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 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.

cheers.

6 – Quentin Kenihan

quentinpic400

Quentin Kenihan is a movie star, a TV presenter and producer, friend to celebrities, disability advocate and enthusiastic Jewel fan.

Brought into the national spotlight as a 7-year-old boy with osteogenesis imperfecta (or “brittle bone syndrome”), the Q has experienced the dizzying heights (and lows) of fame, sex and drug use. As he brings his autobiographical show I’m 40…Now What? to the Adelaide Fringe, we chatted about everything from sex workers to inspiration to the late Stella Young to the death penalty to his own funeral.

I even met his dog.

WATCH: Fully Furnished

 

Behold! The web series pilot that Tommy Dassalo and I have been working on for the past 7 or so months.

It is our Chinese Democracy.

We think it’s dumb and funny and original and I’d love you to watch it and maybe even share it amongst your friends and loved ones if you get the chance.

Taxis & Rainbows & Hatred in 2015

Token15_AFF_TB_A3_Generic_v1

 

My 2015 stand up show is called Taxis & Rainbows & Hatred and I think it’s going to be my BEST ONE YET or whatever else you need to hear in order to come along and watch it (please).

I did an early version of the show at the Sydney Fringe Festival and that was a bunch of fun, and now I am tinkering around with it to make it the best it that it can be. It’s about a bad thing that happened to me in a taxi in Newcastle, as well as loneliness, sex, love, labels and finding the courage to be yourself.

Hope to see you guys there.
