hello there.

my name’s tom and i’m an australian comedian doing his best.

i used to cohost the breakfast show on triple j,  i hosted my own late-night tv show tonightly with tom ballard and i regularly travel all over the world performing stand-up comedy.

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.

2021 SHOW: WE ARE ALL IN THIS

Hello. It’s my new show for 2021 and it will officially restore comedy.

In this time of fire, plague and the stupid internet, “we” are “all” “in this” “together” (?).

In 2019, Tom sold out shows all over the world, received critical acclaim and annoyed a lot of Baby Boomers on Facebook. In 2020, he took some time off and wrote a book.

Now he has a brand-new show full of jokes about our cooked planet, the bad people in power and his sex life. Plus some outrage.

“A blistering hour of motor-mouthed, slick-as-black-ice comedy.” ★★★★½ Herald Sun

“Will have you laughing til it hurts.” ★★★★½ The Age
