Little by name, laugh-a-minute by reputation - Tommy Little
If you don't like audience participation, you might want to avoid the aisle seats at Tommy Little's Middleclass Gangster this April. Little wastes absolutely no time in getting to know his crowd, questioning audience members on their love lives, thread count and income.
Over the last year, Little has traversed the path from student-style scrimping to splurging on broccolini, and during his hour-long stand up show he takes us on his journey from making "peanut money" to making "almonds" (in case you're wondering, "pine nut money" is the really big bucks).
After years on the comedy circuit and a career on radio, Little has learnt a thing or two about keeping a roomful of strangers entertained. No matter what your socio-economic status, Little will give you something to laugh at, be it his own awkwardness when filming sex scenes with Aussie screen loyalty, or the glorious prank potential of Snapchat.
His sold out show on Tuesday brought a diverse crowd of all ages, and each and every one of them was kept in stitches for the whole night. So if you're looking to enjoy a bit of home-grown talent this year at the comedy festival, look no further than Tommy Little. Sit back and relax folks, you'll be in good hands.
