hello there! my name’s tom and i’m an australian comedian just trying to find his way in this crazy world.

i used to cohost the triple j breakfast show, tom & alex, i do quite a bit of live stand up, and i hosted the show reality check on abc tv.

welcome to my website. here you can find out a little bit more about me, read my blog, check out any upcoming gigs i may have, check out my free podcastsign up to the mailing list and just generally have a good time.

if at any point you feel bored by this site’s content and would prefer the excitement and giddy thrills of youtube or online pornography, i suggest opening some new tabs and having the best of both worlds.

Edinburgh 2016


You guys I am returning to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Hurrah! You guys!

I had a bloody blast last year and can’t wait to get back amongst the cobblestones and the drizzle.

The show will be slightly updated with all that silly Australian politics stuff and will almost definitively have some Trump gear in there. I mean, SOMEONE has to take that guy down, right?

Tickets are on sale now and you can grab them here.

70 – David Manne


In a week of Sonia Kruger and Pauline Hanson nonsense, let’s talk to someone who’s actually doing something GOOD for immigrants and refugees and people of colour.

David Manne is a human rights lawyer and the Executive Director of Refugee Legal (formerly the Refugee Immigration Legal Centre or RILC). He’s passionate about helping people who ask our country for – and are deserving of – legal protection.

David gave me the lowdown on the Australian refugee crisis as he sees it: where we’re at, what laws we’re breaking, just how generous we are and what should (and can) happen next – an evacuation of people languishing in our offshore detention centres.
