Thomas

My name is Thomas Cock. I was born In Congo but raised in Belgium. I lived innocent days till we started English classes at school and discovered the meaning of my name… I immediately switched to Spanish. After, I think I just kept the rhythm of changing and exploring new paths. I moved to Montreal where I became humorist and performed at JUST FOR LAUGH, to Paris, where I was an actor, to Brussels where I did my first One Man Show, to San Francisco where I worked for NGOs. There, I really discovered how laughing could heal. Laughing was such a journey so far and when 2 years ago, the customs officer reading my passport said: “it is a pity, to a letter close, you were Thomas Cook”. “Such a pity!” then I realized maybe… And from a Laugh to love, I started to organize Food tours in Lisbon and now gathering all my passions: Comedy dinners!

Where you'll be

Home sweet home! Nothing more genuine than the nest you love and cherish to create a cozy atmosphere. It's a typical Portuguese home: a Casa Antigua with a kitchen full of beautiful azulejos (ceramics), some vintage furniture and old books. There is the charm of all my travels which Lisbon summarizes perfectly: the SF bridge, the Père Lachaise cemetery, the conviviality of Brussels, the kindness of Montreal and the lights of Congo.
