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.

64 – Edward Bourke

edwardbourkelogo500

Edward Bourke is a 15-year-old right-wing conservative who loves the monarchy, Margaret Thatcher and Donald Trump.

In fact, he loves Trump so much he’s launched The Trump Campaign to support the billionaire’s presidential bid and has been interviewed by Vice, Sunrise and news.com.au – and now me. In this lively discussion, Edward and I cover class, immigration, the importance of morals, Indigenous Australians and why he finds The Donald so appealing.

Despite all our disagreements, I really couldn’t help but find myself quite liking the guy. See what you reckon.

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.
