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 sometimes they let me go on 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, sign up to the mailing list and just generally have a good time.
if at any point you feel bored or disinterested in 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.

My 2014 stand up show is called UnAustralian(ish). I think it’s going to be good fun and I’d love you to come along and see it if you can.
Here’s the blurb thingo:
The First Australians lived here for generations.
In 1995, Tom and his family travelled around the country on holiday.
Last year Tony Abbott became Prime Minister.

Well hot dang! How about that Mardi Gras, huh?
I had an absolute blast cohosting SBS2‘s coverage of the parade and feel very lucky to have been up there alongside the delightful Pat Abboud and Heather Peace.
The whole broadcast is going tp be up on demand for a month on the SBS website here.
Congrats to everyone who marched and all the amazing volunteers who make it happen every year. See you in 2015 ya gaybos!
A bunch of friends and I put together this short film this year. It’s a black comedy/sci-fi/thriller thing, (hopefully) reminiscent of Charlie Brooker‘s Black MIrror series or The Twilight Zone or something like that.
I’d love for you to check it out and pass it on to all your Hollywood friends.
For the record, this idea was conceived, written and put into production prior to me finding out about Spike Jonze‘s new film Her which, as far as I can tell, covers some pretty similar territory in greater depth (with an Arcade Fire soundtrack).
