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.

cheers.

Writer, engineer, former political candidate and now pollster Osman Faruqi has written for Guardian AustraliaJunkee and SBS and regularly tweets like a mofo. He’s the son of Mehreen Faruqi, the first female Muslim to be elected to any Australian parliament (for the Greens, no less) and has recently launched his own polling site, Metapoll, dubbed “the most reliable poll ever”.

Here Osman tells me how he and his mum first became engaged with politics, the dire state of climate politics in Australia today,the lack of diversity in the Greens and the ALMIGHTY POWER OF THE POLLS.
