Tom Ballard

Problematic

 

NOMINEE Barry Award for Best Show Melbourne Comedy Festival, 2016

NOMINEE Best Comedy Edinburgh Fringe, 2016

WINNER Helpmann Award, Best Comedy Performer, 2016

 

“Consistently, archly funny, Ballard is precisely the sort of political commentator the world needs.” ★★★★ – The Scotsman

 

A funny show about whether anything can be funny anymore.

Tom Ballard doesn’t like to brag, but he is desperate for validation, so let’s talk about his achievements. 2016 brought him nominations for Best Show at both the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, aka the two biggest live comedy awards in the world.

No biggie.

He also nabbed the inaugural Pinder Prize (a grant named in honour of comedy impresario John Pinder), made his American television debut on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival and took out the Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer.

Tom’s podcast Like I’m A Six-Year-Old continues to grow from strength to strength and in November he appeared in SBS’s ground-breaking series First Contact.

Simply put, Tom Ballard is a very funny and very interesting comedian. Don’t miss seeing one of the country’s most exciting and insightful voices live in the Spiegeltent as he tackles everything from PC to outrage culture to race relations.
