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

Together they perform their unique and legendary theatrical comedy live shows.  The Thinking Drinker’s Guide to Alcohol, 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. The Thinking Drinkers: Around the World in 80 Drinks and Heroes Of Hooch played to sell-out crowds at theatres and festivals across the country. Once the Covid pandemic has ended they will take The Thinking Drinkers Pubquiz to theatres across the UK.

2021 will also see the release of their latest book The Thinking Drinkers Almanac.

They are in high demand as hosts for tasting sessions at corporate and business events around the world.

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