Nominee 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show

Winner Best Comedy Performer 2016 Helpmann Awards

Winner Best Local Show 2017 Sydney Comedy Festival 

Tom Ballard is undeniably one of Australia’s comedians. That simply cannot be denied.

He returns to Melbourne in 2024 with a brand-new hour of stand-up, featuring electric zingers and incredible points being made with expert precision. It’ll make you laugh and cry and laugh and think and laugh again. Then it’ll make you gasp and laugh and feel alive and laugh and ponder things and laugh some more.

In 2023 Tom toured his show IT IS I across Australia and the world, picking up rave reviews, a Melbourne International Comedy Festival Most Outstanding Show nomination, sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and an invitation to perform alongside Eddie Izzard at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival along the way.

(People even seemed to like the show in England, even though it involved him yelling rude things about the Queen for over half an hour.)

On top of all that, Tom appeared as lovable sweetheart/terrible cop Constable Sven Alderman in the hit Prime Video series Deadloch, co-hosted his weekly political podcast ‘Serious Danger’ and began the process of cooking up even fresher and gooder jokes about everything that’s going on with the world, etc.

Please note: all sessions of this show may be filmed.
