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.

101 – Tim Lo Surdo

This guy is a gun. At just 22 years old, Tim Lo Surdo has advised federal senators and worked at everywhere from the Oaktree Foundation to the Australian Youth Climate Change Coalition to UN Youth to the United Voice union.

He’s now set up an advocacy group called Democracy in Colour: an advocacy group dedicated to combating racism in Australian politics. It’s a fascinating project, and here Tim outlines his personal experiences of racism, the realities of racism and the politics of fear in Australia today, the Left’s failures to combat such racism and how white allies can help (in the right way).

Problematic is coming to Sydney for 4 shows only at the Sydney Comedy Festival

And it’s now on sale for Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017

MICF Great Debate

Had a ball taking on the MICF Great Debate again! I lead the affirmative team alongside the tremendous DeAnne Smith and Andy Zaltzman against the evil and depraved Sammy JJanelle James and Rhys Nicholson on the topic: “YOU’VE GOT TO FAKE NEWS TO MAKE NEWS.”

It was all hosted by Stephen K. Amos and it was jolly good fun.

You can watch the whole thing on ABC iView here.
