Get ready for a laughter riot, because Tom Gleeson is back with a bang, armed with his brand-new live show, “Gear”!

The comedy maestro, who has been lighting up television screens as the Hard Quiz Overlord and the Master of Tasks, is returning to his roots, promising an hour of relentless hilarity that has critics raving, “Prepare for an hour of non-stop laughter,” according to Time Out.

Tom Gleeson is no stranger to accolades, boasting a stellar track record with wins at the AACTA Awards 2022 for Best Comedy Performer, and bagging the title of Best Comedy at the Adelaide Fringe 2020 and Perth Fringe World 2019. Now, after a successful stint with “Hard Quiz Live” that saw him touring for two years, Tom is ready to dazzle audiences with his first stand-up show since the sold-out tour of “Lighten Up” in 2020-2021.

The comedy juggernaut kicks off his new tour in Brunswick Heads on 8th November, with plans to grace stages across Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland, before heading to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Brisbane in 2024. It’s a golden opportunity to witness a live comedy superstar in action, showcasing what he does best – stirring up a live crowd with his sharp wit and provocative humour.

In Tom’s own words, “Stand up is my specialty. Television is a beautiful distraction but I’m looking forward to getting back to doing what I do best. Poking and provoking a live crowd.” A seasoned performer, Tom has showcased his comedic prowess at every major comedy festival globally, earning three Helpmann Award nominations in the process.

But Tom’s talents aren’t just confined to the stage. He’s a beloved figure on Australian television, clinching the Gold Logie for the Most Popular Personality and hosting two hit TV shows – the rib-tickling “Hard Quiz” on ABC TV and the entertaining “Taskmaster” on Network Ten.

So, mark your calendars and gear up for a night of laughter and entertainment as Tom Gleeson returns to the stage, ready to deliver a performance that promises to be nothing short of comedic gold. Don’t miss out on the chance to catch this comedy titan live in action!
