After leaving Triple J, where he co hosted the national youth station’s breakfast show, comedian Tom Ballard wanted to focus on live stand up. And it’s gone pretty well for him. He’ll be showing Novocastrians just what he’s learned when he lands at the Civic Theatre this weekend (June 5, 6 & 7) for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow.
We had a chat to Tom ahead of his arrival about how he approaches festival gigs, fans who know his personal and intimate details and what he’s got planned for his debut at the Edinburgh fringe festival.
