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 sometimes they let me go on 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, sign 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.

iRis: A Short Film

A bunch of friends and I put together this short film this year. It’s a black comedy/sci-fi/thriller thing, (hopefully) reminiscent of Charlie Brooker‘s Black MIrror series or The Twilight Zone or something like that.

I’d love for you to check it out and pass it on to all your Hollywood friends.

For the record, this idea was conceived, written and put into production prior to me finding out about Spike Jonze‘s new film Her which, as far as I can tell, covers some pretty similar territory in greater depth (with an Arcade Fire soundtrack).
