sell-out crowds at the Great Yorkshire Fringe and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2016.  The show will transfer to London for an extended Christmas season at the Museum of Comedy in November.

Rumours that their success is down to the fact that every ticket holder is entitled to five free drinks remain unsubstantiated.
