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.

93 – Ronny Chieng

ronnychieng_logo500

Comedian and Daily Show correspondent Ronny Chieng is back in Australia at the moment and gave me some of his time to talk about a whole many things. We covered offence, racism, interviewing white supremacists, freedom of speech, outrage, satire in the age of Trump and his conservative upbringing and disposition.

Oh, and my Nazi haircut. Apparently.

Apologies for the slightly not great audio quality on this one. Persevere, please: it’s worth it. It’s Ronny Chieng, for God’s sake.
