Ground-breaking showrunner and comedian, Josh Thomas makes a much-anticipated return to live stand-up in 2024 with a national tour of his brand new show, Let’s Tidy Up.
Written with award-winning playwright Lally Katz, Let’s Tidy Up will have its Australian premiere season at the Sydney Opera House from 31 January before touring to Canberra, Hobart, Newcastle, Cairns, Perth, Melbourne, Toowoomba, Brisbane and Adelaide in February and March. Josh will be hitting the ground running after a 20-date tour of North America through November and December.
This is a show where Josh tidies up. Tidying up is not normally the stuff of gripping drama, but for Josh, it’s like Everest – a fundamentally impossible task, like trying to defy the moon and control the tides. It’s not just about tidying, there’s also gardening, gophers and a love story.
Josh Thomas started his comedy career by winning Australia’s most prestigious stand-up comedy competition at age 17. After several sell-out tours and starring turns on TV panel shows, Josh turned his hand to writing, acting and producing and has garnered glowing reviews and a swag of awards for his groundbreaking television comedies Please Like Me and Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.
Currently, Josh is working on Good Person, a series in development with Hulu & 20th, and he can be seen as the creator, showrunner and star of Everything’s Gonna Be Okay (Freeform, Hulu, Stan (Australia)).
Josh’s first television series, Please Like Me, is a world-renowned queer anthem and was inspired by Josh’s own life. Josh, created, starred in and co-executive produced the series with the ABC (Australia). Over four critically acclaimed seasons, Please Like Me was nominated for an International Emmy Award, GLAAD Media Award and GALECA Dorian Award.
