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 podcast, sign 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.
Melbourne mates, I’m doing two shows at the lovely
Chapel Off Chapel, one of which is going to be filmed for a thing. Come along!
Come watch Tom fix everything by yelling his best jokes in a nice room in front of cameras. Please.
“A true barbarian.” – Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun
“Much of his stand up is about as funny as listening to a recording of one of Joe Stalin’s four-hour rants.” – Gerard Henderson, The Australian
“It’s an hour of absolutely hilarious white-hot rage.★★★★★ ” – Time Out
“Has as a frankly ridiculous ability to hit all his marks and deftly detonate every punchline. ★★★★½ ” – The Age
“Ballard delivers an absolute comedy masterclass.★★★★★” – Beat
“Unrelenting and uproarious.★★★★½ ” – Chortle [UK]
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
