Corporate comedian Tom Gleeson is one of Australia's favourite comedians. You may have seen him on Thank God You're Here, Good News Week, Rove, or the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala. You might know Tom as the Australian Fast Bowler from the Comedy Channel's AFI nominated comedy show, Skithouse, or as a regular on Channel Seven's The Morning Show.
You may have also heard Tom on Mix 101.1 Melbourne's Breakfast Show. Tom got his start in radio as half of the Tom & Subby Show that first appeared on Triple J before it moved to Triple M where it was nominated for an Australian Commercial Radio Award.
Tom was invited to the Middle East to entertain the troops. He went to Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan and other dangerous places nobody dares go. Now he's back safely on Australian soil and presenting at conference and events, he's bursting with unbelievable stories and tales of near death encounters, dodgy politics and tank driving, of course!
In 2008, Tom Gleeson performed his stand up show TOM-A-THON at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. With a 2007 Helpmann Award nomination for Best Comedy Performer under his belt, wit as his weapon of choice, and humour as his hand grenade, Gleeson goes straight to the comedic front line with all guns a-blazing He was also invited back to perform at the Sydney Opera House for the second time.
Tom has also been published by Random House with his story The Italian Job. It appears in Take Me With You a collection of tales of long distance love edited by Sarah MacDonald.
