Tom will Make You LOL, ROFL, or Maybe Even LYAO
Comedian Tom Gleeson
Tom Gleeson is a master of comedy who just keeps getting funnier every year. Even if you don't know his name, you're sure to know his face, since Tom's been a regular on most of Australia's favourite comedy and panel shows, plus the star of his own hilarious and gutsy segment, I Hate you, Change My Mind while co-hosting Network Ten's This Week Live. But for many, Tom is most fondly remembered as the Australian Fast Bowler on skitHOUSE.
This award winning comedian is bringing his new self-titled show to Powerhouse for this year's Brisbane Comedy Festival, and if past shows are anything to go by, he will book out. His agents describe him as, "A sure fire, killer stand up at the top of his game" and I have to agree.
Having worked at several comedy venues over the years plus socialising with comedians to this day, I've become desensitised to 'funny'. I can quite often intellectually appreciate jokes without laughing, so it takes a lot for me to actually laugh out loud. Last time Tom was in town for the Brisbane Comedy Festival I laughed so hard at his show from beginning to end that I had a sore face and tummy the day after.
Tom's shows are well paced, cheeky, irreverent, honest and fun. I can highly recommend booking now to see this killer stand-up in action this March. If you'd like to keep up with the latest from Tom, you can follow him on Twitter (twitter.com/nonstoptom) or at his website.
