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.

97 – Eva Cox AO

evacox_logo500

Writer, feminist, sociologist, social commentator, activist and postage stamp honouree Eva Cox AO is a remarkable person. A Jewish refugee child, Eva has always been something of an outsider, agitating for change and asking tough questions her entire life.

In this wide-ranging, educational discussion, Eva sums up the philosophy of neoliberalism and argues the case for social capital. We discuss feminism, Islam, the shortcomings of the same-sex marriage movement, identity politics and the Universal Basic Income. I was inspired and educated by this chat; I hope you like it as much as I did.
