A popular children’s entertainer from West Sussex has launched a competition to name his newest addition to his show.

Tom Hunter, better known to many children and their parents as Tomfoolery, is always looking to ring the changes in his performances and he couldn’t turn down the latest addition to the Tomfoolery team.

He explained: “I discovered Monkey on the street busking for bananas, dreaming of entering Britain’s Got Talent!

“We started talking and in no time we really hit it off. Before long we’d put together an act and we’ve already started performing at children’s parties across Sussex.”

“I am currently in talks with his agent (his mum), but the chances are he will be joining me on stage when we take the Beans on Toast show to The Capitol Studio in October.”

Tomfoolery added: “The only problem is ‘Monkey’ doesn’t have a name yet and that’s where you come in. Can you come up with an original name that best describes this cheeky chappie (Monkey that is, not me!).”

The best name will be used in Tomfoolery shows everywhere and the creator will receive a fun prize hand delivered by Tomfoolery to the winner’s door.

To make a suggestion, go to and post a name.

The closing date for the competition is Monday, July 28, 2014.
