A-LIST ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS TOM GLEESON - TOM ON!
“…his stories of near-death encounters, muddled politics and being allowed to recklessly drive and fire a tank make for one helluva yarn” **** The Age
Much-loved Australian comedian and television personality Tom Gleeson is bursting with tales to tell in his brand new show about his recent tour as a tonic for the troops in Iraq.
With wit as his weapon of choice and humour as his hand grenade, Gleeson goes straight to the comedic front line with all guns blazing with Tom On!
Having twice sold out the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and recently winning Australia’s Brainiest Radio Star, Sydney audiences will be wildly entertained by his rocket propelled gags.
Gleeson is half of the Tom & Subby Show on Triple M. After making an impression on Triple J and 2DAY FM, they were snapped up by Triple M. Tom was also a cast member on one of Channel Ten's highest rating programs, the sketch comedy show skitHOUSE. In it he played a variety of popular characters including the Australian Fast Bowler.
He has also appeared on numerous other TV shows including Rove Live, Good Morning Australia, Glasshouse, Stand Up, Sunrise, World Comedy Tour, Good News Week as well as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala.
Tom started his comedy career in stand up. At Sydney University he entered a competition that he won! From there he has gone on to perform in every capital city in Australia as well as London, Edinburgh, Montreal, Singapore and Jakarta making him one of the most sort after headline acts in the country.
Tom has also performed in his own one man shows at various festivals and it is through this good work that he was selected to perform as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005.
It was also at the 2003 Melbourne Comedy Festival that Tom was selected to be part of the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.
