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.

Lara Jeffery is the director of MyChoice Australia and describes herself as a right-wing libertarian. She’s all about pushing back against the “nanny state”, reducing the size of government and letting the free market do what it does.

Here we discuss how she came to this worldview and how that plays out in relation to education, healthcare, social justice, housing, smoking, the environment and more. We also cover the legacy of Ayn Rand, claiming the moral ground and Uber.

Boundless Plains To Share is coming to Perth Fringeworld for 2 shows only!

I’m bringing a Work In Progress to Fringeworld from Tuesday January 31st

I’m also touring to Adelaide Fringe, Brisbane Comedy Festival & the Melbourne Comedy Festival
