Arizona-raised, now resident in Sydney for 16 years, American stand-up star Tommy Dean occupies the top echelons of Australia’s headline comedy artists. Tommy’s astute, clean, observational comedic style consistently make him a stand out winner with theatre audiences, corporate clients, festival producers, TV and radio shows alike.
With pin sharp banter, genial manner, broad appeal and a vast stock of hilarious routines interweaving the foibles of his adopted home country with the dark reality of his home country Tommy never fails to connect with and impress any audience.
Tommy’s impressive CV of media appearances includes Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Stand Up Australia, Rove Live, Joker Poker, Sunrise, The Today Show and The Sideshow. And our adopted American Tommy has lived in Sydney long enough to carve out a career that has him consistently booked as the go-to crowd warm-up for “smart” TV shows- including the very popular Q and A, Gruen Planet, Gruen Transfer and Tractor Monkeys.
